About Us

Everybody loves a good diagram. When you look for documentation, you look for the diagrams. But with the current tools, it's hard to create good diagrams of software architecture. General-purpose diagramming tools try to fit every size -- whether you're in marketing, HR, or engineering. The problem is that engineering diagrams are orders of magnitude more complex. You're forced to map out this layered mental model you have in your head onto a one-dimensional image, and it just doesn't work. It's like using Microsoft word to write code.

Good documentation is a productivity multiplier. The majority of an engineer's time is spent building up mental models, and only a tiny fraction to write the code. Our mission is to perfect the tooling around planning and documenting software design for teams, so that you can ship faster and build more robust software.

We're engineers who've worked in complex domains at companies like Stripe and Google that relied heavily on diagrams. We started Terrastruct to modernize diagramming software. If you'd like to be a part of the early team here, we're hiring engineers.
