About Us
We’re pioneering a new category that helps engineering teams build and ship better code, faster. With founders who built and scaled early teams at PagerDuty, Amazon, and Shopify, we have first-hand experience of the problem that high-growth engineering teams face and a clear vision for how we’ll solve it. We’re already helping customers like Chegg, Keller Williams, Under Armour, Hootsuite, and many more improve service maturity, visibility, and team efficiency.
Our team is completely remote across the United States and Canada. While we do get together once a year in person, we also spend a lot of time doing things online to keep our culture thriving. Lunch games, Friday afternoon socials, and team lunches help us get to know one another as humans. We value the downtime that fuels our creativity, so you won’t find Slack pings at all hours of the day - unless it’s a fur baby photo in the #pets-to-make-you-live-longer channel.
Our culture and values are very important and ground us in how we interact as one team:
Empathy - Think of others; think of your users
Growth Mindset - Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
Intellectual Honesty - The best solution is more important than anyone's ego
Focus & Efficiency - Keep the main thing the main thing
Simplicity
