Run compute-intensive apps in a browser

We are a platform for high-performance browser-based applications. We make it easier for developers to deploy apps that give every user a dedicated backend. This is a system design that apps like Figma and GitHub codespaces use, but it's currently difficult for others to replicate it. We make it as easy as deploying a traditional web server.

Paul Butler

I'm a technical founder building Drifting in Space. My career has straddled the line between engineering and data science, with stints at Google as a software engineer on search, Two Sigma as a quantitative analyst, and botnet detection at an adtech startup. I'm originally from Halifax, Canada, currently based in Brooklyn, and love running, sailing, and exploring new cities.
