About TunnelBear

Simple Privacy for Everyone

We think the Internet is a much better place when everyone can browse privately, and browse the same Internet as everyone else. TunnelBear wants to bring the benefits of privacy to everyone with our incredibly simple apps.

Meet the Bears

Since Cofounding TunnelBear, I've personally supervised the amount of bears and puns in every product. With plenty of hard work, our team has introduced online privacy to millions of people around the world. Previously I managed products at Microsoft and a mobile security startup.

Cofounder of TunnelBear. I architect the TunnelBear tunnels. Previously I built and sold a mobile application company called CC Apps. I've also worked at RIM, Goldman Sachs and studied Math at Cambridge.

Partner at TunnelBear. While my true love is developing for anything Apple, at TunnelBear I work on just about everything. Previously, I cofounded another company (CatPig Studios) and lead development at Wave Accounting among other startups. I studied Computer Science at Waterloo.

Designer at TunnelBear. I draw lots and lots of bears. Previously, I've designed pretty much everything across print, web and mobile design for companies and agencies on brands such as Toyota and Lexus.

Developer at TunnelBear. When I'm not dominating the office Ping Pong table, I ship beautiful apps. So if you see an animated bear that perfectly fits your screen walking, roaring and protecting your privacy - that's my work. I also have a masters in Computer Science.

Marketing and Bear Ops. When I'm not coming up with new bear puns, I spend my time cooking and eating delicious food.

Having been possessed by the evil lord beardemort, I've been forced to wear a toque to conceal his noseless face on the back of my fuzzy head. Bear of all trades, I work predominately on the backend, making sure our bears get the food they need. I studied Software Engineering at Waterloo.

Marketing bear, resident boy band enthusiast and Nerf battle instigator. Seemingly immune to computer screen glare, I'm the only bear in the den that you'll find working next to a sunny window.

Droid bear. Welcomed in off of the streets, I came in as a young, ambitious cub and was nursed into a wild and dangerous bear. Since starting here, I've come to love board games, ping pong, and privacy. Studied Computer Engineering at Waterloo.

iDevelobear. Waterloo Computer Engineering and one of the bear trainers in the cave. I mostly spend my time providing digital habitats for all TunnelBears and BlockBears on iOS and macOS.

Designer at TunnelBear. Born and raised in the Russian Far East. Early in life developed a deep-seated aversion to poorly designed things. Couldn't let it go ever since. Outside of the bear cave, I'm an avid non-fiction reader and language learner.

Web Developer at TunnelBear. I spend most of my time tinkering with JavaScript and optimizing the website. When I'm not coding I'm most often seen with a camera in hand. An avid traveller and street photographer, I'm always rushing off to photograph some new corner of the world.

Five years behind UW Computer Engineering bars has made me gruff, tough, and hardy. The experience has instilled in me a love for the back-end development and big data, and the ability to cram any subject in a single night. Outside the cave, I love to eat great food, and hope to someday own seventeen cats and fifteen dogs.

Windows developer at TunnelBear. In the summer I enjoy going on canoe camping trips and relaxing at the cottage. When I'm not startling unsuspecting campers, you can find me exploring new places and foods, playing volleyball, or losing to Paddle Bear at ping pong. I studied Software Engineering at Waterloo.

Operations Manager bear. I'm the money spender and a nerd for numbers and processes. I enjoy strength exercise in many forms in the north for warmth and awesomeness. I'm an inclusive bear that wants all bears to be feel part of the sleuth.

Support Bear at TunnelBear. When I'm not off saving the galaxy from evil emperors and Sith lords, I'm offering support to my fellow bears! Occasionally I work on film sets, and I am an avid animator and gamer (and obviously a huge Star Wars fan). “May the bear be with you!”

Accessibility advocate and all-year camping enthusiast who dreams of meeting real polar bears in the Arctic. Happiest when paddling a canoe.

iOS developer who seeks the ultimate power for code perfection. Crushes bugs with no mercy. Master of the UI. Destroyer of snacks.

When I'm not headhunting new talent for the Sleuth, I'm in the cave dreaming up our next HR initiative. I make sure all the Bears have what they need to stay engaged & motivated, which typically requires a LOT of snacks.

No one cared who I was until I put on the mask. Now I fight against evil pixels and strike terror in the heart of poor design. When the mask comes off, you can find me with a camera in one hand and a book in the other.

I'm a hybrid Copywriter/Marketing Bear. I've written copy for the BBC, BBC Worldwide and too many FMCPG brands to count. When I'm not writing about technology, food or television, I write TV scripts, film scripts and songs.

I'm from England, but I think tea is overrated. You can find me doing support for the Bears.

Neighhhh. You can find me galloping around the pastures of TunnelBear's frontend.

Mac/iOS developer at TunnelBear who likes gadgets! I'm always ready to try new toys and experiences. When I'm not riding around the city with my electric skateboard, I'm off learning how to sail or a new language.

Windows Developer at TunnelBear. Software developer by day, martial arts practitioner by night. In the summer I love being out in the wild on canoeing and hiking trips. In the winter I can usually be found rocking the hills (or eating snow) on my skis.

iOS Develobear. I eat bugs for breakfast. In my off time I play with electronics projects, synthesizers, and the occasional indie game.

I do all things TunnelBear development, but mostly I just lose at chess to Shutter Bear. When I'm not tinkering with the TunnelBear apps you can find me rollerblading across Toronto at unsafe speeds.

I'm a DevOps Bear who can only be activated by a Bear environment.

DevOps Bear who likes to play with infrastructure fires.

When I'm not finding the perfect GIF to sign off your next support ticket, you can find me making costumes, playing Magic: the Gathering, or showing people pictures of my dog.

When not scratching my back and shoulders on trees, you can find me singing the Bare Necessities, and eatings bugs... virtual bugs that is.

Marketing and Growth at TunnelBear. Trying to put honey on the table. Sorry about all the surveys.

That's not just a twinkle in my eye that you see - I'm covered in sparkles! I'm not sure where I picked them up, but it's okay because they match my positive attitude and sparkling personality. I use this sparkle to help TunnelBear customers all over the world!

Moved from Japan to the Cave, where I help people get their Bears back into their tunnels. I'm into weird, fake-sounding genres of music and anime.

Designer Bear who makes bears do bear things. When I'm not thinking about bears, you'll catch me drawing, enjoying good food, or becoming a Pokémon master.

Always putting a lot of emphasis on living a healthy bear life! I'm constantly on the lookout for the best honey, berries and salmon, I try to keep active through bear-yoga and lifting logs and I never sacrifice my beauty-hibernation. At the cave you'll find me breathing all things Windows.

iOS Developer at TunnelBear. Writing quality code takes a lot of energy, so I've been hibernating on and off since 1993. I have a deep love for nature, and scuba diving is my favorite activity of all time.

Android Bear who loves clean code and great UX. When I'm not busy preventing the One Ring from falling into the wrong hands, I can be found cycling around the city or with my nose in a book

A marketing bear who lives and breathes everything digital and marketing. I'm passionate about building communities, traveling, hiking and treks, and storytelling. In my spare time, you can find me at the Brampton Cricket Club, various trails across Ontario or jamming out to musicians ranging from Drake to Miguel.

Marketing Bear who likes to build stuff. Trained as a Mechanical Engibear, I am always working on multiple ideas at a time; conceiving, building, and testing ways to manufacture that sweet sweet honey. I play the piano when no one is looking; although having paws instead of hands make things difficult.

Product guy who loves to work with McAfee, while making sure TunnelBear hits its objective.

GodzillaBear emerges. My deep slumber was broken by news that a server is storing personally identifiable information on users. Drop your tables, hash your passwords, and encrypt your hard drives. And most of all - pray that GodzillaBear doesn't find his way to your datacentre.

A bear who's tough on censorship but big on community organizing.

Serious about data, security, and privacy for our various backend systems. When I'm not coding away, I enjoy empowering others to succeed and expressing myself through a playful emoji, gif, meme, or comic!

A marketing bear with a sweet tooth for growing TunnelBear love and is not afraid to chomp down on censorship and privacy violations. When I'm not nom nom-ing away at my desk, you can find me trying out new restaurants, sports and activities around the city.

Data science bear who only eats her pancakes with real Canadian maple syrup. When I'm not at the cave, I enjoy crocheting hats for my cats and seeing rock bears live in concert.

By day, I am an Android develo-bear who enjoys all things Java, Kotlin and computer security. By weekend, you can find me out on a lake fishing or inside justifying why I haven't caught any fish yet.

A bear who subsists on the sheer value of $4.00 sandwiches. No other meal can beat the cost/taste/size value of a large cold cut banh mi (extra spicy).

Sazabear's counterattack will not stop until all bugs have been eliminated.

I am always learning, that is how I maintain my cub status! I am sweet and I love sugar and sprinkles. Always doing everything in my "paw"er to support every bear that reaches out!

My name is Gump… Gump Bear. One day I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the river, and when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of Bear Country. I figured, since I'd run this far, maybe I'd just run across the Continent while helping fellow Bears!
