About Us

At Section, we’re on a mission to improve the Internet by empowering web engineers to build and deliver better applications. Our industry-leading Edge as a Service (EaaS) technologies give engineers the flexibility and control to run any workload, anywhere, underpinned by modern DevOps principles.

The demand for better, faster user experiences, low tolerance for security breaches of personal data, and surging bandwidth costs are pushing more compute to “the edge”. Performance-oriented engineering teams are challenged with optimizing compute resources in these increasingly distributed systems and require tooling that gives them full control over configuration and deployment of workloads along the edge continuum. Section’s Edge as a Service has been specifically designed to simplify and accelerate edge adoption to deliver more performant, secure, and scalable applications.

Section is headquartered in Colorado, and our team is located across the U.S. and Australia. We’re backed by a group of top-shelf Venture Capital firms led by the Foundry Group. We are growing quickly and have been recognized by industry analysts and peers as a leader in the emerging edge compute landscape.

At Section, we value team diversity. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or any other applicable legally protected characteristics in the location in which the candidate is applying.
