Wire: About Us - Who we are, Our mission, The team, Work with Us

Vision: Work Anywhere. Stay Secure.

Wire provides secure communication and collaboration solutions, based on edge computing and zero trust architecture. It is used by privacy-focused enterprises and governments, including five of the world’s G7 governments, to protect their mission-critical information and enable smooth collaboration. We empower organizations to take full control of their data and protect digital assets from cyber-attacks and data privacy violations. All messaging within Wire is subject to end-to-end encryption, meaning no one – not even Wire – can access your communications. Wire is 100% open source with its source code available on GitHub. Independently audited, it is ISO, CCPA, GDPR, and SOX-compliant.

Founded in 2012 by some of the founders of Skype, Wire originally aimed at protecting personal users communications and data from cyber attacks. Thanks to its strong privacy laws, Wire was originally headquartered in Zug, Switzerland. Recognizing the growing need for secure communications within organizations, Wire moved its focus to the B2B and B2G space in 2017.

Who We Are

Our Office Locations

Wire is operating from three office locations:

Our headquarters in Berlin, Germany

Rosenthaler Straße 41, 10178 Berlin, Germany

Our office in Zug, Switzerland

Untermüli 9, 6300 Zug, Switzerland

Our representative office in San Francisco, USA

650 California Street, CA 94108 San Francisco, USA

Our inhouse developed product builds the perfect platform to connect remotely. For a few selected key roles around the globe, we’re open to a remote-only way of working while we all think that being able to see each other in the office builds an elementary aspect of Wire’s culture.

Our Unique Hybrid Working Model

Wire is building a communication platform to connect ad-hoc and individually as well as in large group conferences – our teams are using all product functions daily. While we love to come together as a team, facilitate in-person alignments and hold up to our unique company culture, we also reacted to the new way of working after the pandemic. We have established audited health and safety measures to allow all team members to return to our offices. We’re building the next generation of collaboration, so it’s only logical that we have introduced a hybrid working model:

Wherever You Are: Based on individual preferences and operational needs, every team member is free to choose a work location which suits their needs. The most popular modul is a reasonable mix of a few days working from the office and seeing your colleagues while having the opportunity and equipment to work from home as well to get your heads down on concentration challenges.

As Flexible As You Need: Diverse working hour models and time zone differences are no challenge for us. Who if not us? Wire is building the product to connect no matter where and when.

As Inclusive As Possible: We’re all individuals and respect each other with all of our different facets of how we prefer to work together. Read more about Wire’s diversity and inclusion approach in our strategic alignment.
