Digital in mind. Impact at heart.

Cadent acknowledges the Jagera and Turrbal people, the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and live. We pay our respects to their elders past, present and emerging.

About Us

Cadent is an ethical technology studio with a mission to align technology to humanity.


We comprehend your strategic objectives, then build digital products and systems to achieve them.


We work fast to assess and understand your organisation's strategic positioning, then use digital transformation, agile and lean methodologies to develop a roadmap that will achieve your goals in the desired timeframe.


Cadent's team of agility, design, engineering and delivery specialists will work directly with your people and customers to rapidly develop and continuously deliver world-class systems, sites, apps and platforms with humanity and impact at heart.


Our purpose is to align technology to humanity. We do this in three ways.

Donating profits to the world's most pressing causes.

Cadent is a Social Traders Certified social enterprise and has taken the Giving What We Can Pledge. We donate more than 50% of profits to causes identified as the most pressing for humanity. Our most recent donations have been directed towards AI alignment research, governance and standards, and our recent pro-bono work has provided support to social impact projects that would otherwise have gone unfunded.

Working to the highest standards of ethics and sustainability.

We're designed for impact from the ground, up. We are ISO 27001 certified, demonstrating our commitment to digital rights and privacy, and carry robust environmental, social and governance standards to ensure we make a net-positive impact on society just by operating.

Building with impact at heart.

Accessibility and inclusion isn't a feature, it's a foundation. Our human-centred approach — augmented by user research, design thinking, agile ways of working, and inclusive design techniques — ensures that we not only deliver maximum value to users and stakeholders, but that all our work benefits the widest range of people regardless of its unique context.
