Deno makes programming easy. We make it possible to use JavaScript outside of the browser to build all types of software. Our free open source runtime is one of the most popular projects on Github. Our business is hosting JavaScript servers at the edge with the Deno Deploy serverless runtime. Try it out — you ought to be able to deploy a server world-wide in less than 5 minutes.

About the company

Deno is founded by the same engineers who built Node.js, the JavaScript runtime used by millions of developers and used by nearly all websites in one form or another. Deno is a continuation of the ideas in Node; a modern take on server-side JavaScript development. The open source project has already secured itself among the ranks of the most popular projects on GitHub.

Our commercial product is cloud service for hosting JavaScript servers. It is one of just a handful of implementations of serverless at edge in existence. By repurposing web browser technology for server software, we aim to accelerate a new generation of extreme low-latency edge applications.

We are fully remote with employees all over the world. Don't assume this means we're not a real company; our investors include Sequoia Capital, Nat Friedman, Netlify, and Wordpress.
