What you should know about e-Core after 21 years in tech
For more than two decades, our purpose has been shaping a brighter future by empowering minds to make technology delivery happen.
e-Core completes 21 years of history
Founded in 1999, May is e-Core’s anniversary month. Our technology solutions combine people, tools, and processes, helping our customers’ companies solve business challenges.
We are very proud of our 21 years of achievements. In this article, you will learn a little about e-Core’s history and the five main pillars guiding its culture and daily work.
It all started with Java
Three Hewlett-Packard employees shared a single vision of creating a technology company grounded in core cultural values, managed by excellent organizational principles, and especially offering an inspiring work environment.
Leandro Pompermaier, Márcio Silveira, and Vinícius Pinheiro launched e-Core, initially as a Java training center.
Soon their way of work attracted larger customers like multinational agribusiness and food production company Bunge. Java training expanded into software development.
From Brazil to the world
Assuming an important role in an integration project for Bunge in 2004, e-Core started coordinating United States operations too. Achieving success, it marked e-Core’s first international experience.
In the same year, given the need to scale operations and optimize management of projects and development teams, e-Core started using Jira, Atlassian’s planning, tracking, and collaboration tool.
As e-Core rapidly and successfully expanded its software development footprint by improving its own internal processes, e-Core’s expertise using Jira sparked interest among customers and partners. Seeing an opportunity, e-Core started selling licenses for the tool, becoming an Atlassian partner in 2006.
Since then, e-Core has helped companies deliver better and faster technology solutions. Offering software development, expertise in business agility, and the authority of an Atlassian Platinum Solution Partner Enterprise, e-Core solves complex technological challenges at the speed that the market demands.
Today, e-Core’s more than 300 qualified professionals already served 250 clients in countries including Brazil, United States, Iceland, Japan, Australia, Germany, Portugal, Russia, and others.
The company operates in 25 market segments, having delivered more than 200 optimized projects, 2 million hours of technical support, and per year, 50,000 hours in Atlassian solutions.
Our core values
Technologies come and go; what really makes e-Core different for us all these years is staying true to its essence, the DNA, created by our founders 21 years ago.
There are five core values e-Core takes very seriously. These genuinely permeate the organization, guiding our attitudes and decisions every day.
Combining these values with the power of people, the inevitable result is an inspiring culture driving 21 years of success and growth, and an even brighter future.
Our five core values are:
We believe in collaboration and diversity of perspectives and skills. We buy-in and commit to decisions despite initial disagreement and hold each other accountable. We focus on achieving superior results by having a common understanding, sharing goals, helping each other, and caring about teammates.
Building a transparent and safe work environment for team members to speak up is a top priority. We don’t shy away from demonstrating our weaknesses and asking for help. We encourage clear and direct feedback, always valuing respect and sincerity.
Deliver & Delight
We developed the ability to put ourselves in our customers’ shoes, always doing the right thing. We understand their needs and constantly seek the best technology solutions, showing a sense of urgency and responsibility, setting expectations, and fulfilling our commitments.
We are adaptable and see changes as good opportunities. Working with Lifelong Learning means learning from our mistakes and successes in equal measure, without losing our confidence. We embrace ongoing and self-motivated development, seeking improvements by leveraging evidence for data-based decisions.
We understand that everyone plays an important role in shaping the company’s future. For this reason, we promote autonomy for our employees to change realities and lead changes. The status quo does not satisfy us and, for this reason, we constantly raise the bar for our teams.
We’re just getting started
For us, business growth and success has always been directly related to three factors: having a clear purpose, directing decisions and attitudes based on our core values , and having the desire to shape a brighter future through technology solutions.
In the coming years, we will continue to be guided by these aspects, seeking to positively impact our customers’ technology delivery and provide incredible development opportunities for the people who are part of our team.
Technologies come and go; what really makes e-Core different, now and into the future, is staying true to its essence.
