We’re working to increase the number of successful products in the world

Why we’re here

We’re a small (but growing) team building an open source platform that empowers customers to create successful products.

Until now, tools for building products have been fragmented. Product analytics, heatmaps, session recording and A/B testing all provide immense value, but existing tools weren’t natively built to work together.

PostHog is different by offering these tools (and more) in a single platform that you can host yourself.

We started PostHog as part of Y Combinator's W20 cohort and had the most successful B2B software launch on HackerNews since 2012 - with a product that was just 4 weeks old.

We're proudly backed by some of the world's top investors and believe in product-led growth, where we build something awesome and let our product bring the users, rather than an outbound sales team and regular cold calls.

What does this mean for you? We have a lot of capital, but we're a lean, strong team - so you've got the opportunity to have a huge impact.

Collaborating through public GitHub issues and pull requests helps us clarify our ideas and allows others to provide feedback, both key to our development and growth.

I hate how much I enjoy working at PostHog. It has ruined all other companies for me. Thanks a lot.

People and Talent

I love PostHog’s level of autonomy and transparency. We have a lot of freedom and trust in the team, but we also hold each other accountable and don’t shy away from giving (and receiving) a lot of feedback. Plus the team helped me to pick up some basic coding skills, which is amazing!

Working at PostHog feels like successfully having a lot of cooks in the kitchen. (People might not believe this or find it alarming, so proceed with caution!)

Open roles

Our team is proactively looking for the following:

We take exceptional people when they come along - and we really mean that! Don’t see a specific role listed? That doesn't mean we won't have a spot for you.

We take applications seriously - you won't just end up in a candidate database. We make quick decisions, and if the timing isn’t quite right, we’ll do our best to provide insight into a better time to apply.
