“From the beginning, Eero’s mission has been to make the technology in homes just work,” said Nick Weaver, co-founder and CEO of Eero. “We started with Wi-Fi because it’s the foundation of the modern home. Every customer deserves reliable and secure Wi-Fi in every room. By joining the Amazon family, we’re excited to learn from and work closely with a team that is defining the future of the home, accelerate our mission, and bring Eero systems to more customers around the globe.”
