The NINJa printing system was developed by the Academic Technologies Group of Academic Information Systems at Columbia University. It grew out of a previous homegrown printing system called "Jake" which was initially installed in 1991. The "Jake" system had various limitations which motivated Columbia to reignite development of a new and improved system. The new system became known as "NINJa" ("NINJa Is Not Jake").

Code for NINJa was first contributed by Joe Wang. The primary system architect is David Baisley. Other development efforts have been contributed by David Coulthart, George Garrett, and Barak Zahavy. Additional contributions made by Matt Selsky.
