Where We’re Headed

We believe the internet is our most important technology. How it functions or fails can have drastic impact on people's lives and their capabilities.

We are passionately focused on creating the world's foremost research, development, and deployment lab for network protocols so that we can upgrade the internet.

Our first endeavor is to drastically improve the architecture of the internet by changing how people store, address, and transmit data. It's one of many protocols we will develop in order to fundamentally improve computing for humanity.

To learn more about our vision for the company, read Juan Benet's blog post PROTOCOL LABS: CREATING NEW NETWORKS.

People and Locations

Just like the internet itself, we are a fully distributed team spread across the globe. We don’t let geography or borders define us -- we want to work with talented and intellectually curious people of diverse backgrounds and different perspectives. If you align passionately with our mission, we want to talk to you, no matter whether you're in Tokyo or Timbuktu.
