Our Story

Convermax is a privately-owned American company with a Russian origin.

Our history began on October 16, 2011 - the day we committed the first line of code into a new repository. By the end of 2012, we had several big clients running our site search technology on their websites. On May 26, 2014, we incorporated in the US and moved all Convermax-related assets into the new company. For a long time, product development was bootstrapped by Renaissance IT profits - a consulting company in Russia that Convermax founder Alex Sherbachev has been running since 2007. Only in 2016 did we finally pass the break-even point. That allowed us to expand our product development efforts and implement new features and platform integrations, which we continue to do today.
