PostHog exists to increase the number of successful products in the world.We provide an open source platform for product analytics. The product is new - we launched in February 2020, and have had thousands of deployments organically since we started.This growth has meant we've been able to raise significant investment from the best in the world, such as YCombinator and GV.

The release schedule is wildWe're up against billion dollar companies, and we're catching up. We will overtake them by being faster.Comments like this are what we live and die by.We keep cycles very short. There is a roadmap session, like this, every two weeks - each developer suggests what they want to build to have the greatest impact, then they do just that. You choose what you focus on, and you are responsible for tests, user feedback and tracking.The people here are really, really smartEvery day we feel lucky to have them here!We're all remote, and we raised enough to pay top of market.
