About Amper

Amper is a rapidly-growing IoT startup that helps manufacturers unleash their potential with modern software to run operations.

With thousands of connected industrial assets across hundreds of factories running on Amper, we have built a high-growth SaaS engine that has been scaling at double-digit month-over-month growth. Our unique IoT technology has unlocked a self-installed industrial monitoring solution that allows any kind of manufacturer to deploy Amper in minutes.

Amper was born on the factory floor driven by first-hand frustration with the complexity and hidden costs of adopting legacy industrial technology. This gap of inaccessible technology has led to most manufacturers remaining analog and making mission-critical decisions with delayed and inaccurate data manually compiled on spreadsheets. Today, Amper has consumerized industrial technology and created a modern experience for manufacturers to track, execute and improve their operations with real-time and actionable data.

Our vision is to build the market-leading FactoryOS to enable cutting-edge operations, and we are investing in the next level of growth across our GTM and product teams. We are a venture-backed startup with a distributed team and HQ in Chicago.
