Coder is dedicated to keeping developers in flow

How It Started

Coder’s three co-founders — Ammar Bandukwala, Kyle Carberry, and John Andrew Entwistle — first met online while in high school. The three were soon collaborating to build and monetize Minecraft plugins and servers, eventually moving on to a series of other projects, some successful, some not.

Frustrated by the complexities of collaborating remotely on software development, after graduation Ammar, Kyle, and John Andrew moved to Austin and started Coder to create the development tools they wish had been available for them. The trio rented a building they nicknamed “The Shack,” hired a couple of developers, and got to work.

Today

With investments from major VC firms, Coder is now a remote-first company with products used by many of the world’s largest enterprises. Coder provides an enterprise platform and open source tools that make it easier than ever to configure, secure, and manage software development environments.

Leave hardware limitations behind and welcome accelerated code execution, providing you and your developers with unmatched efficiency and elevated productivity. This enables your organization to innovate rapidly and maintain a competitive edge.
