About Armory

Armory was founded in 2016 to unlock innovation by making software delivery continuous, collaborative, scalable and safe. We power innovation at dozens of the world’s leading enterprises, including Fortune 500 banks, retailers, and software providers, as well as hyper-growth startups across a variety of industries.

Armory is built on Spinnaker and provides stability, scalability, security and compliance, end-to-end integrations, powerful features and Armory's deep expertise.

Software is the highest-leverage way for companies to create enterprise value, and forward-thinking enterprises are increasingly empowering their developers to own their services, from code to the cloud. Netflix built Spinnaker – the world’s most powerful multi-cloud continuous delivery platform – to deliver on this vision at massive scale. With Spinnaker, teams can instantly and safely deploy their code to any and all clouds using a single, golden path to production.

Armory provides a collaborative software delivery platform, with Spinnaker at its core. Our enterprise-grade version of Spinnaker is packed with features that make software delivery continuous, collaborative, scalable and safe. We are top contributors to the open source project, and our engineers are the world’s leading experts in implementing Spinnaker at scale in the enterprise.

From the get-go, our founders were focused on building a different type of company with a unique culture. At Armory, we believe in “empowering the edges” – giving power and information to everyone in the organization, not just to the people at the top. We are creating a deep Operating Canvas that empowers everyone at Armory to do their best and most innovative work. We believe that by living these values ourselves, we can build them into a software platform that helps the entire world innovate faster.
