    About Us

    We hire wonderful people who want to help us with our mission. We promote the ideas of mastery, autonomy and purpose - contributing to interesting projects with a meaningful outcome.

    Pusher’s real time APIs power applications around the world across various industries. When you see an in-app chat, a collaborative text editor, or anything else that updates instantly—it could be us shifting events behind the scenes. We want to improve the lives of other developers by solving hard problems for them, and by freeing them from operating and maintaining their own infrastructure. We’re passionate about developer experience and making our APIs as easy to use as we can.

    We strongly believe in the importance of diversity and inclusion. They not only provide a better working environment but also improve the quality of our services. We welcome people of different nationalities, backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives.

    We are here to help our customers build delightful applications. By solving significant engineering challenges and packaging them into easy to use APIs, we let developers focus on making their users happy.

    We put emphasis on collaboration between people and teams. Everyone is on the same mission, so sharing work helps us reach our goals faster. Throwing problems over the wall and pointing fingers at each other is not our style.

    We strive for transparency. Keeping everyone well-informed is crucial for building trust, efficiency and satisfaction at work.

    To give you a sense of our scale:

    • Pusher serves 250,000 developers across 170 countries,
    • We handle several millions of concurrent connections,
    • Our customers have published over 10 trillion messages via Channels.
