About Proxy

Proxy is on a mission to create a unique signal for every person on the planet.

In the process, we're creating a new industry around personalization and automation by building technologies that augment people and seamlessly represent their identity, preferences, context and physical presence to all things in the physical world.

We believe this vision is best achieved through iteration and progressive validation so our journey towards ubiquity begins at the door, by transforming the way you access the office every day - using just your Proxy.

Ultimately, we're on a path to build something people didn't know they wanted, but once experienced, will never want to live without -- and we are looking forward to working with those who share our same obsession to fundamentally change the way we experience the world around us.
