A bit about Scalyr

Scalyr’s mission is to build the best tool for engineers to understand their operational systems. Our founder, Steve Newman, co-founded Writely (aka Google Docs).

It’s lightning fast, feature-rich and customers love it. The opportunity in front of us is huge and we are still in the very early days.
