DevZero: Platform Launch, Seed & Series A Raise
Debo Ray and Rob Fletcher are cofounders of DevZero, and most recently worked together on Uber’s infrastructure and security teams. They also have extensive experience developing advanced DevOps tools for Meta, Twilio and Carta.
Debo and Rob are intimately familiar with the advantages that strong internal developer tooling offers, as the number of microservices has skyrocketed over the past few years. But these tools are limited to major enterprises, so they developed DevZero’s Developer Environment Platform, which empowers all devs to ship their applications faster by writing and testing code in environments that are exactly like production.
Debo and Rob approached Owen Media looking for press exposure for their platform launch. We coupled the announcement with a $26M Seed & Series A funding round, and secured coverage in TechCrunch, GeekWire, SiliconANGLE and more:
