By centralizing information and offering high-powered integrations, VictorOps makes on-call suck less by empowering DevOps teams to collaborate and reduce mean time to acknowledge/repair.

We are looking for people who have a passion for creating great employee experiences as we strive to create an environment where people enjoy coming to work every day.
