CloudBees Named to Wealthfront’s 2019 Career Launching Companies List
For the fourth consecutive year, the DevOps leader is highlighted as an ideal place for young people to start their careers
SAN JOSE, CA. — January 22, 2019 — CloudBees , the enterprise DevOps leader powering the continuous economy, today announced that it has been named to Wealthfront’s 2019 Career Launching Companies List for the fourth consecutive year. The list, in its seventh year, is a compilation of information technology companies considered the best places for young people to start their careers.
“It is an honor for CloudBees to again be included on Wealthfront’s Career Launching Companies List,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and co-founder of CloudBees. “In the past year, we’ve experienced significant growth and momentum, including our acquisition of CodeShip and a successful funding round. At the same time, we’ve remained focused on investing in our employees - at all levels - who are vital to our success as a company. Wealthfront has recognized us as being a great place to launch a career, but we are a great place to grow an existing career, too.”
Today, every business is a software business and is under pressure to constantly innovate. This increased velocity introduces new business risks. CloudBees is building the world’s first end-to-end automated software delivery system, enabling companies to balance governance and developer freedom.
To qualify for Wealthfront’s list of mid-sized companies with momentum, a company must be privately held, have a revenue run rate by year-end of between $20 million and $300 million, be on a trajectory to grow at a rate in excess of 50% for at least the next three or four years, and have compelling unit economics. The list is then built by surveying partners of the 14 premier venture capital firms: Accel Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark, DAG Ventures, Dragoneer, Greylock Partners, Index Ventures, Lightspeed , Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Matrix Partners , Ribbit Capital, Social Capital, Spark Capital and Tiger Global.
