Our driving philosophy

At StoryMate, we believe in giving newsrooms the freedom to use and grow their CMS however they want.

We created StoryMate because we knew — as journalists, designers and technologists — what it’s like to be tethered to an expensive, proprietary CMS that you don’t own. The StoryMate solution is centered around WordPress, an open-source, reliable platform used by over a third of the Internet. We designed it that way so you could go on using it whether we’re there or not.

Don’t want to work with us anymore? No problem. StoryMate is yours — free from costly licensing fees, with the freedom to grow it as you wish.

Join us as we change how the news is published.


Under the Hood

Among the technology pieces that make StoryMate hum:


WordPress: Our expert developers harnessed the leading open-source content management system for ease of use, reliability and to eliminate the prospect of pricey licensing fees.


Pantheon: The most reliable and flexible hosting platform around. We built StoryMate with it, and we recommend staying with it for seamless operation.
