Team and careers

Datakit was founded in 1994 by Francis CADIN.

He is a postgraduate mechanical engineer. After his graduation, he decided to spend several years to explore different countries and cultures (Brazil, India, Ivory Coast and French Guyana) where he worked as an engineer and a teacher. In 1986, he came back to France and learned computer engineering. After that, he spent a couple of years working in CAM. He got his first contact with data exchange being hired by the GOSet (former French organization dedicated to the CAD data exchange standard format SET). At that time, he also discovered the STEP format and its huge capability. It was the very beginning of CAD data exchange development and he was enthusiastic to take part in such an adventure. In 1994, he decided to create Datakit, a private company aimed to develop and promote its own CAD data exchange solutions.

In 2015, Francis CADIN reached his retirement age and the company was successfully taken over by its employees. It is now managed as a cooperative by Olivier RIGOLLET, who held the position of CFO since the beginnings of Datakit. The choice of this organization has strengthened the exceptional cohesion that makes the strength of Datakit. During the transfer, the entire team was preserved and new engineers joined the team, proof of a successful transmission.

R&D and technical teams are based in Lyon as well as in Marseille. Most of them come from the university and are postgraduate in computer science.

The skills the company has on board and its ability to listen to customers, propose solutions and document them, go a long way to explaining its success. All the team does its utmost to develop close links with customers, and they seem to appreciate this. Datakit's action must be seen in the long term, especially as it operate on a market where customers are upgrading existing solutions.

A specific team dedicated to data transfer services is able to meet the needs of the most demanding customers. Most of them are engineering or design departments of manufacturing companies. The team benefits from a long term experience and high skilled range of tools to deliver ready to use translated data and to convert full data base or complex assemblies that demand specific treatment (healing, simplification, export?). This team is located in Lyon.

Sales, marketing and administrative teams are based in Lyon as well as in Floure (near Carcassonne). They are in charge of the relationships with software companies, as well as with the worldwide networks of resellers. They worked very closely with the R&D and technical departments.
