About Brim

Brim is a venture-funded, seed-stage startup. We are currently a small and focused team, building our product foundations and working with early customers.

Our founder Steve McCanne created pcap and bpf, and co-authored tcpdump in the early 1990s. At that time, he was office mates with Vern Paxson, the creator of Zeek, who used pcap as the foundation for Zeek. Steve has founded several startups including Riverbed Technology, which he took public after 4 years and grew it to over 2000 employees.

If you’d like to see how our team communicates and writes software, take a look at our GitHub repos:
