Jitsu, a San Francisco, CA-based open-source data integration and event collection service, raised $2m in seed funding.
The round was led by Costanoa Ventures with participation from YCombinator, The House Fund, and SignalFire.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development and hiring.
Co-founded by Peter Wysinski and Vladimir Klimontovich, Jitsu provides an open-source data integration and event collection service that addresses the needs of companies wanting to collect their customer and app data without having to send it to a third party.
Wysinski and Klimontovich were previous CTOs who saw the need for a transparent way to collect user and product event data and send it into modern data warehouses and started http://eventnative.org/ as an open source project.
Jitsu is the hosted version of EventNative that also includes pre-built connectors as well as combines batch-based and event-based integrations into one platform. Its data integration solution can be run in a managed environment on Jitsu Cloud or self hosted on a company’s own infrastructure. It can be dropped in to replace proprietary analytics solutions such as Google and Segment.
