About Us

Grit is on a mission to crush technical debt.

We believe that a big challenge in the next decade will be crumbling digital infrastructure. Our entire modern economy runs on code, but we haven’t developed appropriate tools to ensure software remains reliable over time.

Companies know that technical debt threatens the reliability of their services and slows down the pace of innovation, but struggle to find enough engineering talent to fix issues—most software maintenance today is still done manually and delayed as long as possible.

We believe there is a better way: we’re building Grit, a query language for automatically maintaining software. Underneath, we use advanced parsing, static analysis, and machine learning to automatically generate pull requests.

Founders Fund and Abstract Ventures led our $7M seed round and we have many paying customers on our beta product. Our team is currently 5 engineers.

Our Values

How we’re doing what we do.

  1. We choose speed. Moving fast is often a choice, so we move fast even when we don’t need to. This establishes a quick default tempo—even ambitious projects can happen faster than you expect. Default to action.
  2. We work hard on hard problems. ****People should join our team because they are motivated by working on hard problems, not ancillary perks.
  3. Embrace disagreement. When working on anything hard and meaningful, disagreement is inevitable. We understand the problem as best we can, make a decision, and all commit to the solution. Never hide disagreement.
  4. Winning matters. A winning team is more excited and motivated, even under pressure, than a low-stress team facing defeats. We do what it takes to win.

Location Policy

We believe that the most impactful work is done through high bandwidth in-person collaboration, particularly at an early-stage company. Most of the team works from our NYC office, near Union Square. Exceptions are possible for candidates with a demonstrated track record in related fields.
