See how Blue Matador performs in the arena.
The idea for Blue Matador was born the same day as CEO Matthew Barlocker’s son. During this amazing life moment, the production environment for his fast-growth startup (at which he was Chief Architect) went down. The manual tools he had in place didn't provide a proactive alert when he needed it the most. None of them gave him a simple, actionable alert in time for him to do anything about it. As he held his new baby for the first time, he was also doing a post-mortem on his phone.
Matthew went on to start Blue Matador to spare other engineers from having their lives interrupted by something preventable because their manual tools didn’t alert them in time. To that end, Blue Matador provides proactive, timely alerts, so devs see critical issues before production crashes.
We want to spare engineers from having their lives interrupted by something preventable because their manual tools didn’t alert them in time.
