Hello! What's your background, and what are you working on?
Hello, I'm Sarah Hum and I'm one of the founders at Canny.
I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. My professional background is in design. I studied graphic design in university and worked as a product designer at Facebook straight out of school. During that time, I met my co-founder Andrew, who was a software engineer at Facebook.
As a Canadian from a small-time design school, Facebook was a good way to get my foot in the door. Turns out, nothing can really prepare you for being a founder. A year and a half later, I quit to work on Canny.
In March 2017, my co-founder Andrew and I launched Canny on ProductHunt. Canny helps software teams make better product decisions. As software businesses grow and they get more customers, feedback becomes messy. There's so much valuable insight but it's hard to see through the noise. That's when teams hire Canny to help keep track of customer feedback in an organized, understandable way.
Canny is completely bootstrapped and we recently hit 35k MRR. With that money, we've been able to start growing our team. We're now a happy family of five.
