About Us

Teleport

Teleport is a remote-first technology company with satellite offices in Oakland and Seattle. We enable engineers to quickly access any computing resource anywhere on the planet.

History

Our Story

  • Teleport founders fell in love with programming by giving a computer some instructions and watching the magic happen. The close relationship between a programmer, a machine, and code felt special.

  • We went to college and joined the workforce. We even launched our own startups and witnessed the transition of programming from one machine to many and eventually to cloud computing. This brought enormous complexities into our lives. Half of our effort now goes towards erecting and continuously maintaining complex "cloud environments" for our programs.

  • Each environment consists of numerous layers of computing resources, each with its own trust model, often separated by network boundaries and overburdened with excessive configuration. Not only is this complexity slowing us down, but it is also prone to human errors, resulting in poor security.

  • We started the company because we found this mess with environments…unpleasant. We liked the simplicity of giving instructions to a computer better. Can we have that in the modern era of cloud computing?

  • We believe the answer is yes, but we have to let go of environments and leap into environment-free computing, i.e. fully embrace the promise of the cloud and treat the entire planet as a single, multi-tenant computer. That computer needs a simple and secure access plane.

Teleport Manifesto

Today's computing environments have too much complexity, too many network boundaries, and too little trust. Complexity slows engineers down and leads to human errors. Complex systems can’t be secure despite the red tape of bureaucracy. We make trusted computing simple. This gives engineers freedom to move and freedom to build a better future.

Our Engineering Principles

Product and Engineering Principles

  • We believe in being paid for quality work

    We believe in being paid for quality work

    There's an incredible amount of software infrastructure that is under-funded and ignored. We believe our software needs to generate revenue to employ the best minds.

  • We balance openness and transparency

    We balance openness and transparency

    We work as much as we can in the open; our commits, designs, and comments are largely in public repositories for anyone to use and observe. We strive to find balance in open-core and community-friendly software versus competing in a dynamic and evolving market segment. All our security critical code is developed in the open. Our independent audits get published, even the unflattering ones.

  • We want to tackle and solve the hard problems

    We want to tackle and solve the hard problems

    We want to minimize the theater in security products, and offer meaningful improvements to security posture. We want to focus on the user, having a product that users aren't trying to work around to get their jobs done. We want to end passwords as a vehicle for trust, including passwords in disguise such as tokens.
