Nice to Have

We’ve lived and breathed incidents, on-call, and Chaos Engineering for a decade. Our founders, Kolton Andrus and Matthew Fornaciari, have served as ‘Call Leaders’ at Amazon and Netflix, where they were responsible for guiding on-calls through analyzing and rectifying global outages at scale. After years of developing and advocating Chaos Engineering internally, they've captured their learnings in the Gremlin product and aspire to democratize the practice.
We're backed by top tier investors, Index Ventures, Amplify Partners, and Redpoint Ventures, and have closed major enterprise customers with names you’ll recognize.

Integrity: Do you choose to do the right thing, especially when it’s difficult?
Make It So: Are you the type of person that works to be the change you wish to see at a company?
Ownership: You use your skill and judgement to make decisions and autonomously act upon them, owning the outcome.
Unabated Ambition: Do you aspire to help build a lasting company?
If you're passionate about building and designing tools that help the best companies in the world deliver more reliable service to millions of customers each and every day, we'd love to hear from you.
