The team behind Wire.

Wire’s vision is to provide secure messaging for everyone. Businesses and other organisations can be confident their communication is secure from prying eyes. And friends and family can talk freely without sacrificing their privacy.

Building with experience

We are a European company with over 50 employees from 23 nationalities and a wide range of backgrounds. Our people have previously worked at companies like Skype, IBM, Telio, Cisco, Fjord, SoundCloud, and Gameloft.

Many in our team worked at Skype in the early days, helping to change the telecom landscape, and contributing to real-time communication technologies that became WebRTC — which now powers tools used daily by hundreds of millions of people.

Building on that foundation, we’re ready to revolutionize secure messaging.
