Who We Are

Contino is a global technical consultancy who specialise in helping highly-regulated enterprises transform faster, modernising their way of working.

We focus on people, process and technology to enable rapid digital innovation, and work with you through every step, from concept to delivery.

Founded in 2014 by Matt Farmer and Benjamin Wootton, we’ve now grown to over 200 people worldwide, with offices in London, New York, Atlanta, Sydney and Melbourne.

We partner with AWS, HashiCorp and Kubernetes. And we hold AWS Financial Services and DevOps competencies; are approved to perform AWS Well-Architected Reviews; and hold over 50 AWS certifications.

What We Do

We’ve worked on over 100 enterprise engagements with over 70 of the world’s leading brands, so we fully understand the challenges you face.

How do you scale at speed and stay secure? Through Enterprise DevOps, cloud computing, security and compliance, and cloud-native approaches. We can help you accelerate your journey and get the most out of DevOps and cloud based operating models.

We also apply our Contino Operating Model to our engagements with you - aligning our entire organisation - from engineering, consulting, marketing, finance, people and talent management - to deliver market leading outcomes and ensure your success.

Our Vision

In this complex and trying business environment, the necessary condition of survival is the ability to deliver more value and innovation in less time.

And how do you do this? Today, it is by delivering quality software and better technology – quickly and reliably.

It is this software-driven innovation that will create the difference between those companies that forge success on the basis of continuous value creation, and the majority that slide into oblivion.

Contino was born digital and born in the cloud. Our first-class engineers have made the journey many times before, and know what works and what doesn't. And we are here to accelerate you through the difficult transformation that will make you competition-ready - with less pain and less risk.

What Makes Us Unique

Enterprise DevOps in the Cloud:
We focus exclusively on helping enterprises transform by adopting a DevOps operating model along with the associated tools, techniques, platforms and architectures for modern software development, in the cloud.

Engineering-First Approach:
Our team is comprised of leading DevOps and automation domain experts, and we foster an innovative engineering culture. We are thought leaders in the global DevOps and Cloud community.

Financial Services:
We have vast financial services and insurance sector expertise, helping organisations move at velocity whilst addressing governance, compliance, controls and other regulatory requirements. We apply best practice and disruptive technologies based on our experience in other sectors to FSI.

Scale and Capabilities:
$30M in funding and backed by leading VC, Columbia Capital, allows us to scale and meet large enterprise needs successfully with our multi-regional capabilities (EMEA, AMER, APAC).

Pragmatic Dual Approach:
We are easy and flexible to work with. We don’t do big reports – instead we roll our sleeves up and work with our clients to both execute transformation and upskill their teams to deliver innovative software solutions securely, at velocity.

Metric and Business Case Driven Approach:
We turn DevOps and public cloud adoption into a science, tracking the efficiencies that we gain and mapping them back to a rigorous business case.

Our History

Established in 2014, we have swiftly become one of the industry’s leading transformational IT consultancies

Contino was founded by Matt Farmer and Benjamin Wootton with the aim of supporting enterprises in their adoption of DevOps and cloud computing. We secured a wide range of exciting cloud, infrastructure automation, and full stack software development projects in our first year.

Contino grew rapidly and built a talented team, a powerful partner network, deep intellectual property, and a blue chip roster of enterprise clients globally. During 2015, the business grew by 400% year-on-year. Contino was one of the first organizations to strategically partner with Docker, Inc. to help companies adopt container technology.

Contino raised USD $30m in VC funding from Columbia Capital. The funding and strategic advice supports the continued growth and provides unparalleled ability to build a deep talent pool at scale within our areas of expertise. Contino also achieved Amazon Web Services APN Advanced Consulting Partner status.

With financial backing and a mandate to transform, Contino doubled in size in terms of revenue and employee count over the course of 2017. We continued to add key logos as well as the AWS DevOps and Financial Services competencies. 

We continue to work to be the partner of choice for enterprise organizations, helping them to thrive through better software delivery and the successful adoption of modern agile ways of working coupled with cloud and container technology. With offices in London, New York, Atlanta and Melbourne, we continue to grow our team and client base.
