About Us

Developers can change the world.

Empowered developers can change the world faster.

Our mission is to empower developers to own the services they deliver.

We are Datawire, the company behind Ambassador, the most popular Kubernetes-Native API Gateway. We built Ambassador to help developers own the services they deliver. What we call service ownership. With service ownership, developers own services, not just the code behind the services. Developers can safely write, deploy, release, and run code, enabling them to rapidly change services and observe the impact of those changes. This process creates an accelerating loop of experimentation and improvement. The result is that our customers code, test, and ship services at blistering fast rates when compared to their competitors.

Built for Kubernetes managed environments, the Ambassador Edge Stack, goes beyond traditional API Gateways and Ingress Controllers with the advanced edge features needed to support developer self-service. Built on the industry-leading Envoy Proxy, the Ambassador Edge Stack is available in both open source and commercial editions. Ambassador Edge Stack is the most popular Kubernetes-native API Gateway.

Headquartered in Boston, Datawire has development locations around the world, including Portland, London, and Montreal.
