What Lumos makes: The internal AppStore for companies.
💻 Engineers, Product, Design



Additional info

Lumos only started selling their product in late 2021, and they've already grown to significant revenue since then. 

Have you ever sent an IT support ticket to Apple asking to download Netflix? No, because the Apple App Store gives you the power to download apps yourself. Now, imagine Apple would auto-unsubscribe your account when you stop using Netflix to save you money. Or, they would ask you to deactivate location-sharing if Netflix continuously used it in the background for no good reason, protecting your privacy.

That’s what Lumos does for enterprises. Lumos is the first AppStore for Companies. You go to the Lumos AppStore, request an app, like GitHub, pick the repositories you need, your manager approves the request through Slack, and Lumos creates access to GitHub — instantly. Plus, IT and Security love it as well. They can configure Lumos to grant access to, say AWS Admin rights, for only a limited time or remove access when you stop using the app or change your role inside the company.

The team is set to grow rapidly, and this is a great time to get in on the ground floor. The GP from Andreessen Horowitz that invested in Lumos compares them to Okta, which Andreessen Horowitz also invested in around a decade ago and is now a $10b+ public company.

The team values product-oriented engineers who want to ship products and iterate with customers. We'd encourage you to reach out.

If you join a company, my general advice is to join a company on a breakout trajectory.
