The story behind Codemill: the passion, the power, & the potential


Once upon a time...there were two friends, Johanna & Rickard, who wanted to make a dream come true. Johanna had just finished her PhD in Computing Science and Rickard was working as a developer. They wanted to gather their knowledge and create a fun place with international customers and interesting tasks. They founded Codemill.

The doors to Codemill opened in 2007, and in 2008 we became a Swedish limited company. Our first employees are still around, which is important for what we call "the codemillism". During the years we have made some amazing partners, met a lot of great customers, and been challanged in many interesting projects. We can honestly call ourselves experts in technical video solutions.


Today, we are about 45 colleagues, but we are growing all the time. Most of us have an MSc (or higher) in computing science and/or interaction technology and design. We are working with many major international companies, mostly in the media and fashion industries. Having so close ties to the academia and other technology intensive partners, we can really say that we develop cutting edge video technology. Our aim is to grow further in the media and broadcast industry internationally, while keeping the heart and the head office in Umeå.
