Amazing Company (Free Open Source Software) 少し驚いた会社(無料のソフトウエア)


クラウド上でVisual Codeを使うことができるソフトウエアを、Coderというベンチャー企業がリリースしてる。調べてみると、設立から1年ぐらいだが、従業員は少なくとも15人ぐらいはいる。この会社の募集要件は、Doker, Kubemetes, Golang, TypeScriptが使えることで、学歴は不問、年俸は800万円ぐらい、ランチつきだそうである。 だから、運営には、数億円ぐらいは必要である。






It is just over a year since we hired our first full-time employee, but coder has been a long time in the making. I met my co-founders when I was 13 running a small game server company. When I needed an extra set of hands, I did what any aspiring tech executive would do — I googled “plugin engineer”.


There we were, a 13-year-old plugin engineer in Saskatoon Canada, a 12-year-old systems architect in Alabama, and a 13-year-old in New York filling our days with twelve hour Skype calls — always working toward “the next big thing”. Over the next several years we evolved from building game servers to building DDOS mitigation platforms, 1M+ monthly visitor websites, and peer-to-peer file-sharing companies.


Right after high school, we set out to build Coder. We packed our things, left our hometowns, and moved into a tin shack in Austin, Texas to build our new company side-by-side.

アルファ版が公開されてから約2か月が経ち、125か国で世界中のコーダーを試している膨大な数の人々に勇気づけられ、刺激を受け、謙虚になりました。フォーチュン50社のエンジニアがすべてCoder を使用しており、ユースケースの範囲と可能性は信じられません。

It’s been about two months since our public alpha release, and we’ve been encouraged, inspired and humbled by the enormous number of people trying out coder globally across 125 countries… We have students analyzing the human genome, CEOs coding on their chromebooks, and engineers inside of fortune 50 companies, all using Coder — the scope of use cases and possibilities are incredible.


Imagine a world where it no longer matters the kind of hardware you have, where an internet connection allows you to harness 30x the resources of a brand new MacBook… Imagine servers powering the tools we love and have contributed to. We’re well on our way to making it all a reality and truly look forward to working together to shape Coder.
