Future of remote DevOps
The seed round was led by CRV with participation from angel investors at New Relic, Atlassian, LaunchDarkly, and Datadog. Max Gazor, General Partner at CRV said,
“We invested in Sleuth because we believe remote DevOps is the future, and this team is poised to deliver it. The best teams are now deploying multiple times a week or day, and are leveraging best-of-breed point solutions to manage their code, infrastructure, feature flags, and more. There is a real need in the marketing for systems to address this complexity.”
Sleuth also announced that with the funding, the team is planning to staff up our engineering team. Sleuth team’s current goal is to hit a number of long term product objectives, in particular expanding ecosystem footprint to integrate with a wide range of software tools and to be the best integrated DevOps tool on the market.
