About Us

At Cortex, each one of us has felt the pain of a sprawling service-oriented architecture and dealt with the consequences. We vividly remember the 3:00 am pager notifications for a service named Braavos that we’ve never seen before and the frantic search for the fix so that we can go back to sleep. We've seen service quality turn into tribal knowledge, hurting new engineers who join the team. And we remember seeing our former engineering teams being forced to build and maintain an internal tool to handle service complexity.

Built by engineers from companies like Uber and Twilio, Cortex enables your engineering team to understand and improve the services ecosystem. Our product is trusted by engineering teams around the world, and we’re excited to show you how we can help increase the quality, reliability, and pace of innovation in your engineering organization!

Write the Rules

We’re building an entirely new market, which means defining our own playbook.

No Ego

We are honest and transparent with each other. Ideas are assessed based on their merit, not on who had them.
