The history of Lunatech

About us

Discover our history, learn about our culture, and take a look at our experience.



The Lunatech group was founded in the Netherlands in 1993, with a subsidiary in France since 2016. Lunatech is a provider of solutions and years of experience.

We build custom software systems for our customers. Our focus is on systems integration, backend systems and custom dashboards. We are a JVM shop with lots of Java and Scala experience over the last decade. We’re not tied to specific technologies: we look for what suits each project. To give a concrete example, we do a fair amount of Scala with Akka, Spark, Play framework and we often use Elastic Search, MongoDB, Postgres. Whenever possible we use open source technologies.

Lunatech is a challenging organisation with self-managing developers. In small teams we work on projects for our customers, both from customer location and from our own offices in Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Paris, and Belgium. We don’t have account or project managers: our senior developers are responsible for the successful delivery of their projects.

We regularly work from our customers’ offices because we believe that that’s the best way to discover their real needs. On Fridays however, we all work from the office in Rotterdam or Amsterdam, to share knowledge, get better at what we are doing, and to experiment with new technology!

The beginnings

Our History

Lunatech was founded in 1993 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands by developers. The company is now managed by a group of experienced people, who have managed to stay active in development. This proximity makes it possible to understand the developer’s job as well as possible. The Lunatech group has about 100 employees with 24 located in France. With about twenty different nationalities, many in our Dutch office, we are a multi-cultural company. Openness to others, attentiveness to everyone, and a relatively flat management style, all reflect our Dutch sprit. In France, we mainly work for major accounts such as Disneyland Paris, UPS, Darva and the Volkswagen group. We are based in Chessy near the Val d’Europe station. We work in France on Niort and Lyon for various clients.
