At Akita, we're making observability accessible to "99% developers."
A big part of the "one-click" observability dream is making it as easy as possible for non-experts to understand what's going on with their systems. Our cutting-edge API traffic inference engine automatically analyzes API traffic to derive insights: everything from the structure of the API endpoints to potential changes of interest to API behavior. We're looking for backend engineers excited about building network traffic analysis, towards empowering developers to understand their systems.
What is Akita?
Today, understanding system behavior is hard. Developers have to instrument their systems; they have to understand logs, metrics, and traces. At Akita, we're building a new kind of observability solution that does not require an internal expert to install and operate. Our solution has two main parts: an eBPF-based approach for automatically watching API traffic and automatic inference over the API traffic
