About StreamLocator

We started our company with the belief that the internet should be free of geographic borders that restrict access to the content people want to watch. We solve this problem with technology that is delivered through easy-to-use tools.

We are a small, experienced team who enjoy working with each other. Conversations are often about exploration and the exchange of ideas. Joining our team means valuing and being part of these conversations. This is a startup and successful team members are independent, resourceful and creative, who thrive in a more unstructured environment with little hand holding. We measure results instead of effort, we value the ability to have a flexible schedule and be in control of your own time.
