I've seen a lot of discussion on serverless recently, but are there any companies actually using serverless tech in production?

There is a company called Instant that is currently running Serverless. If I remember correctly, they are actually using AWS Lambda. You can probably ask them how is it working out :)

I used it for a couple of months and it worked just great! Stopped using it because they pivoted to something else, but not due to any other problem in particular.

My company uses serverless in production. In particular I wrote a series of AWS Lambda functions to handle callbacks from third party vendors. It handles hundreds of thousands of requests a day (without using our server resources) for dollars a month. More of a fringe case, but works great for what we wanted.
