About PostHog

PostHog is an open-source product analytics platform. We enable software teams to understand user behavior by auto-capturing events, performing product analytics, enabling video replays, conducting experiments and rolling out new features behind feature flags. Our open source approach enables companies to self-host, removing the need to send data externally.

Founded in January 2020 by James Hawkins and Tim Glaser, PostHog was a member of Y Combinator’s Winter 2020 batch, and has subsequently raised $27m in funding from GV, Y Combinator, and notable angel investors including Jason Warner (CTO, GitHub), Solomon Hykes (Founder, Docker), and David Cramer (Founder, Sentry).

You can read more about PostHog's story and our transparent, work-in-the-open philosophy in our company handbook.
