We started this company in 2009 as engineers hailing from Berlin & Amsterdam.
Five years later, we’ve released a ton of open source software and are dept-free, profitable, and still privately owned.
Thousands of automated system tests, integration tests and visual diffs have allowed us to take two steps forward while keeping all running smoothly.
Our scaling algorithm and custom Amazon EC2 agreements allow us to spin up 500 machines at once, ready to start encoding in 3 minutes in datacenters spread across the US and Europe. You can set a continental preference, or let us decide what performs best based upon the location of your end users.
We often blog about all of this, too.
Transloadit is brought to you by a small team of fulltime developers, and supported by a network of befriended experts and freelancers. Please meet our team in order of appearance:

His scalability expertise was put to good use in the construction of Transloadit’s highly available platform. Kevin continues to improve our backend as we expand, and also loves to engage with product development and innovation. If you’re into that sort of thing, check out his blog where he likes to muse about coding and distributed systems.
