Molly Wojcik | November 26, 2018 | Agile, Culture

The Agile methodology was pioneered as an innovative approach to software development, but it can be effectively deployed across many areas. At Section, we choose to apply the Agile methodology as a framework across our entire organizational structure, from software development to customer engineering to marketing and sales.

Hello from Matt

Matt Wickman | October 11, 2018 | Culture

Today is the middle of my third week with section.io as a platform engineer, and it’s been a great ride so far! This is a company that lives on the bleeding edge of technology AND the internet that I’m very excited to join. I’ve worked on web technology from e-commerce to mobile applications, but this is the first time that I get to work full-time on a product that is targeted at other developers. I know we’re a tough and demanding audience, but I’m excited for the challenge and the opportunity to give back to the developer community by making the internet better! Going forward I’m going to be focusing on learning, delivering the most powerful edge platform available, and driving innovation for section.io!

Hello from Molly

Molly Wojcik | September 04, 2018 | Culture

Today is my first day as Marketing Director at section.io, and I’m eager for the opportunities ahead! What drew me to this company is the “for engineers, by engineers” mindset that carries through every vein of the organization. In all of my conversations with the team here, it’s glaringly apparent that our clients - software engineers - are at the center of everything we do. From product development to client success, section.io is on a mission to make work easier for engineers.

Hello from Gary

Gary Ritzer | August 28, 2018 | Culture

Yesterday was my first day at section.io, and I am looking forward to many more. I have worked as a lead software developer and architect for the past 26 years across several industries - most recently at F5 Networks on their cloud enablement effort for their BIG-IP product. I have worked at companies both large and small, but certainly prefer working at smaller companies on a closely-knit team. Once I learned more about section.io I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of their team and help the platform reach its full potential.

Bjoern Nordmann | August 13, 2018 | Culture

A few hours ago, I started my first day at section.io as a full time employee in the role of VP Commercials and I couldn’t be more excited to join this team. Over the past few weeks I had the pleasure of working with Stewart and Dan to understand the section.io Go-To-Market strategy and value proposition for our clients better. Understanding what section.io has already accomplished, and the vision of Stewart and Dan going forward, really convinced me about the opportunity for success.

Mani Batra | August 06, 2018 | Culture

I start today at section.io as a Customer Support Engineer and am very excited to take on customer and platform challenges. I look at this as an opportunity to have a meaningful impact on the web performance side of things by helping customers optimize their web products and provide a better experience for their end users. Having built and launched a number of customer-facing applications I see this as an amazing opportunity to help customers with their pain points and make the internet a better place.

Hello from Aaron

Aaron Schreck | February 20, 2018 | Culture

I am extremely excited to join the section.io team in its mission to empower companies to deliver performant and scalable web content. As a former middle school math teacher, I understand what it’s like to fight with slow and unresponsive technology in a hectic workplace setting, and I look forward to partnering with section.io to create a streamlined, painless technological experience for your customers. If technology is not making our lives easier, less stressful, and more productive, then it is not doing its job.

The section.io Manifesto

Daniel Bartholomew | April 26, 2017 | CDNs 101, Culture

In 2005 Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux, began working on a version control system that would soon revolutionize the way developers collaborated. Realizing that proprietary source control management systems were not sufficient to achieve what Torvalds needed, he decided to design his own that would meet his needs.

Magento Imagine 2017

Stewart McGrath | April 10, 2017 | Culture, Magento

Magento Imagine comes but once a year, and this year we were back in Las Vegas. While I have discovered that you can scratch the surface of many and various “shiny surfaces” in Las Vegas and find a slightly harsher reality, when you scratch the surface of Magento, you find the real heart; the community.

Hello from CJ

CJ Brewer | January 09, 2017 | Culture

Today I embark on a new journey with section.io who empower developers to increase scalability and improve performance for their web applications. Having started my own company and developed the product from the ground up, I understand the importance of building up your CDN alongside your application and section.io allows you to do just that! The product for my previous company was a two-sided marketplace, and we had some pretty angry customers when our content was not being delivered in a timely fashion. In fact, we ended up losing those customers.

How We Manage Remote Work and International Teams

Roxana Elliott | December 21, 2016 | Culture

When I first started at section.io, which is located in the heart of Boulder, Colorado, I got a lot of questions about my commute and how I was dealing with it. This is because I live in Denver, about 30 miles south of Boulder and connected by one major highway that can get very congested.

Adapting section.io to Colorado Life

Stewart McGrath | September 09, 2016 | Culture

A New Corporate Objective A few months ago, my co founder and CTO, Dan, declared a need to climb Longs Peak here in Colorado. Why? “because it’s there” (that classic Mountain climbers’ cry). It turns out that during his morning drive into our Boulder office from Lousiville, every day since we moved to Colorado from Australia, Longs was standing tall and taunting on his skyline.

My section.io anniversary

Jason Stangroome | June 10, 2016 | Culture

As at today I’ve been working with section.io for two years. When I joined the company it provided a fully-managed service to its clients. For many this was the ideal arrangement: by leaving web performance to the people with the skills and the tools our customers were free to focus on building new features.

Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches

Glenn Slaven | June 03, 2016 | Culture

At the beginning of 2015 my family realised that living in Sydney, even out in Western Sydney as we were, wasn’t working for us. Too much stress, too much traffic & not enough space. I had been working from home for over a year at that point. My wife & I had talked about getting out of Dodge for years, and we decided that if we didn’t want to regret never trying it we had to do it now.

Moving an Australian tech company to the US

Stewart McGrath | May 18, 2016 | Culture

Nearly 12 months ago our company started the journey to move our company’s head office to the US. This post is to provide a quick outline on some of the key items we have tackled along the way. I hope it helps other Aussie companies find their way to a broader market if it makes as much sense for them as it has for section.io.
