Meet Hopper

We're passionate about simplifying web and building a product that developers love.

Who is Hopper, and what is Thermo?

When it came time to determine how Thermo would communicate, we developed a set of guidelines based on the Laws of Thermodynamics. These laws help guide our values and work.

  • The First Law of Thermo states good work cannot be created in an isolated manner and we must work together to generate the highest quality.
  • The Second Law of Thermo states the size of the Universe can get bigger, never smaller. We must always move forward and expand to our highest potential by constantly innovating the next great thing.
  • The Third Law of Thermo states our differences make us unique, and by listening to perspectives outside our own we can achieve greatness.

Thermo’s Laws can be seen in our work. When you can’t see our work, you can see them in the Thermo mascot, Hopper.

 

Thermo’s Laws can be seen in our work. When you can’t see our work, you can see them in the Thermo mascot, Hopper. Part scientist, part developer, Hopper lives in all of Thermo data centers, protecting them from malware and viruses. Most often you can find Hopper with our team of Thermo Physicists staying up to date in everything cloud.  

We named Hopper after the famed computer programming pioneer, Grace Hopper. As the “Admiral of the Cyber Seas” in the U.S. Navy, Grace and her team were the first to coin the term “debugging” after identifying a moth as the cause of a malfunctioning relay.

Grace once said her greatest accomplishment was in encouraging others to try new things: “They come to me… and say, ‘Do you think we can do this?’ I say, ‘Try it. I’ll back you up.’”

Like Grace, we encourage you to try Thermo. And don’t worry – our our team of Thermo Physicists has your back.
