About us

Jetstack helps businesses to build and operate modern Cloud Native infrastructure with Kubernetes. Our goal is to improve the experience for those building these systems. We do this through training and consulting, as well as products and open source tooling. Jetstack is the team behind cert-manager, the de facto open source solution for Cloud Native certificate management. It is downloaded more than a million times a day. In 2020, Jetstack was acquired by the US-based security company Venafi with a joint vision of helping engineers move quickly and securely.

What employees say

"I was prepared for the learning curve but the company culture took me by surprise. The importance placed around autonomy, employee engagement, and mental well-being was something I'd never seen before. It took a little time for me to adapt to this new way of working. I was used to being micro-managed and working with a top-down approach, management makes decisions and engineers follow. This is not the Jetstack way. At Jetstack everyone has a voice, everyone's input is valid and appreciated" - Chance Whittaker

What inspires us

Jetstack has been contributing to the Kubernetes ecosystem almost since its inception and is now a visible force at cloud native events and meetups. We offer the opportunity to work with emerging technologies and solve real problems for developers.

Curiosity and experimentation are at the core of Jetstack and led to the creation of cert-manager, one of the most widely used open-source products out there.
