Xkit is building the integration platform for developers. It’s a tool that makes building integrations to SaaS services easier by abstracting away end-user authentication. Xkit is built entirely in Elixir (using Phoenix) and uses React on the front-end. We’re well-funded by well-known investors including Y Combinator and Initialized Capital.
We’re growing and we can’t keep up with demands from our users, so we need some help!
My name: Trey Griffith
My position: Founder/CEO
Company name: Xkit
Company info and history:
I’m the sole developer of Xkit, a developer tool that was borne out a problem I experience while building another company: building integrations to 3rd party services even as an experienced developer, was way too hard and annoying. A few months ago I launched on Hacker News and Product Hunt and since then I’ve been adding new connectors (up to 40 from 15) and new styles of integrations (API keys and org-wide integrations are the latest).
But now I can’t keep up with the new integrations requests, so I need some help!
We’re a Y Combinator company, and our lead investor is Initialized Capital.
Xkit is built in Elixir using Phoenix and runs on React on the front-end. We deploy everything on AWS (you may have seen my blog post about this.
