Hello, we're Packet :-)

We are passionate about building a better Internet.

At Packet, we're out to Build a Better Internet™ by helping to make infrastructure a competitive advantage for the leading companies of the world.

Our approach? It's simple really: we handle the muck of automating and lifecycling infrastructure no matter what it is, where it lives, or who owns it. This means you can inject your opinion into the entire stack, without having to do it all yourself.

If our approach is flexible, our values are quite firm: we believe in doing well by doing good, in the importance of open source and the value of healthy ecosystems, and that infrastructure is a craft (not a commodity). Oh, and robots - gotta have robots!

  • We are driven, ambitious people who find creative solutions to the really hard problems.
  • We are effective at getting things done the right way.  Don't just do it - do it well!
  • We are flat-out inspired to lead the "next wave" of our industry. Robot driven datacenters.  :)
