Gantry is building product testing and analytics for LLM-powered applications. We’re developing the most reliable, trustworthy way to evaluate LLM apps, and workflows to integrate those evaluations into the product development process. You can think of it like unit testing + Mixpanel for AI app builders. Gantry was founded by Josh Tobin, former OpenAI researcher and co-founder of The Full Stack, and Vicki Cheung, former founding engineer at OpenAI and Compute team lead at Lyft.
