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 Compute Platform gives 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 Compute Platform has been specifically designed to accelerate, scale and secure applications with the complete development lifecycle in mind.

Section was founded in Sydney, Australia in 2012. Our headquarters is based 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.

We’re a team of passionate technology professionals who support, push and celebrate each other while working to solve complex challenges, learn new skills, and become better engineers and people. We hire smart, talented, dedicated people and provide competitive compensation, generous stock options, flexible workplace and schedule, and many other benefits to foster a positive work environment. Come join us!
