Our SaaS and on­-premise solutions enable companies to combine monitoring, alerting, event processing, and predictive analytics into a unified solution.

API driven automation empowers developers and makes operational teams incredibly efficient, while analytics drive insights that improve organization ­wide performance.
We enjoy a global reach, but our customers primarily cluster on the East Coast, California, and to a lesser degree, Europe. Our success stems from (a) delivering an industry-leading offering and (b) an obsession with customer satisfaction.

All of our positions include a discretionary PTO policy, health insurance, gym reimbursement, a generous 401k, the opportunity for a bonus and more.
