Empower software engineering organizations to do their best work with readily available data, actionable insights, and automation around every aspect of the software development process.
The Story of Faros AI
Faros AI was founded by the founding team of Salesforce Einstein - the first, comprehensive enterprise AI platform. While leading the engineering efforts for Salesforce Einstein, the founders were frustrated by the lack of data-backed narratives when making decisions on engineering allocation and investment. Recognizing this as a problem plaguing most software engineering organizations today, the founders built Faros AI to empower engineering organizations with the data and insights they need to optimize their operations and drive better business outcomes.
Faros AI provides innovative and reliable AI solutions giving software engineering teams and leaders much needed visibility into every aspect of the software development process — from velocity and quality, to cost, team health, organizational goals, and more. With data that is readily available and actionable, Faros AI is transforming the way engineering organizations operate, building a future where every company is a world class software company.
Make every company a world-class software company
Our values serve as a compass to guide us in all that we do. They shape every aspect of our company,
from our work ethic to how we treat each other.
Living by our values
We prioritize living by our values over avoiding conflict. This means that we sometimes need to embrace difficult conversations. But by prioritizing integrity, respect, and openness, we create a positive work environment where everyone can thrive.
We iterate rapidly, delivering quick value incrementally to our customers, all the while working towards the long term vision.
At any given time, there are always a lot of different things vying for our attention, but we prioritize the critical few over the important many.
Our teammates are owners. This means that we place a premium on individual responsibility over process. Everyone is expected to pick up the trash when they see it.
Meet our team of innovators,
disruptors, and world‑class problem solvers
Our team is the driving force behind our products and solutions. With diverse backgrounds and expertise, we continually push the boundaries of what's possible.
