Back2.dev’s mission is to provide IT services to companies and not for profit organisations.

Back2bikes has been operating since 2012, using the money generated from bike sales and servicing to fund charitable activities for low income earners and the socially disadvantaged. We started out building technology for Back2bikes, and share similar objectives, but instead of helping individuals, we are helping charitable organisations to operate cheaply and efficiently.

We recognise that NFP’s often don’t have enough money to pay for technology services, so our aim is to build services they can use for a reasonable price. As we scale our offerings, the incremental cost of providing services to NFP’s approaches zero.

Our activities will be staffed by a mixture of paid staff and volunteers. Our aim is to reward our volunteers with a variety of non-financial benefits, such as

  • Learning new techniques
  • Extending themselves
  • Satisfaction that they are contributing to a worthy cause
  • Working in a team of like minded people
  • Having time to learn without performance pressure
  • Taking responsibility for designing and delivering
  • Contributing to the open source software community
  • Gaining experience
  • Building a personal reputation in IT
