"My manager and tech lead solicit my opinions and feedback regarding my career trajectory. They both work incredibly hard to give me the opportunity to learn."
"Since we have reached an important milestone of 200B events per month, collaboration is more crucial now than ever so we can scale up our cutting-edge applications. I am very excited to be part of this challenging project with the team."
"Shipping fast at Amplitude means getting feedback from customers early in the product development cycle. Better to test something early than spend months on a problem and then realize it was the wrong problem to begin with."
"The level of ownership people across the team have for their work is really special. You can really sense the effort and care that goes into what they do, which is incredibly motivating."
"Our team has a tremendous amount of empathy for our customers and a desire to succeed as a team. Our solutions are solving real problems our customers are facing."
"We’re big fans of running experiments. Whether it’s a new feature in the product or an interesting new technology that helps us build it—experiments help us find the right bets that could really change the trajectory of the company."
We collect and process over 1 trillion data points every month, peaking at over 450,000 events/second. We’ve built a horizontally scalable, highly available system that can smoothly scale up and down with incoming traffic. We make this happen by leveraging great open-source technologies like Kafka, PostgreSQL, Redis, Cassandra, and ElasticSearch.
At the core of Amplitude is a flexible and scalable query system that enables customers to ask questions about their data. Written in Java and backed by Amazon S3, our proprietary distributed column store Nova, is designed for interactive behavioral analysis. It regularly serves queries running on tens of billions of events, with a median query time of <1 second. We’re constantly innovating on its functionality and efficiency.
The frontend is our centerpiece–it’s how we turn a traditionally complex and intimidating experience into an empowering one. We build experiences focused on exploration, understanding, collaboration, and sharing—recognizing that an important insight from your data is only as valuable as your ability to share it with your organization. We work with our talented design and product teams to build fast, reliable, and intuitive user interfaces. Our web application is built on a modern stack of React, Redux, Highcharts, D3, and node, and speaks to a Python API server.
