At Scalyr, we're building great tools and having a blast doing it.

Our Mission & Work Philosophy

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. The tenets of Scalyr work life include:

  • Transparency - We don't keep secrets or silos at Scalyr. We share good and bad news with each other. Everyone is welcome to contribute in all areas.
  • Camaraderie - We have a sit-down lunch together as a team every day. Each afternoon, we go for a 30-minute group hike to stretch our legs and clear our heads.
  • Niceness - Put simply: We're just nice nerds. We like to laugh, talk about science fiction, quote Monty Python, and wax rhetorically about world events with each other.
  • Low Stress - We don't burn the midnight oil or set "crunch time" deadlines. Our goal is to have fun and build a great product - not lose sleep or give ourselves ulcers.
  • Work-Life Balance - Despite our camaraderie, at the end of the day (literally) it's time to go home. Evenings and weekends are for personal time, not more work.
  • No Ageism - We simply don't care how old you are. We hire regardless of age and believe that your abilities and personality come first, not your number. We have employees in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.
  • Flexibility - We have an unlimited vacation policy and many employees work from home a few days a week.

Our Team

We're a team of engineers and entrepreneurs with years of DevOps experience and we know what it's like to be on call, get an alert, and not have enough information to track down the problem. So we decided to fix that. And here we are.
