About IST

This is Us!

Together with our users we develop digital solutions for a better way of learning.

The leading edtech company in Scandinavia

More than 5 million users. 400 co-workers and 9 offices. From Kiruna in northern Sweden to Munich in southern Germany. We are the leading edtech company in Scandinavia!

For more than 40 years we have made the everyday life easier for students, parents, teachers and managers. Half of us that work here have a background as teachers or school leaders, so we understand all aspects of school. Together we make sure everyone has the opportunity to learn more.

We’re driven by our intent to create the best tools for learning

We learn from past experience. We support the educators of today. Most of all, we help create the leaders of tomorrow. Everyday.

It’s been this way since the 80’s, when an idea was born in a garage in Växjö. An idea that would grow into a multinational business with hundreds of co-workers. But no one knew, yet – except for maybe our founder, Björn Sundeby.

Björn wanted to do something of importance to society, and to do it really well. Since IST was founded in 1982, that “something” has been to provide quality solutions to empower learning.

Our four core values

HONEST – We are trustworthy. We keep what we promise and only promise what we can keep.

PROFESSIONAL – We always keep the customers’ best interests in mind. We prepare for the worst, hope for the best, and embrace positive change.

CREATIVE – Be creative. Be passionate. Share ideas, develop your thoughts, implement them into your work!

RESOURCEFUL – We are capable of making the most of what we have. By having a sustainable approach, we will ensure long-time success together.

For a sustainable future

Our sustainability efforts can be broken down into initiatives, which together build a bridge between our core business, carbon footprint, software development and the 2030 sustainability agenda.
