An IOT platform for Modern Development Teams

We care deeply about the IoT developer’s experience. Our mission is to make it faster and easier for developers to create thoughtful connected products.

Who we are

Our globally distributed team all have one thing in common: we love connecting “sand” (silicon) to the internet. Throughout our careers we’ve all gone through the painful steps of trying to connect sensors to the web. In fact, we’ve “built Golioth” at almost every company we’ve worked for–and it’s been just as painful every time. So we built Golioth to take away the pain of building connected devices by fixing the IoT developer experience, and making IoT data and experiences universally accessible and useful.


Our team is composed of leaders from various industries who have experience with both IoT and development.
