With everything just a click away, technology enabled businesses no longer are able to stick to the traditional nine to five workday. That's why VictorOps created a platform to help teams find the problem and address it collaboratively, no matter where they are, what device they're using, or what time of day it is.
Founded in 2012 by Todd Vernon, Bryce Ambraziunas, and Dan Jones, VictorOps alerts the right team when there's a problem, and provides the space for them to prepare, react, and recover from the incident. By integrating enterprise monitoring systems, the platform routes incident alerts to the correct team for real-time responses—via text, email or phone call. During the incident, the platform allows teams to chat remotely with either their built in chat tool or outside chat platforms such as Slack. The platform also allows incidents to be annotated and linked, with a report creation function within VictorOps so teams can learn and continuously adapt from each incident.
They call themselves the "Swiss Army Knife of DevOps" for a reason: their platform has everything necessary for a complete, live view of the system. From data, alerting, and remediation functionality so that collaboration and problem solving happens in real time.
The three founders, all passionate technologists, have over a combined 30 years of DevOps experience and know what it's like to have to keep everything running smoothly 24/7. With their past experiences, they were able to build the product they really needed—a better way to manage issues and support technical teams.
VictorOps has raised a total of $33.7 million from investors, with their most recent round in December 2016 bringing in $15M, according to Crunchbase. Recent recognitions of their success include being named a top workplace by Outside Magazine, receiving a 2017 Impact Award, and being one of the main sponsors for Puppet Conference 2017, an upcoming conference that aims to "encourage attendees to thrive in today's software-driven world."
