The IT company Copernica

We are a leading and very successful software company that deals with all aspects of email. We enable large organizations to send substantial amounts of email and automate communication flows. We do this with a number of successful products.

Copernica has a flat organizational structure, in which small teams are responsible for one or more products. These teams are independent and very innovative. We are a flexible organisation and work together a lot. In addition, there is enough space to develop yourself too.

Copernica is a mature organization. That gives a lot of security compared to for example a start-up. Yet Copernica never left that start-up culture and is still very flexible and informal. At the moment there are many opportunities within Copernica. We are always looking for talent that is looking for a challenge and wants to grow with and within this great organization.


Some of our open source libraries:

PHP-JS : an bridge between PHP and Javascript. To execute JavaScript right from PHP code and to share variables between JavaScript and PHP.

PHP-CPP : A well documented C++ library for developing PHP extensions. This C++ library makes building PHP extensions fun. Extensions built on top of PHP-CPP are easy to understand and simple to maintain. unlike regular PHP extensions - which are really hard to implement and require a deep knowledge of the Zend engine and pointer manipulation.

AMQP-CPP is a c++ library for asynchronous non-blocking communication with RabbitMQ. The library can be used to parse incoming data from a RabbitMQ server, and to generate frames that can be sent to a RabbitMQ server.

REACT-CPP : an event loop library that utilizes the C++ lambda functions to notify you when there is activity on a filedescriptor or on a timer. Internally, it is a wrapper around the libev library, and does therefore also depend on that library.

And many more open source libraries. Take a look at our Github page .
