Our story

We are committed to the betterment of humanity.

Since Day One, we've been on a mission: to use our skills in design and technology to make a real difference in the world. While our story has taken a few twists and turns, it is that mission that keeps us moving forward to building a more healthy and resilient future.

Zach, Exygy's founder, finishes his AmeriCorps*VISTA program and begins Exygy as an engineering firm focused on working with small non-profits. Exygy partners with MoveOn.org as one of our first clients.
Exygy moves to its first office at 833 Market St. (across from the Powell Cable Cars) and hires our first full-time employee.
Exygy becomes a certified B Corp — the 250th B Corp certified, ever!

We hire our 5th employee, Pierre Hunault, as a software engineering intern. Pierre will end up staying with Exygy for over a decade: 9 years as a full-time team member, and today as part of our community of experts — a core contributor across multiple Exygy projects.
Exygy begins work on DAHLIA, an open-source project to improve access to affordable housing in San Francisco. DAHLIA lays the foundation for Exygy's continued housing work, which will go on to be implemented in many Bay Area jurisdictions.

Our team of 18 moves to San Francisco's Mission District.
Exygy focuses our work into three sectors: Civic, Health, and Philanthropy. These sectors align us on the ways we want to create impact — through building healthy and resilient communities.
Exygy becomes a founding member of the Digital Services Coalition, a collection of agile technology and design firms that are transforming how government serves the people.

Exygy transitions to a fully remote team, with team members spanning across 13 U.S. cities.

After the murder of George Floyd on May 25, 2020, our team brought in The Justice Collective to assess Exygy's existing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) practices, and facilitate the creation of a 5 year DEI roadmap to hold us accountable to taking measurable, sustainable steps forward towards racial justice within our workspace.
