Our experience come from building distributed systems and optimizing 6-7 figure AWS bills at high growth startups such as TubeMogul (Adobe), Kevel (adzerk), Twitter, Instacart, Perfect Audience and many others.
Before building CloudForecast, we were part of a founding team at a Y Combinator ad-tech. We helped grow the business and had a successful exited in 2014 (read a fun story here).
We're still great friends through that experience and built this company out of our love of working together, solving tough problems, helping others, and making new friends.
We're building a different type of AWS cost management SaaS, one that focuses on our customers. At CloudForecast, we believe that every team in an organization should have access to the AWS cost management tool without breaking the budget.
We want your company to save money and we want to empower you to have all the tools you need to make informed decisions. AWS cost management and staying within your budget shouldn't be hard, overcomplicated or expensive. We're building features to make cloud cost savings effortless for everyone in your organization.
