Hi, we’re Safe Software, innovators in spatial data since 1993.

The seeds of Safe’s growth.

While working on a geospatial forestry data sharing project in British Columbia, co-founders Don Murray and Dale Lutz saw the challenge to be solved firsthand. The need to exchange data across different systems and organizations existed, the solution didn’t. Cue the creation of Safe Software.

Growing into a world of possibilities.

Don and Dale began developing a prototype of what would later become FME, our software platform that connects people, organizations and entire enterprises through what was once incompatible data. Today, we’ve grown into a thriving business with hundreds of employees and tens of thousands of customers worldwide.

Nearly 30 years in, and we’re just getting started.

It’s hard to believe we’ve been at it since 1993. Especially since we feel like we are just getting started.

The Safe team is growing, and we’re looking for amazing people to join us so we can reach new heights together.

Connecting to our communities.

Safe Software is more than a company – it’s a collection of connected communities. Putting people first is the best way to make a positive impact on all of the communities we’re a part of.
