We Help Developers Build Better Software
The world is shifting to cloud native architectures and this transforms how software is being built. Developers need to adopt new patterns and tools to code, ship, and run software in modern cloud environments. We’re accelerating this shift by putting the first-ever cloud native Developer Control Plane in the hands of every developer and at the heart of every company. And we need your help to accomplish this mission.
Open Source FTW
All our technologies are built entirely around open source projects within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) ecosystem. This includes top projects we’ve authored and donated, like Emissary-ingress and Telepresence. With 150+ contributors and 7,000+ combined Github stars, our products are being used by tens of thousands of startups and enterprises worldwide.
How We Work Together
Originally founded in Boston, our company has evolved into a remote-first team that favors speed, boldness, and transparency. We believe you should be able to do your best work from anywhere that makes you happiest while using the best tools and technologies to stay connected and productive. But don’t worry, we still get to see one another in-person at conferences, Meetups, our Boston office, team offsites, and on the road while visiting customers.
Because of our open source roots, we’ve adopted a growth mindset by empathizing with our users and teaching them how to be successful with cloud native technologies along the way. This, coupled with a loose adoption of Basecamp’s Shape-Up approach, has influenced how we structured our product releases into 8-week cycles (6 weeks building + a 2-week cooldown), all while sustaining a culture of failsafe engineering and operational excellence.
We’re continually tuning how we work but if this sounds like an environment where you’ll thrive, we’d love to hear from you.
