About Us

We help companies stay secure while moving fast

Teleport is trusted by the world’s most innovative companies who refuse to trade agility for security. By consolidating all aspects of infrastructure access into a single platform, Teleport reduces attack surface area, cuts operational overhead, easily enforces compliance, and improves productivity.

Our Vision

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 Culture

How we behave

Company values are great, but behavior is what we all live every day. If you join us as an employee, or trust us as a customer, these are the behaviors you can expect to see from us. Every time.

Pam holding a heart

We write it down

Writing things down helps to preserve and share our thoughts, leads to smarter work and more scalable growth.

We are professionals

We treat each other the same way we treat our customers: with respect.

We think slow

Slow, academic, logical, calculating, conscious, even “boring” contemplation leads to better decisions.

We are drivers, not passengers

Drivers take control, responsibility and influence outcomes.

We are builders

Ideas themselves are useless. Building something new starts with unglamorous, tedious work that sets the foundation for scale later.

We lift each other up

We never elevate ourselves at someone’s expense.

We assume the principle of charity

When communication is brief and something is unclear, we assume that the other person is just as smart as we are, and is acting in good faith.

We value each other’s time

We put the extra effort into making it easy for others to work with us. We respect being “in the zone” and understand the cost of context shifting.
