We’re on a mission to liberate knowledge

Today, essential knowledge about engineering output and other artifacts has become trapped inside a growing array of tools and tribes at companies using a distributed architecture.

We're on a mission to liberate this knowledge by making it accessible and actionable in a tool loved by teams of developers who write, deploy and operate code as well as engineering managers.


Meet our team of happy craftspeople obsessed with empowering your team to manage development sprawl.

The story behind us

configure8 was founded in 2021 by Seth Demsey and Jay Crystal to solve pain points they experienced in start-ups they've built as well as when building software inside established companies. After the initial launch from Jay's backyard during the pandemic, our team has grown and focused on building a novel solution for forward-thinking companies of all sizes.

The mission behind all our work

When we began our journey, only the very largest companies had access to custom-built tooling that alleviated pain points around creating and managing reliable software built on a distributed architecture. Our mission is to democratize access to high-quality tooling for teams of any size that alleviates the burdens of software development sprawl.
