Want to create the future together?
How it all started.
In 2011, a little boy with big, beautiful eyes entered Veronica’s research laboratory at the University of Porto. Like most children, he loved to play with his favorite computer games. However, he always played alone.
Suffering from severe autism, he experienced significant challenges in communicating with his family and friends. On that day, he and his father sat together at a table playing an experimental game developed by Veronica’s team which enabled the mimicking and drawing of facial expressions on a 3D character. The little boy’s father would gently take his son’s trembling hand and help him draw with unrelenting empathy and patience. After a while, something magical happened and the little boy smiled. A priceless smile.
That day, new technology created a very human moment of connection between a father and a son. And a new form of communication had been inspired. Could it contribute to more human, authentic digital communication? Could this technology help more people connect better? What if we created a digital version of people that made technology more human by bringing the richness of who we are to our digital interactions? Didimo’s mission was born.

Working at Didimo.
As a company, our values keep us on the right path. We continually strive to do and be better than yesterday by seeking to:
We respect the trust that is placed in us to build a cutting edge technology for digital humans by all. We understand that we do not have all the answers and will need help to tackle the tough questions we should and need to answer. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
We believe in treating others as we would like to be treated. To always start from a place of kindness, empathy, and respect, avoiding judgment and blame.
Never Stop Learning
We are open to and actively seek to always be learning. Not only about what advances our technology but about what surrounds us. The world is a borderless classroom where we grow by learning about what is different, new, not yet asked or answered.
We recognize that we are part of a wider community and that together we can contribute to a better future for all by giving when and where we can. Paying forward without expecting payback.
We are passionately committed to our vision of making the (digital) world more human. We will face challenges and some may seem insurmountable. But we will not give up because we believe in our vision and in each other.
Get Stuff Done
We believe that our technology can have a positive impact on countless moments of digital interaction and people across the world, enabling everyone to be part of this new digital world. We will strive every day to make this a reality, delivering on our commitments to each other, our clients, and the wider community.
We aim to try to inspire ourselves and others to make the world a better place by being “the change we want to see” (Gandhi). We believe that sometimes the most powerful change can happen in one word, one smile, one call.
