We do what we say
We say what we do
Being a successful digital transformation provider in Switzerland, Axon Group quickly faced a scaling problem: we struggled to recruit enough developers to build our digital products and services.
Trying out different IT labor markets, Markus Baur, our CEO, succeeded in 2008 with his first development team in Ho Chi Minh City.
The available talents, the open-minded culture, and the advantageous framework conditions have convinced Markus to establish a software development company in Vietnam and offer the development services to clients from all over the world.
Across the world
Axon Active started as Axon Group's solution to skilled developer shortage and growing because the founders understand client's problems and strive to mitigate them.
At Axon Active, our mission is to make software development a worthy and high-return investment for companies worldwide. With our Axon Model™, you will get direct access to an individual high-performance team.
Our history begins in Lucerne, Switzerland, where our founders, Stefan Muff and Dr. Uli Sigg, built Axon Group to offer solutions for the challenges of digital transformation. Having come across many business owners who struggled to innovate and implement new technology in their business, Stefan and Dr. Uli pursued a solution to address their customer's concerns.
HCMC - Vietnam
The idea of flexible and affordable software development services becomes the foundation of Axon Active. It was 2008 when our first software engineer teams started to operate in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
We made our first move up North to a beautiful beach city - Da Nang.
The office soon became one of the most desirable workplaces in Da Nang, and provided opportunities to thousands of talented software engineers in central provinces.
The Scrum Breakfast event was started in 2012. It has become the most well-known monthly Scrum event where people with the same interest in Agile software development would sit down and enjoy their free breakfast while discussing and exchanging everything about Scrum and Agile.
DevDay Da Nang
In early 2015, our dream of a big playground where IT students and developers can engage with experts in the field came true with DevDay Da Nang. Our first event attracted over 800 students, IT staff, and 24 speakers from local and overseas businesses. What we did triggered other IT companies to join hands in growing this potential playground and becoming one of Vietnam's biggest IT events.
In late 2015, our San Francisco office was opened to American corporations, allowing them to find more affordable and suitable software development services outside of Silicon Valley.
New talents explored
Axon Active extend to Can Tho city, only a 3-hour drive from Ho Chi Minh City, and with an international airport at the heart of the Mekong Delta.
Due to the business growth, we doubled in office size with a modern workplace design in the Ho Chi Minh City headquarter, which shows our continued success story.
