Meet the team that builds

Last week found a number of us flying out to Toronto for what we called RickConf (I swear I didn’t name it!). The weather did its best to try to get in our way as the ice storm caused some of us to arrive a day later than expected. We all made it though, and I think we all took turns assuring the Californians that this weather is not normal.

RickConf was an opportunity for everyone that works on to get together, hang out, and prototype some ideas for the future. 1Password is a remote company, so this is one of the few times per year where the whole team gets together. We think that it’s incredibly important that we get to know each other beyond the avatars we have on Slack.

I’d like to introduce you to the team, and help put faces to names you may have seen when emailing in with questions.

From left to right we have Jiannine, Jasper, Jacob, Betty, Rob, Meek, Brett, Isha, Connor, Matt, and finally myself. Not pictured here are Shiner and Roustem who are an absolutely critical part of our team, and spent the week with us as well.

Our team is responsible for the service which includes:

  • The server app that stores all of your encrypted secrets and coordinates the syncing of that data across all of your apps.
  • The web app that allows you to manage your account as well as view and edit the contents of your vaults.
  • The command-line utility that provides a way to programmatically interact with your account.
  • And finally the SCIM bridge that allows you to connect an identity provider like Azure Active Directory to your account for automated user provisioning and deprovisioning.

Last week we prototyped some new ideas for each of those four projects. I won’t go into what those were, but I’m super excited for us to polish up that code and get it into your hands.

      I’m sorry for the beta troubles, Michael! Without knowing more specifics about what has gone wrong, though, it’s difficult to give you any meaningful direction. We have a dedicated team of folks working with our 1Password 7 beta testers, so the best thing to do is to send an e-mail describing what went wrong in as much detail as possible to and they’ll be able to help you get things up and running again. 🙂

    Keep up the great work there. Great Products! I have looked at other products and just keep going back to saying this is the best one out there and keeps getting better! All of you are awesome. Enjoy the blogs, newsletters and updates. Feels like a family of great people working cohesively on the same mission and vision.

      Thanks so much for your kind words, Carl. 💙 We definitely are a like a family and really love what we do and are probably just as excited to share cool new things we built with you as you are to use them. We don’t often get a chance to work together in the same room since we’re spread across the globe and meetings like this are much like family reunions. I was jealous I wasn’t there for RickConf, but loved seeing all the photos the team shared with us. Matt seemed to be making a goofy face in all of them, which was good for a group chuckle. 😉

      Of course, we consider our customers part of the family, too, so that this feeling comes through to you is really great to hear. Of course, we don’t expect you to drop by for Thanksgiving (I wouldn’t recommend my cooking anyway), but I’m glad you enjoy following along in your e-mail and on this blog and hope it helps you keep in touch. 🙂
