About Gremlin

Our founders, Kolton Andrus and Matthew Fornaciari, lived and breathed incidents, on-call, and Chaos Engineering at Amazon and Netflix. As “Call Leaders” they were responsible for guiding teams through analyzing and rectifying global outages. After a decade of developing and advocating Chaos Engineering internally, they captured their learnings in the Gremlin product and launched the company in 2016.

Since then we’ve built an incredible team of industry veterans and people eager to learn and bring their knowledge over from other companies. We’re backed by top tier investors Index Ventures, Amplify Partners, and Redpoint Ventures. Our customers love us, and we’re thrilled to be a partner in their success. 

At Gremlin we value:

  • Work-life Balance - Our product helps engineers spend less time on incidents and more time doing what they enjoy. We expect the same for our employees. We offer a generous PTO policy, high quality benefits, and location flexibility for most positions.
  • Clear Communication - Our communication is direct, concise, and above all honest.
  • Customer First - We work diligently to ensure that what we deliver is of the utmost quality and empowers our customers to be successful.
  • Experimentation - Employees challenge assumptions, experiment boldly, and quickly adopt beneficial ideas while abandoning unsuccessful processes.
  • Ownership - We have skin in the game, master all aspects of our role, and take responsibility for our successes and failures.
  • Scrappiness - Employees use the right resources for the task at hand. Excess and deficiency are equally avoided.
  • Community - We take pride in building and bolstering all facets of our community, both internal and external to the company. We support one another and help others to succeed.
