The Dark Sky Company specializes in weather forecasting and visualization. Back in 2011, we had the crazy idea that robots could predict the weather with down-to-the-minute precision, and thanks to a successful Kickstarter, we were able to give it a shot. Since then, those robots have become "scarily accurate," powering our own award-winning weather app, Dark Sky, in addition to thousands of other businesses, apps, and crazy ideas.
For a software startup, we’re a bit unusual: we’re self-funded, have been profitable from the start, and funnel a lot of our efforts into researching new ways to do what we do. Although we’re no longer a two-man operation—having partnered with a company called Applied Invention and grown our team—our focus has always been on sustainability over growth, and we plan to keep it that way.
