Location

Although Cribl is headquartered in San Francisco, we support a remote-first and distributed workforce. We believe great work can happen anywhere!

An Insider's view of Cribl

What are some social events your company does?

Our company is unique in the sense that we've always been fully remote. However, we typically have quarterly all hands where the entire company will get together at a random destination (San Diego, New Orleans, etc) where we kickoff the quarter from a business perspective, but we focus a lot on the human connection that drives a successful company.

Nick

Principal Software Engineer

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The team here at Cribl is helping organizations get better control of their data. Cribl LogStream is an observability pipeline, and our streams-first approach allows our customers to process data before storing it in any number of destinations we support. Organizations get better control of their data and are able to control costs.

Jeremy

Manager, Saas & Chanel Sales

What makes someone successful on your team?

Cribl delivers solutions that unlock the value of all observability data, and we do this by focusing on 5 core values: Customers First, Always, Together, Do-acratic, Irreverent but Serious, and Transparency. Successful members of my team embody these values, being innovative, and boldly challenging the status quo. The potential here is limitless!

Abby

VP of Marketing

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

At Cribl we have established our engineering manifesto that encourages engineers to explore innovative solutions to high impact problems. We combine brainstorming and collaborative design sessions in an open environment where "crazy" ideas are explored, this has led to a number of elegant and high leverage solutions.

Ledion

CTO

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Cribl is a remote first environment, so we actively communicate in different ways and always bring positive energy to those forms of communication. Whether it be sending goofy pictures over Slack or just being able to laugh with each other over a Zoom call, it’s all about being kind and friendly with each other at the end of the day.

Bryce

Senior Software Engineer

What are Cribl Perks + Benefits

Cribl Benefits Overview

We want Cribl to be a place where you make connections with your coworkers, enjoy the collaboration process, and also have the flexibility to schedule and maintain a robust life outside work—that’s why we offer comprehensive
benefits. As we grow, we will continue to expand these benefits to foster a healthy and happy work
environment for our team.

Cribl started as a remote-first company in 2017 and intends to remain remote-first. We
believe great work can happen anywhere.

Cribl offers a handful of medical, dental, and vision insurance options with EAP benefits for employees
to choose from. We cover a generous amount of the costs for mental, dental, vision and offer a range
of insurance and plan options.

Cribl promotes the importance of time away from the office. Taking time off to recharge is critical to
doing your best work. We also believe that "unlimited" vacation policies are generous in theory but
confusing in practice. In fact, we used to offer this and found that employees did not take PTO. We offer a generous PTO package.
