Matin said that, “We’re laser-focused on helping Product Managers get deeper insights on their users. This rapid growth is a strong signal that product managers and engineers are tired of wasting their time with the manual parts of analytics instrumentation. We’re excited to build more in 2019 to eliminate even more analytics friction for our customers.”
