“An instrument with a meshed or perforated bottom generally used for gold panning in order to strain valuable material from discardable matter.”

Unlocking the value of all observability data

Just like searching for that single nugget of gold in a sea of sand, we understand the challenges customers face when trying to find that one important data point. Our founders have been in the observability ecosystem for 30+ combined years, helping to design and develop big data analytics solutions. Throughout their careers, Clint, Ledion, and Dritan heard customers telling them they wanted to work with log data in motion to get the right data to the right place in the right format. They knew this use case demanded its own fit-for-purpose solution, not just another generic data movement tool. Cribl was founded with one purpose in mind: build a solution to make observability viable for any organization, giving our customers visibility and control while maximizing value from existing tools.

Cribl makes open observability a reality, giving customers the freedom and flexibility to make choices instead of compromises. Our suite of products puts the customer back in control of their telemetry data, giving them the power to choose what is best for their organization, the control to find and get the data where they want, and the flexibility to put it in any format needed.

Customers First, Always

First we help customers. Then everything else.

Irreverent, but Serious

We are a serious company with a love for goats and jokes.


We seek to understand problems and the people who have them before taking action


Trust is earned when everyone is on the same page.


We are collaborative. We are kind. We are open.

We Believe in an Inclusive Workplace

Diversity drives innovation, enables better decisions to support our customers, and inspires change for the better. We’re building a culture where differences are valued and welcomed. We work together to bring out the best in each other.

We are building the company that will become the industry leader in IT and Security data. But, doing that doesn’t mean we’re always serious. We approach our work fearlessly, learn quickly, improve constantly, and celebrate our wins at every turn. And more importantly, we laugh a lot. Like, a lot a lot. We jest, we joke, we kid. We are irreverent, but that never detracts from our mission; in fact, it enhances it, because it makes the mission more fun.

Note: Must love goats. (We’re quite serious about this.)
