Who we are
We are driven to create something great that excites and propels developers to be wildly successful.
The explosion in the amount of data that is being created is expected to grow nearly fivefold by 2025 to 175 zettabytes per year, as all things in the virtual world — databases, networks, containers, systems, applications – and the physical world — homes, cities, factories, power grids – are being instrumented. Organizations are emitting relentless streams of time-stamped data. Some have started to realize the value of these observations, but they haven’t even scratched the surface of the intelligence that can be harvested – learnings that can inspire better customer experiences, automate factory floors, and build previously unthinkable applications.
We created InfluxDB, a purpose-built time series platform, to specifically handle these new workloads, encompassing millions of data points and hundreds of data sources because general purpose databases are inadequate. To derive intelligence faster, we created Flux, a powerful scripting and query engine designed specifically to harness real-time insights from time series data.
We are dedicated to open source and truly care about helping developers get to results faster with less complexity and less code. We help customers like Cisco, IBM, PayPal, and Tesla build transformative monitoring, analytics, and IoT applications quicker and to scale, delivering new insights from their data.
InfluxData is backed by Norwest Venture Partners, Sapphire Ventures, Battery Ventures, Trinity Ventures, Mayfield, Harmony Partners, Sorenson Capital, Bloomberg Beta and Y Combinator. We are headquartered in San Francisco, with offices in Austin and team members distributed throughout the U.S. and across Europe.
Our employees are the heart of the company and only by having a core set of beliefs and values will we be successful. We hire and live by these core values:
We value each other: We recognize we come from a variety of backgrounds and have a variety of beliefs and values. We embrace each other as people, respect our differences, and are committed to working together to achieve our shared objectives.
We get stuff done: We are direct, truthful, action oriented, goal driven, and we take ownership. We work together to deliver a great experience for our customers, our community, and our partners.
We believe humility drives learning: We approach each other, our work, our customers, and our community with respect, candor, and humility. We are not greedy. We remain open to new ideas and are committed to continuous learning and improvement.
We embrace failure: We try things, break things, take risks, and believe failure is key to innovation. We bounce back from failure and learn quickly.
We are committed to open source: We believe in open source and are committed to participating in and contributing to the open source community in meaningful ways.
