Over the last week, I’ve come to really appreciate Bitwarden’s capabilities in a solid password manager. However, before I invest in a password manager, I like to know some things about the company. I love transparency in a company - not just open source, but who are these people? How did they come up with the idea of starting the company? I read in one location (don’t remember where) that they have a few locations internationally, as well as Santa Barbara, CA. How many employees do they have? What’s the working environment like at the company? What are their goals? Are they committed to creating the best product possible, or are they just looking to get a good product to market, and be satisfied with the status quo? Are they constantly adjusting, tweaking, implementing new ideas?
I found this information in another thread, referencing LinkedIn:
Bitwarden: Computer Software, Headquartered in Santa Barbara, CA
Open source password management solutions for individuals, teams, and business organizations.
Company size: 11-50 employees
Type: Privately Held
Specialties: Password Management, Identity Management, and Secret Management
Locations: Primary N. Calle Cesar ChavezSuite 102Santa Barbara, CA 93103, US
So, what does “Company size: 11-50 Employees” mean? 11-50??? I was under the impression the company was a little larger. I looked at their Career listing, and unless it’s old, they currently have five positions open.
Can anyone shed any more light into Bitwarden? I appreciate open source, but I wish the company itself was more open. Thanks in advance!
