We founded BoxBoat in 2016 as a remote-first company. Since then, we've learned a lot about how to operate in a fully remote capacity, including what works well and what doesn't. One of the things that we've learned is the importance of maintaining a healthy work-life balance for all team members.

| Rancher Kubernetes
We founded BoxBoat Technologies in 2016 to help enable organizations with container technologies and DevSecOps processes. Back then, there were many different container orchestration technologies.

As the industry coalesced around Kubernetes, its been great for enterprises because now there is a gold standard for container orchestration. The industry continues to mature, and we've seen our enterprise customers rapidly adopt cloud native technologies.
