How engineers build better products
The single platform to analyze, test, observe, and deploy new features
These folks build products users want with
PostHog is 7+ tools
Product engineering has never been so lit.
Mmmm, code examples
Here's what you can do with the PostHog JS code snippet and your product.
One platform, thousands of use cases
PostHog grows with you – from startups to growth stage and beyond.
Replaces the modern data stack
With 7+ products on one platform, you'll spend less time engineering your data integrations and more time building your product.
Tutorials, tutorials, tutorials!
Our community members use PostHog in ways we never imagined. (Some have even built entire products on our API.) Maybe we’ll write about yours next?
Guides for hockey-stick growth
We cover how products like ours went from pre-revenue to $100 million ARR - all in the open.
Warning: You'll hate PostHog if...
You enjoy "jumping on a quick call" with sales
You love needlessly wasting company money
We only have usage-based pricing that decreases exponentially with scale.
You'd rather buy before you try
We offer a free tier so large that only a fraction of our customers pay us anything. Even worse, we continually try to reduce our pricing.
You think your email is a good trade for that free whitepaper
Please press Ctrl + W now, or ask your network administrator to close your window.
You give out your credit card details to strangers
You'd rather buy a product you've never used instead of a generous free trial?
You're desperate for commitment
Sadly, we don't offer annual contracts (unless you ask for one).
You loathe new features, and bug fixes
Unfortunately we release new updates weekly.
You'd rather buy disparate tools and mangle them together
Apologies. Our focus is for you to engineer your product, not your data.
You like buying a whole product suite to get access to one tool
Alas we don't force people to buy stuff they don't use. We suit people who want to pay by product.
You think CSMs are your friends
Honey, those emails are automated.
You enjoy sitting through hours of training more than using the product
Data privacy isn't a big deal to you. (GDP-what now?)
Get cookie-less tracking, regional hosting, and raw database access.
Networking events are your things
We put on an event once. It was a disaster. Never again.
You love being out of the loop
Your CRM is a Rolodex
We don't even use phones, though we do have a fax number for legal and compliance reasons.
We built PostHog on our API. This means you get full access to anything you want with your event and customer data that's ingested by PostHog. Here are some examples.:
Evaluate feature flags from anywhere
If you don't use one of our SDKs, you can get a flag status for a user from the API on-the-fly.
Pull basic site stats from saved insights
Show stats like active users, pageviews, or number of daily signups (like we use near the bottom of this page!).
Build your own visualizations of insights within your own app or internal dashboard.
Read/write user properties and display in your app
Use PostHog as an external database by storing/reading user data and showing it in their user profile.
Add high-value users to a cohort
If you're running Clearbit on new signups, you can automatically add them to a cohort based on criteria from enrichment services.
Notate when a feature is released
Annotations are useful for understanding inflection points in insights. You can programmatically create annotations like when a PR is merged.
HogQL is our translation layer over ClickHouse SQL. Use HogQL expressions to use JOINs and subqueries, filter event lists, and write complex queries (that aren't supported by the PostHog UI) to analyze data in any way you want.
Double (or even triple?) breakdowns
concat(properties.name,' ; ',properties.$current_url)
Advanced date filtering, relative times, weekly/monthly reports
Custom SQL insights directly accessing data
Custom scoring or "group/bin" events
NPS score, superhuman score calculations
Access JSON, object, list data
Full control of your customer data
Track users without cookies, anonymize users, configure a reverse proxy
Choose your hosting location
Store user data in the US or EU depending on your needs
Full access to customer data
API offers total access to customer and event data
