We Are SmartFile

SmartFile is made up of a team of tech enthusiasts that are passionate about innovation and customer experience.

Founding Story

Two serial entrepreneurs, John Hurley and Ben Timby, founded SmartFile in 2009. Their idea was to create a simple web-based FTP product and, in the fall of that year, SmartFile was released for public consumption.

Most importantly, SmartFile is a customer-centric company, sharing the belief that the software we develop is something that we cannot solely take the credit for. The features and makeup of our product is a result of our communication with the people who matter, our customers.

SmartFile Founder - John Hurley
"The SmartFile culture is about being open and transparent, not only to our customers but also to our employees. Our goal is to build a product and a company that everyone enjoys."
- John Hurley, SmartFile Founder
