on 2017/11/1 7:56:42 (1210 reads)

GitLab, a software product used by 2/3 of all enterprises, has announced $20 million in series C funding led by GV at more than double the valuation of last year's B round. In addition, Matt Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, has joined the GitLab board to support the company’s mission to develop a seamless, integrated product for modern software developers and become the application for software development in Kubernetes.

As our world continues to become more software-defined and developers transform into the DevOps role, they need tools that accelerate workflow and simplify the development process. Since its incorporation in 2014, GitLab has shifted the software development process by transforming it into a seamless and collaborative conversation among developers. GitLab will use the funding to evolve the world of DevOps by offering both application development and operations. Where other products are focused on the intersection of Dev and Ops, GitLab will be the first single product to offer the union of Dev and Ops. GitLab will add new functionality for packaging, releasing, configuring, and monitoring software. More about this will be revealed in the live broadcast that will begin today at 10 a.m. PT and can be viewed here.

Leading open source innovator, Matt Mullenweg joins GitLab’s board of directors to help drive the company’s long-term success as it continues to disrupt the developer ecosystem. Mullenweg, known as the father of open source, will bring his experience founding multiple companies including WordPress, to help guide GitLab’s open source strategy.

“GitLab’s powerful momentum and scaling have a lot of parallels to Automattic and WordPress in their early days,” said Matt. “WordPress had to battle a lot of competitors, and ultimately came out on top as a successful company on an open source business model. I hope to help GitLab achieve the same triumph. Fundamentally, I want to help create the kind of internet that I want to live in and I want my children to live in, one that reaches a global audience and one that is able to make a difference.”
