CloudBees Raises $62M in Growth Funding
June 27, 2018

CloudBees has successfully closed $62 million in growth funding.

The funding round was made up of $37 million of equity led by Delta-v Capital and $25 million of growth financing from Golub Capital’s Late Stage Lending business. The new equity financing included strong participation from existing investors Matrix Partners, Lightspeed Ventures and Verizon Ventures, alongside new investors Delta-v Capital, Golub Capital and Unusual Ventures.

CloudBees has previously raised $49.2 million since its founding in 2010, bringing total funding to date over $100 million. With the new funding, CloudBees will continue to innovate its modern software delivery suite, grow its strategic partnerships and accelerate its global business growth organically and through M&A.

“Today, virtually every company is using software to continuously improve its products and business,” said Matt Parson, CFO, CloudBees. “The DevOps market is exploding as the transformation to a global continuous economy emerges. We have seen significant growth in our business over the last several years, but we now see an even bigger opportunity just in front of us as continuous software delivery becomes a strategic imperative for every business.”

An estimated 2+ million software developers use Jenkins to automate their software delivery pipelines and 46 of Fortune 100 enterprises, including 3 of the Fortune 10, use the CloudBees Suite to transform their businesses for the continuous economy.

“In the few, short years since founding CloudBees, we have become the recognized DevOps leader. Global enterprises have rapidly adopted our DevOps suite due to its alignment with strategic business objectives and the enterprise-grade scale and governance demanded by today’s CIOs,” said Sacha Labourey, Founder and CEO, CloudBees. “We see a world where businesses either deliver faster and continually improve or they fail. Thanks to this new funding, we are accelerating on our vision to become the ERP of IT and orchestrate the key processes that bring innovation through software to production.”

Dan Williams, partner at Delta-v Capital, will join CloudBees’ board of directors. “CloudBees is executing on a vision that will revolutionize enterprise software delivery by allowing companies to automate the software delivery process and gain valuable insights into their DevOps data like never before,” said Williams. “DevOps is at an inflection point enabled by modern container-based infrastructure and driven by an increasing realization from enterprises that software is mission critical to their differentiation and innovation. We continue to be impressed by CloudBees’ market leadership position in DevOps and are excited to partner with their world-class team to help them achieve a greater trajectory.”

“The DevOps market has evolved to the point where it has become an imperative for businesses across all verticals and sizes to automate software delivery,” said Rob Sverbilov, director, Golub Capital Late Stage Lending. “CloudBees has emerged at the forefront of the DevOps market, helping the world’s industry-leading organizations accelerate their market growth in today’s digital economy. We look forward to supporting the company as they put our flexible financing to work to continue driving robust diversified global growth.”

Stas Zvinyatskovsky, Managing Director at Accenture, added: “Companies are looking to DevOps to be the engine that enables business agility. At Accenture, we help our clients adopt DevOps across the enterprise and collaborate with alliance partners such as CloudBees to offer our clients industry-leading DevOps technology that helps roll out the improved business capabilities that have become essential in a digital environment.”
