About Us

Stackify: By devs, for devs.

Stackify was founded in January 2012 by Matt Watson. Before Stackify he was the CTO of a rapidly growing enterprise software service (SaaS) provider. He noticed that agile development had caused his developers to be much more involved in day-to-day IT operations, but his team lacked the tools and server access to do it efficiently. He founded Stackify to create a suite of tools to solve this problem, which virtually every dev and dev team deals with.


Stackify tells you WTF your code is doing.

We build developer tools to improve app performance no matter where your code runs.
