About us

We're a small, bootstrapped team of ex-big tech engineers and a product manager. We think of ourselves as a small-batch software shop in the world dominated by large tech corporations.

We "build in public" and openly share how we operate in our "Behind the Scenes" newsletter and podcast.

We publish updates and engage with our users on our subreddit. File a bug, request a feature or just say hi. We love hearing back from users!
