About PostHog

PostHog helps engineers build better products. We are a single platform to analyze, test, observe, and deploy new features. We give engineers product analytics, session recording, feature flags, A/B testing, event pipelines, SQL access and a data warehouse… and there’s plenty more to come.

PostHog was created as an open source project during 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. Since then, more than 35,000 companies have installed the platform. We've had huge success with our paid upgrades, raised $27m from some of the world's top investors, and have shown strong product-led growth - 97% driven by word of mouth. Despite the 📉 tech market, we're default alive and doing better than ever!

PostHog makes money from our cloud product, or people can self host the open source project. We average 10% monthly revenue growth and are aiming for $10m ARR in early 2024. While others are focused on layoffs and struggling to grow into huge valuations, we're focusing on an awesome product for end users, hiring a handful of exceptional team members and seeing fantastic increases in revenue as a result.

What we value

We are open source - building a huge community around a free-for-life product is key to PostHog's strategy. We aim to become the most transparent company, ever. In order to enable teams to make great decisions, we share as much information as we can. In our public handbook everyone can read about our roadmap, how we pay (or even let go of) people, what our strategy is, and who we have raised money from. Working autonomously and maximizing impact - we don’t tell anyone what to do. Everyone chooses what to work on next based on what is going to have the biggest impact on our customers. Solve big problems - we haven't built our defining feature yet. We are all about shipping fast, talking to users, and iterating.


You’ll have the opportunity to work on huge data challenges (we peak at 1m events/minute and process billions of events) while leading a team of seasoned and smart engineers. You will have incredibly high autonomy and work closely with our customers, who are also engineers. This is a chance to have a great impact in a fast-growing company. 

What you’ll be doing

  • Work closely with the team and plan long-term goals on how to scale the ingestion and export pipeline

  • Maintain a high bar for the team’s quality of work and performance (i.e. incident reviews, stand-ups, etc.) 

  • Ship a bunch of code! 


  • Infrastructure or data experience

  • High ownership, ability to drive big complex products to completion

  • Some leadership experience (this is still mostly a shipping role)

  • Proven ability to lead big projects to completion

Nice to have

  • Node/typescript experience

  • Comfortable running incidents

If this sounds like what you’d love to be doing, we can’t wait to hear from you. If you’re not sure that you exactly fit the above criteria, get in touch anyway. Alignment with our values is just as important as experience! 🙏


What we offer in return:

We believe people from diverse backgrounds, with different identities and experiences, make our product and our company better. That’s why we dedicated a page in our handbook todiversity and inclusion. No matter your background, we'd love to hear from you!

Also, if you have a disability, please let us know if there's any way we can make the interview process better for you - we're happy to accommodate!
