We’ve raised a $23M Series B to help us get to a world where all software is reliable

Robert Ross2021-08-10

At FireHydrant, we envision a world where all software is reliable, and we’re on a mission to help every company that builds or operates software get closer to 100% reliability. Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve raised $23 million to help us further our goal.

Over the last year and a half, it’s become clear that technology, especially software, has become an even more crucial part of our daily lives. Widespread outages, significant disruptions, and even minor bugs mean people can’t work, communicate, or even get things done. Software disruptions could turn our planned after-work binge-watching sessions with a cold beverage, and work notifications turned off, from sweet solitude to a soured state of mind. Or even more concerning in some extreme cases, it can mean people are unable to call emergency services. Software is now a keystone in many of our lives, and reliability is critical to keeping customers happy and the world “on.”

We have big plans with our new round of funding. We’ve set our course to include helping businesses and teams of all sizes better understand their service ownership and better communicate about disruptions. Consumers and customers don’t view reliability as an engineering problem, but as a company and brand problem. No one says “Stark Industries’ engineering team is having an outage”; they say “Stark Industries is having an outage.” We are helping companies elevate reliability from engineering to every individual across an organization.

A big thank you goes out to our investors who believe in us furthering our mission and vision. This round was led by Harmony Partners with participation from Salesforce Ventures, and included participation from our previous investors Work-Bench and Menlo Ventures. All of our investors share the same excitement we have about a more reliable software world.

To our customers and our growing FireHydrant team, thank you. We’re excited about where we’re going next.
