Scalable Operations Analytics

Scalable Operations Analytics

We’re a VC-funded startup, founded in 2011 by former Google engineers with a deep background in technical operations. Our founder Steve Newman (one of the creators of Google Docs) was frustrated by the sheer number of tools required to get his job done managing infrastructure at Google (17 different tools at one point!). Scalyr was created to solve that problem. Scalyr's mission is to build the best tool for engineers to understand their operational systems. We want to make it fast, scalable, and reliable, all the while making sure it's easy to learn and use. We organize our daily work in a way that minimizes stress and maximizes happiness, and we want an office environment that's fun, fulfilling, and smart. In many ways, we're quite different from the 'typical' Silicon Valley tech company that you've likely read about.
