To relentlessly deliver dependable realtime capabilities in their simplest form, right into the hands of developers.

About us

Ably provides an infrastructure layer to handle complex, behind-the-scenes realtime communication that powers things like chat, live updates in maps or apps, IoT device control, and more. There's no infrastructure to provision or manage - just simple yet powerful and versatile SDKs and APIs that let you quickly add innovative realtime capabilities to your application with a few lines of code.

Flexible working approach

Flexibility has been a big part of Ably's working culture since the very beginning, and it works for so many reasons: people are motivated, they feel trusted and we respect each other's time. It's awesome to have this celebrated by Flexa. We'll continue to make sure we have a company culture that recognises the individual, along with the impact and contribution they make; not the hours they work.

Benchmarking score

Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.


Employee benchmarking score

Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
