Announcing Funding by YCombinator, Javelin, Harrison Metal & others
Mar 2, 2017 by DROdio
We’re happy to announce that Armory is being funded by YCombinator, Javelin Venture Partners, Harrison Metal, Eric Ries (author of ‘The Lean Startup’), Transmedia Capital, XYZvc, Liquid2 (Joe Montana’s fund), Tikhon Bernstam, Ross Fubini, and a number of other angels.
These investors have backed Armory because they believe in our long-term vision to advance the Software Revolution, helping anyone ship better software.
Our immediate focus is to make deployments boring and self-service. Engineers at companies should be empowered to deploy their own code– in the background continuously– without downtime or errors. We’re commercializing Spinnaker (Netflix’s OSS next-gen immutable infrastructure CD platform that enables blue/green deploys, canaries & rollbacks) so it “just works” for the enterprise by injecting safety, velocity, intelligence, auditing and compliance into the software deployment process.
We are hiring aggressively! Come take a peek under the hood of Armory and watch several short videos from our investors on why they believe so much in Armory. And if you’d like to apply to join our Tribe, head over here.
