Boundary is currently working fully remotely. When government guidelines allow, we will once again move into office space. We expect that each member of the team spends one day a month in the office for all-hands meetings, with the rest of the month being flexible (you can choose to work from home or in the office).

Boundary technologies was founded in 2018 by technology entrepreneurs Robin Knox and Paul Walton in the response to a need for a cost effective and intelligent intruder alarm system. Previously, the two founders built and sold Edinburgh based software company intelligentpos to iZettle which was later acquired by PayPal.

It is important to Robin and Paul that, just like their previous company, Boundary is a fun place to work where everyone’s input is respected and valued. The casual working environment incorporates open channels of communication and operates in an extremely agile fashion with important decisions being made daily.
