About Ghost

We're a proud non-profit organisation building open source technology for journalism.

Ghost was founded in April 2013, after a very successful Kickstarter campaign to create a new platform focused solely on professional publishing. Our mission is to create the best open source tools for independent journalists and writers across the world, and have a real impact on the future of online media.

Today Ghost powers an incredible range of websites; from individual bloggers who are just getting started, to large teams of writers and editors at some of the largest organisations in the world. We've built a sustainable business around a free core application, funded by a premium platform as a service to run it on.

Behind the scenes, we're just a group of weird, fun-loving humans who enjoy experimenting with new technology. We believe in creating as much freedom in the world as we can, and everything we do is based on that core principle.

We set Ghost up as non-profit foundation so that it would always be true to its users, rather than shareholders or investors. Our legal constitution ensures that the company can never be bought or sold, and one hundred percent of our revenue is reinvested into the product and the community.

As a public organisation we also believe in being transparent and accountable for everything we do, so we publish our live financial data for all to see.

About Ghost

Professional, modern, open source publishing.

Ghost is the #1 content management system on Github, and the most popular modern open source publishing platform in the world.

We make a free, MIT licensed core product which is available to anyone - and offer a fully managed Platform As A Service for businesses to run the software with ease. Tahe company and the project is structured as a sustainable non-profit organisation.

The company launched with a $350,000 Kickstarter campaign in 2013 (the #2 most-funded OSS project of all time), shipped its first version 6 months later, and became profitable 6 months after that.

Today, Ghost is used by some of the largest organisations in the world - including Apple, OpenAI, DuckDuckGo, NASA, Sky News, Cloudflare, The Stanford Review, and many more - with net revenue of $2,000,000+ per year.

Ghost Foundation Team

Our virtual headquarters is in Singapore, but we're a fully remote team spread all over the world. Between us, we cover 4 continents, 5 nationalities and 6 languages. All the work we do happens online, with no office to speak of. We use great tools like Slack, Zoom and Github to collaborate efficiently, harnessing the formidable power-of-the-internet™ to get things done.

We spend our days talking to each other and developing beautiful, open source products using modern technology to power the future of online publishing.
