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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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!

Cinema-loving bear single-handedly holding down the front end at TunnelBear (the other hand is stuck in a honey pot). When I'm not taking care of our website cubs, I can be found watching "Vertigo" for the 20th time, cycling around the city, or buried under a plate of lasagna.

Improvising and adapting code to overcome censorship. Ask me about Python, hiking, and photography.

When I'm not tending to the plants and databases, you can probably find me at an electronics bench or setting up an art installation. I like playing music, cycling long distances, and plants.

When I'm not clawing away infrastructure issues, I'm indulging my craving for books! My creative side helps me to think "outside the cave" when working on problems. One day I hope to create a bear-venturous book of my own!

This bear loves to kick the ball. In his next life, he'll probably be a soccer superstar. In this life, he's resigned to clawing and digging away at infrastructure dirt. This bear is happy when all servers are kicking.
