We help engineering teams deeply explore and understand their own production systems.

The pace of innovation for application developers has accelerated dramatically over the past few years. So has the composability of infrastructure and the complexity of product demands. But when it comes to understanding and debugging those systems, we’re still using tools designed for the LAMP stack era. We can do better—we must do better.

Honeycomb is built by a capable team of leading experts in the field, with decades of combined experience spent building some of the internet’s biggest sites, including Facebook, Google, Docker, LinkedIn, Splunk, Dropbox, Parse, and Stripe. Join us.
