  • Ask HN: What would you use to build a mostly CRUD back end today?
    5 projects | | 16 Sep 2023
    I may use Flask-Admin initially to offload the "CRUD" operations to have an initial prototype fast but then drop it ASAP because I don't want to write a "flask-admin application" to fight against later on. If the application is mainly "CRUD", then Flask-Admin is suitable.


    Would you do a breakdown/list of all the jobs you've done by sector/vertical and by function/role and by application functionality?

    PostHog is the only open-source Product OS, combining product analytics, session recordings, feature flags, cdp and a data warehouse in one.

    We have a culture of written async communication (see our handbook [0]), lots of individual responsibility and an opportunity to make a huge impact. Being fully remote means we're able to create a team that is truly diverse. We're based all over the world, and the team includes former YC founders, CTOs turned developers and recent grads.

  • Recommendations for self-hosted Google Analytics alternatives?

    Matomo or PostHog
  • Ask HN: If we make it open source, how do we monetize it?
    2 projects | | 3 Jun 2023
    You can earn by offering a hosted version and releasing an open-source version under the GPL license, similar to Plausible [1]. This approach can help reduce competition with the hosted version.

    Alternatively, you can release the software under the MIT license and keep certain parts of the code under an enterprise license, following the PostHog model [2]. This allows you to offer an enterprise version and charge for it.

    Ultimately, the decision should be based on your target users. Small businesses may prefer the hosted version as it relieves them of hosting and maintenance responsibilities.



  • What are some tools which you guys think are essential for SAAS ?

  • As a buyer of SaaS product, which ones do you prefer: self-hosted vs cloud, one-time payment vs subscription?
    3 projects | /r/SaaS | 20 Apr 2023
    There should be reflection on launching a self-hosted/open source and SaaS offer, for your product, though. I'd take a peek at what the teams at Bitwarden, Posthog, Metabase and Lago are doing for some inspiration of how you could consider contrasting both types of offers for the same service.
  • RANT: Google is Actively Making GA4 Worse for Marketers by Removing Attribution Models
    2 projects | /r/PPC | 12 Apr 2023
    I can't find anything quite like GA, but I often use PosthogPosthog a lot. You can add formulas, without SQL or code, into reports which give full flexibility in creating Attribution models.

    If they have a big budget and they can afford shelling out, I personally love Posthog as an analytics tools.
  • Ask HN: Who is hiring? (March 2023)
    16 projects | | 1 Mar 2023
    Remote GMT -8 to +2 | (i) Technical Writer (ii) Senior Developer | Full Time | Salaries all visible at (location-dependent) - see handbook at

    Open source, 6x rev growth last year, heading for profitability soon, well paid experienced team of 37 today, 25k customers across free + paid products, 65k developers in community, 0 outbound sales - all inbound growth. Didn't raise a 2021 overpriced round - real (potential!) upside.

    * Technical writer *

    Looking to hire a developer who loves to write. We aim for each piece we produce to be the best on the internet for that topic.

    Content marketing is huge for us - writing deep technical content is what we want! You'd be on our (small) marketing team, making a huge impact.

    Previous blogging (especially personal/interesting!) and a few years of development experience needed.

    If interested, james at and charles at for a chat.

    * Full stack developer *

    We are looking for someone to build the next generation of our analytics backbone. You'll be working on ClickHouse and Python to make sure all our queries are web scale and users are happy.

    You will (probably) help us build HogQL (our own wrapper around ClickHouse SQL), or whatever else you think makes sense to prioritize. We work in small teams of up to 6, and you'll have a lot of trust to pick what to work on.

    You need experience building high performance data systems, must be an expert at Django with deep SQL/database skills. Ideally, but optionally, you'd have worked in a high growth SaaS company / analytics product and have extensive experience with TypeScript-based React. We need someone ideally that has both worked in a very scrappy / early stage way _and_ ideally has seen a company scale.

    This work will potentially extend into providing a full warehouse to our customers. It's a chance to work on the next Snowflake, but open source and product led, working with new companies from day 1 and staying with them as they scale - so get here in the first 40 employees before we are 100x the size.

    If interested, james at + careers at and please mention you saw us on HN.
