Contributing

We <3 contributions big and small. In priority order (although everything is appreciated) with the most helpful first:

Philosophy

Our mission is to increase the number of successful products in the world. To do that, we build product and data tools that help you understand user behavior without losing control of your data.

In our view, third-party analytics tools do not work in a world of cookie deprecation, GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA, and many other four-letter acronyms. PostHog is the alternative to sending all of your customers' personal information and usage data to third-parties.

PostHog gives you every tool you need to understand user behavior, develop and test improvements, and release changes to make your product more successful.

PostHog operates in public as much as possible. We detail how we work and our learning on building and running a fast-growing, product-focused startup in our handbook.

Open-source vs. paid

This repo is available under the MIT expat license, except for the ee directory (which has it's license here) if applicable.

Need absolutely 💯% FOSS? Check out our posthog-foss repository, which is purged of all proprietary code and features.

Using premium features (contained in the ee directory) with a self-hosted instance require a PostHog license. To learn more, book a demo or see our pricing page.

We’re hiring!

Come help us make PostHog even better. We're growing fast and would love for you to join us.

What companies are saying about us

We no longer needed a dedicated DevOps team; instead, we actively participated in the industrialization and deployment of our applications through Plural. Additionally, it allowed us to quickly gain proficiency in Terraform and Helm.

Walid El Bouchikhi
Data Engineer at Beamy

I have neither the patience nor the talent for DevOps/SysAdmin work, and yet I've deployed four enterprise-caliber open-source apps on Kubernetes... since 9am today. Bonkers.

Sawyer Waugh
Head of Engineering at Justifi

This is awesome. You saved me hours of further DevOps work for our v1 release. Just to say, I really love Plural.

Ismael Goulani
CTO & Data Engineer at Modeo

Wow! First of all I want to say thank you for creating Plural! It solves a lot of problems coming from a non-DevOps background. You guys are amazing!

Joey Taleño
Head of Data at Poplar Homes

We have been using Plural for complex Kubernetes deployments of Kubeflow and are excited with the possibilities it provides in making our workflows simpler and more efficient.

Jürgen Stary

Plural has been awesome, it’s super fast and intuitive to get going and there is zero-to-no overhead of the app management.

Case StudyHow Fnatic Deploys Their Data Stack with Plural

Fnatic is a leading global esports performance brand headquartered in London, focused on leveling up gamers. At the core of Fnatic’s success is its best-in-class data team. The Fnatic data team relies on third-party applications to serve different business functions with every member of the organization utilizing data daily. While having access to an abundance of data is great, it opens up a degree of complexity when it comes to answering critical business questions and in-game analytics for gaming members.

To answer these questions, the data team began constructing a data stack to solve these use cases. Since the team at Fnatic are big fans of open-source they elected to build their stack with popular open-source technologies.
