Chronosphere, a technology startup redeﬁning monitoring for the cloud-native world, has announced plans to expand its engineering team in Vilnius. The company expects to double its employee count in Lithuania over the next three years.
At its heart, Chronosphere is a solution that provides deep insight into the operations of complex cloud-based applications. Company’s customers vary from emerging startups like Tecton to later-stage startups and well-known global brands including one of the largest delivery app companies as well as a multinational ﬁnancial services company.
Founded in 2019 by Martin Mao and Rob Skillington, Chronosphere is built on the open-source M3 metrics engine, created by the founding team when working at Uber. Developing Uber’s cloud-native monitoring platform, the founders experienced first-hand the complexity and scale required to monitor cloud-native workloads.
Ingesting billions of Uber data points per second and serving hundreds of thousands of dashboards and alerts, M3 proved it can power large production monitoring cases and was adopted by other household brands such as Walmart, LinkedIn, and FedEx. Yet, the demands of large organisations and fast-growing tech companies soon outgrew the open-source project, and Chronosphere was born.
“Our next step was to build upon the production-tested technology and experience gained, and create the world’s most scalable, reliable, and customisable monitoring solution for the companies embarking on their cloud-native journeys,” says Mantas Klasavičius, Head of Chronosphere in Lithuania. ”Our goal is to enable organisations to operate reliably at scale and make precise, data-driven decisions.”
Over the course of 2020, Chronosphere nearly tripled its headcount and raised over 43 million dollars in funding to expand its operations. Currently, Chronosphere has over 60 employees worldwide, with the team distributed in major hubs in New York, Seattle, and Vilnius.
