Overview

Our Story

Warpwire has always been flexible. Back in 2013, we were a live-event streaming company. But when our friends in educational technology expressed their frustration with the limits of video delivery in the classroom, we realized that the software we were already building could be used to solve their problems.

We used our decades of combined experience with educational technology to move from live-events to video streaming designed specifically for educators. We built a scalable, secure, and above all easy-to-use platform that would fit in with instructors' and instructional designers' existing workflows.

Then, and now, our goal remains the same: create the most flexible, powerful, and intuitive pieceĀ of technology to help our clients securely host and deliver media to their communities.

It's not a complicated philosophy. Real people have real problems with technology, and we want to solve them. We work to create software without the limitations found in other systems, to replace expensive and overwrought solutions with simple tools that meet our clients' needs. Our development roadmap is driven by client feedback. Feedback makes Warpwire a better product. You are the ones educating: you know what you need.

At Warpwire, we're developers first. We're entirely self-funded and independent. Without the pressure to hit sales targets set by a board of investors, we get to solve real problems and build reliable software. This means you never have to worry about who we serve, because it will always be you. Our team works every day to represent our core principles - both in what we make and how we act.

Warpwire is based in Durham, North Carolina.

Our Core Principles

Simplicity

We value straightforwardness, both in our application and our work. We tackle the complicated problems so our clients don't have to.

Transparency

We have nothing to hide, so we don't. We believe in openness and honesty, both with customers and co-workers.

Quality

We are a team of perfectionists. We would never want to deliver a product that is less than perfect to anyone using it, so you can be confident in its performance.

Flexibility

We know that one size doesn't fit all. We build flexible software and believe in flexible work schedules. At Warpwire, being adaptable is one of our biggest assets.

Open Communication

We don't talk at anyone. We talk with everyone. Everything at Warpwire is a conversation – from discussions with clients about pricing to working through a problem with your co-worker.
