It’s my great pleasure to unveil something we’ve been working on for the last little bit, 3 simple announcements from my company:
We announced this morning some really exciting news, parts of which have been previously unearthed by Venture Beat, Xconomy, and the WSJ. Involver has taken 8 Million dollars in additional financing from our investors, including Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP), Western Technology Investment, and Cervin Ventures. While we are currently profitable, this capital will help us more quickly meet ambitious goals for our products and our team. In fact we plan to hire 130 people, including 80 engineers, in the next 15 months.
Along with this endeavor, we’ve refreshed our brand. You can see our new wordmark below, it’s one of many aesthetic changes. I’d love to share more about this process later, and perhaps we’ll do so, but what’s important is that we now have a gorgeous site with way more product information, functionality, and other “about involver” stuff. Go check it out.
Finally, we’re also announcing some pretty impressive growth numbers. We now serve over 100,000 customers, have deployed 200,000 applications and interact with over 325 Million fans. Our scale is unmatched in the industry and speaks volumes about the types of technical challenges we’re tackling. If you’re interested in helping us tackle those challenges and increase those numbers by two orders of magnitude, you should apply.
