About Aspen Mesh

The exploding complexity of microservices demands a new way of working. People just can’t manage it all. You are inundated with data and have outdated toolsets – the old way of working just doesn’t scale to manage in this new world.

We are tapping into the virtually limitless potential of what is already inside today’s modern app environment. 

Our expertise is tapping the self-optimizing capabilities already built in to today’s cloud-native environment in order to ensure flawless app performance at scale. Endless pre-prod testing and then reacting to error logs isn’t tenable the new world. Our heritage of shaping early service mesh code and pioneering mesh implementation in large enterprises gives us rare knowledge of the intricacies of a modern app environment. We have helped one of the world’s largest, most complex microservices environments achieve unprecedented app performance.

We know how to tap into powerful capabilities already built in to Kubernetes, service mesh and distributed cloud environments – and we are applying machine learning and OpenTelemetry to enable self-optimizing processes. We see a future of self-optimizing, predictive scaling, continuous rollouts straight to production, and automatic anomaly detection and correction.

Our Executive Team

Shawn Wormke, Incubation Lead

Shawn’s passion for building small teams focused on bringing emerging technologies to market drove him to co-found and lead Aspen Mesh. With two decades of experience building application networking and security products in companies like Cisco, LineRate Systems and F5, he had seen enterprises transition from hardware to software as they demanded to be more agile. As applications continue to evolve, he envisions a world where developers are unencumbered by infrastructure – and manageability, security and control the business demands are provided by a service mesh.

Scott builds and leads effective data analytics and data science teams. He’s most interested in enabling clever problem solvers, technical experts and passionate story-tellers to address interesting business questions with data. He has a track record of contributing to data strategy and data product creation and evolution.


Julie Jensen, Director of Marketing

Julie has proven she understands how to help startup tech companies grow fast. She thrives when she’s working alongside smart Product and Engineering teams designing something that’s never been seen before. She has led marketing efforts to bring new companies and their first product to market in industries that span B2B SaaS, BI/Data Analytics, enterprise infrastructure (IaaS), robotics and green tech. A nature lover and adventurer, Julie can be found either on a trail or the ski slopes of Colorado.


Join the Team

(placeholder copy) We’re an accomplished (and fun!) team that is actively expanding to address the challenges of scaling microservice architectures. We use modern tools like Go, TypeScript, C++, Git, CircleCI and Jenkins to build the Aspen Mesh solution which helps users understand and control how their microservices are communicating in their Kubernetes clusters. We’re focused on delivering a leading technology and on fostering a culture where you can grow your skills and have fun doing it. If you are interested in Kubernetes, microservices or Cloud-native technology, we’d like to hear from you!

Get the Best of Both Worlds

We’re an F5 incubation which means you get the perks and culture of a startup along with the benefits of a globally established company.

Work in a Great Place

We’re a tight-knit team that builds on one another’s expertise – and has regular (non-work related) team events. Remote xxxxx.Being in downtown Boulder means there are plenty of opportunities to have fun.
