The Humio story

Christian Hvidtved and Kresten Krab officially founded Humio in 2016 in Aarhus, Denmark, when they brought on Geeta Schmidt as CEO. In early 2016, they released its first product, Humio.

They built Humio as an alternative to existing logging solutions that were missing key elements they needed to achieve results that couldn’t be done with traditional log management tools. Humio is about getting you back to feeling the hum of your systems by exploring, iterating, and understanding all logs. Our mission is to shift the way our customers think about log management, to see the value of having all of your system’s data at your fingertips. It’s as simple as that.

Humio has had a total of $11.8M in funding, with the latest Series A round in Jan. 2019, led by Accel.

The company has more than 60 employees located around the world, and offices in San Francisco, Boston, Seattle, Austin, London, and Aarhus, Denmark.

Our Values

The epicenter of Humio is our people who work in locations around the world. We’re convinced that when customers, partners, and everyone we work with are impacted positively, we end up with happy employees and happy customers! Realizing this culture of happiness every single day means our values boil down to trust, transparency, action-orientation, innovation, and hygge.

Trusting and trustworthy: We don’t question others’ motives or abilities. We empower others. We find freedom by being responsible. We are honest in the work we do, and the interactions we have with customers, partners, and each other. We deeply care for and empathise with our customers.

Authentic: We are open and transparent. We share what we’re working on, and we give input to make the work of others better. We communicate openly, and bravely express our ideas. We believe it’s important to be ourselves. We express our individual nature, and communicate with passion.

Action-oriented. We have a strong bias towards action. We know that it’s better to do something than to not do anything. We act independently, and we believe that done is better than perfect. We are nimble when things change. We look for ways to solve problems and make an impact.

Innovative: We look for unique solutions to big problems. We know that it’s okay to fail, and we fail fast. We are curious, and we ask questions. We are intrigued to find better ways of doing things. We bring a unique perspective, and we do things differently.

Embrace hygge: We strive for a comfortable environment, cozy relationships, and we care for ourselves and others. We embrace differences, and we value the opinions of others. We remember to have fun, celebrate, wear cozy sweaters and funny beanies, and do what we can do to enjoy our busy lives every day.


Humio started small, and even though we continue to grow at the speed of light, we still act small. We strive to work one-on-one with each other, and even more so with customers, communities, industry experts, neighbors, and partners.

Humio is always looking for talented people to join the fun, and make a difference.
