We are auticon, an award-winning international technology company with a strong social mission – to create equal employment opportunities for autistic adults. We employ autistic people with technology skills to deliver high-quality projects for our blue-chip clients.

Founded in Germany in 2011, today we operate in 8 countries – Germany, UK, France, Italy, Switzerland, USA, Canada and Australia – and are supported by investors including Richard Branson and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
