By Amit Chowdhry ● January 18, 2021
  • Engineering Management Platform company Jellyfish announced it has raised $31.5 million in a Series B round of funding led by Insight Partners. These are the details.

Engineering Management Platform company Jellyfish announced it has raised $31.5 million in a Series B round of funding led by Insight Partners and joined by previous investors Accel and Wing Venture Capital. And Jellyfish plans to utilize this latest investment to accelerate its mission of helping engineering leaders connect their team’s day-to-day operations to business priorities, elevating engineering leaders from executors to influencers of business strategy.

Jellyfish gained momentum last year as revenue increased by 5x and it doubled the employee count. As the COVID-19 pandemic has been contributing to a global transition to remote work, engineering leaders from companies like DataRobot, Skillsoft, and ZoomInfo turned to the platform to gain visibility into what their teams are working on and how it aligns with the priorities, needs, and strategic initiatives of the company.

The investment enables Jellyfish to scale its customer base as it becomes the Engineering Management Platform of choice for modern technology companies. And with the support of investors Insight Partners, Accel, Wing Venture Capital, Pillar VC, and First Star Ventures, the company plans to expand its team across all areas of the business in 2021.

KEY QUOTES:

“Jellyfish’s impressive growth signals that there is a crucial market need for an informed, data-driven approach to engineering leadership. Companies spend millions of dollars on engineering resources with little understanding of where it’s being spent or how resources are being allocated. Jellyfish is the clear leader in solving this, and we’re excited to partner with them as they seize this massive market opportunity.” 

— Matt Gatto, Managing Director at Insight Partners, who will join the Jellyfish Board of Directors

“We are thrilled to welcome Insight to the Jellyfish family to scale our mission. Today, most executives have easy access to data to inform business decisions. But engineering insights for business decisions are still scarce, even in a world where software development has become the foundation of modern business. We’re on a mission to change that with the Engineering Management Platform that allows engineering leaders to enable the strategic conversation, adding to product strategy and overall company direction.”

— Andrew Lau, Co-Founder and CEO at Jellyfish

“Jellyfish allows us to take a data-driven approach to engineering management. Instead of relying on anecdotal information and manual data collection, we now have a real-time, holistic view of how the team is spending their time to ensure they’re aligned with the strategic direction and needs of the organization. We can scale with confidence, knowing we’re investing in areas that add strategic value to the business.”

— Madhav Nair, Senior Vice President of Engineering at ZoomInfo
