About us:

Cheppers was founded in 2012 and today we are the market leaders among the Hungarian Drupal companies, with a strong international reputation. We currently have 60+ colleagues who work on cloud services, Drupal based web solutions, web design and development consulting, and UX & UI planning.

  • We believe in continuous learning and we like to share knowledge with each other through in-house training.
  • Most of our colleagues have participated in open source projects.
  • We are regular attendees/presenters/organizers/code sprinters/sponsors of professional conferences in Hungary and abroad.
  • More than half of our team members have visited our clients in Western Europe and the USA to work on-site or to attend team building events.
  • We have opened an office in New York City and we are currently building a team in the USA. 

We work in two ways:

  1. We team up with our international clients and work together with their colleagues - due to different working methods and approaches, this is an excellent opportunity to grow professionally and do some networking.
  2. We work on full projects, forming our own in-house teams - because of this, we have the opportunity to take part in every step of the process.
