Hi, We’re Esper

Esper goes way beyond MDM to create a complete toolchain for Android DevOps. We deliver operational excellence and a stable, scalable infrastructure to help you quickly deploy your experiences at scale.

Esper’s business is about helping you take control and automate the entire Android life cycle so you can focus your team on competing where it matters most.

Here’s Our Story

How Esper Got Started

Android has become the most popular platform for IoT devices which require a user experience. The latest generation of connected devices is all run on Android, from smart bikes to mobile point-of-sale and restaurant kiosks.
It’s crystal clear why enterprises choose Android. It’s free, open-source, comprehensive, and there’s broad support. What’s less clear, however, is how enterprises should manage this latest generation of endpoints. Most MDM solutions lack basic visibility into things that really matter, like whether a kiosk is turned on, let alone operational efficiency metrics. That’s where Esper comes in.

Esper’s Senior Leadership team has nearly 60 years of experience solving complicated enterprise device problems. We know Android inside and out.

Esper was purpose-built by enterprise engineers, for engineers, to
simplify the enterprise Android device ecosystem.

Our Values
