Instacart, a leader in the on-demand marketplace, provides one-hour grocery delivery to users of their app and employs thousands of shoppers across the US to support order fulfillment.
Of the one trillion dollar grocery industry, only 1% of market share currently comes from online grocery sales. As Instacart increasingly captures more of this market, they turn to Rollbar for continuous monitoring of their service’s health.
With a promise of one-hour delivery, and a shopper workforce relying on their apps, Instacart’s services must be up at all times. Rollbar’s proactive alerting and granular error forensics facilitates the continuous integration and deployment pipeline at the heart of Instacart’s service.
Rollbar allows us to go from alerting to impact analysis and resolution in a matter of minutes. It's fully ingrained into our development cycle and monitoring. Without it we would be flying blind.

We are excited to announce a significant upgrade to our PHP notifier SDK. This new version will make it much easier for customers to integrate their PHP apps with Rollbar. It uses the latest standards like Composer, proper namespaces, and is more reliable. Here are some of the highlights:

Rollbar offers an impressive array of error alerting and notification options for you to choose from, which is awesome! But sometimes we hear from our users that they aren't quite sure how to leverage their notifications to get the best results. What do notifications here at Rollbar do? How do they work? How should you interpret them? And perhaps most importantly, what are the best practices? Let's explore the answers to all these questions today.
When I first started full-time here at Rollbar, I was living in Malaysia for the month, starting a year-long journey around the world that I'm currently still on. While it was certainly fun and exciting to explore Kuala Lumpur, it was a bit more difficult to onboard in a new job when I was 15 hours ahead of the rest of the team. Luckily, everyone here at Rollbar is incredibly flexible and helpful, and we were able to get creative about the onboarding process. If you're considering onboarding a remote employee in a different time zone as the rest of your team, read on for some tips and tricks that should help speed up the process.
