Love your cloud bill!💰📉
As a Software Engineer focussing on Customer Success, you will be responsible for ensuring that our customers are successful with our product. You will work closely with customers to understand their needs, build features, provide technical guidance, and troubleshoot issues.
Engineers, who buy infrastructure via IaC on a daily basis are never told the price up front. It’s always been after money has been spent!
We're on a mission to empower engineering teams to use the cloud efficiently and economically. We want everyone to love their cloud bill.
We all adopted the cloud, the utopian dream of using infrastructure as and when needed. This was amazing until that first cloud bill shock happened. We thought it was just a one-off but it keeps popping up, and it feels like we’re playing a losing game of whack-a-mole. Meanwhile, the cloud providers are enjoying the show as their profits are up and to the right. It almost feels like they made cloud pricing opaque by design!
We keep repeating top-down directives to reduce the bill. CEOs shout at managers, who shout at engineers, and now the engineers can't push new features because they're too busy paying back the cloud bill tech-debt. This lasts for weeks, sometimes months, and it frustrates everyone.
This was not the promise of the cloud! So why do we keep repeating this exercise in futility?
Infracost.io solves the problem at its root by showing engineers the cost of what they're buying, before they actually buy it. It sounds obvious, but it really is that simple. The engineers see prices that map directly to their code in their workflow.
We makes it effortless for companies to be cost-efficient from the start. Engineers are no longer frustrated by the futile cloud bill reduction exercises, they are now praised for shipping features fast. When the bill comes in, instead of shouting and finger-pointing, managers are now proud of the efficiency of their organization. For the first time, we love our cloud bills!
Engineering teams at many enterprises including BMW, HelloFresh and HP are using Infracost. We're backed by Y Combinator and other great investors. We are grateful to have a community of over 900 people in our Slack channel and 100 open source contributors supporting our mission.
