Build the best low-cost web analytics tool in the world and get a wider audience using PostHog.

Q4 2023 Goals

  1. Get 5 20k+ customers to turn PostHog on on their website
  • Build the dashboards to match 80% of functionality
  • Start working towards the architecture to scale to a general release

Who are we building for?


  • Primary Personas:

    • Technical Founder
      • First technical person at the company, responsible for setting up the initial landing page.
      • At an early stage, wants tools that initially cost little to nothing, but won't need to be replaced as the company grows.
    • Product engineer
      • These are the engineers building the product. Normally full-stack engineers skewing frontend or frontend engineers.
      • Product engineers have more limited time. Need to quickly get high-quality insights to inform what they are building and assess what they've shipped.
  • Not a focus but should be usable by:

    • Other engineers
    • Marketing
    • Everyone in the product team (PMs, designers)
    • Non-technical leadership

What types of companies?

We want to build something that will convince our existing large (20k+) customers to turn PostHog on on their marketing website.

Jobs to be done

Web analytics is an opinionated tool, that will help people:

  • Measure and improve the effectiveness of their acquisition strategy
  • Measure and improve the effectiveness of their conversion funnels
  • Understand who is using their website
  • Understand how their website is being used
  • Create simple-to-medium complexity combinations of these (e.g. how likely are people who came in from this ad to convert, compared to everyone else)

Additionally, it should be:

  • Easy to set up
  • Easy to use
  • It's ok if that means we don't cover every use case, as people who need more can use product analytics


3 year goals

  • Be useful for the best high growth companies right from the start
  • Lead companies into other PostHog products as they start to need them, massively boosting them
  • Run on cheap and fast infrastructure
  • Can scale to the biggest websites in the world
  • Solve the extremely common problem of marketing and product using completely siloed data stacks

Developing locally

❗️ This guide is intended only for development of PostHog itself. If you're looking to deploy PostHog for your product analytics needs, go to Self-host PostHog . What does PostHog look like on the inside? Before jumping into setup, let's dissect a PostHog.
