The remarkable growth in the number of third-party libraries, services, and tools used in modern distributed systems have enabled teams to be more nimble than ever before. But all of this "more" comes with a hidden cost ... sprawl.
Sprawl has made the simplicity of compiling and shipping with the press of a button a feature of a bygone era. "You build it, you operate it" in today's world produces a subpar developer experience, governance complexities, and manual tasks that bottleneck developer and ops teams.
It doesn't have to be this way! configure8 is on a mission to tame sprawl through abstraction and meta-orchestration of your existing tools. In doing so, we help your developers move faster and build better software with self-serve access to the knowledge and functionality they need.
Meet our happy team. We love helping your team tame sprawl.
When we began our journey, only the very largest companies had access to custom-built tooling that alleviated pain points around creating and managing reliable, cost-efficient software built on a distributed cloud architecture. Our mission is to democratize access to high-quality tooling that alleviates the burdens of software development sprawl.
We've experienced the pain points of sprawling distributed systems. We understand the complexities of leading a team of thousands running a sprawling system inside a regulated entity. We've experienced the stress of getting paged at 2AM for a service you know nothing about. We've witnessed governance complexities and manual tasks related to "you build it, you operate it" bottleneck our development and ops teams. Our ability to achieve the highest standards was limited by spreadsheets and static wikis.
Built by engineers with backgrounds at Microsoft, Google, NASA and AOL / Yahoo!, configure8 helps developers move faster and build better software with self-serve access to the knowledge and functionality they need.
Our customers are developers and engineering managers. We are developers and engineering managers. We bring empathy and love for our users in all that we do.
Our customers demand quality. We know that because, as developers, we demand quality.
We challenge the status quo and love the challenge of ‘it can’t be done’. We move quickly and with calculation.
We do what we say, and say what we mean.
We're headquartered in the Washington DC area.
We work with the best engineers, wherever they are based.
