Who we are

Kentik is the network observability company. Our platform is a must-have for the network front line, whether digital business, corporate IT, or service provider. Network professionals turn to the Kentik Network Observability Cloud to plan, run, and fix any network, relying on our infinite granularity, AI-driven insights, and insanely fast search.

Kentik makes sense of network, cloud, host, and container flow, Internet routing, performance tests, and network metrics. We show network pros what they need to know about their network performance, health, and security to make their business-critical services shine. Networks power the world’s most valuable companies, and those companies trust Kentik. Market leaders like IBM, Box, and Zoom rely on Kentik for network observability.

What we do

Kentik has a rapidly growing Product Engineering team. This team focuses on all of Kentik’s user-facing interfaces, both visual and programmatic. We aim to build simple, easy to use interfaces; but simple for users typically means engineered complexity under the hood.

We have built a team of world-class engineers, network experts, and technology thought leaders in a remote-friendly culture from day one.
