Once an entrepreneur, always an entrepreneur. After the successful $3.7 Bn sale of his startup AppDynamics, an application monitoring and software company, to Cisco in January this year, Jyoti Bansal is now quietly working on his next startup- a continuous-delivery start-up Harness.io as per a CNBC report.
Jyoti Bansal first made public the existence of the new start-up in a brief LinkedIn post two weeks ago, where he said, “We are looking for senior/principal software engineers (backend infrastructure, distributed systems, and machine learning) for my new stealth startup.”
As per a source close to the matter, the new startup is focused on automating the process of testing and then deploying updates to software, a practice known as continuous delivery. The product will be part of the broader category of Devops.
The Harness.io team includes founding engineer Raghvendra Singh, who previously spent four and a half years at AppDynamics, and VP Marketing Greg Howard, who was AppDynamics’ second marketing person. The team is looking for hiring more people in san Francisco.
As per the report, the startup is already working with some customers in beta. Inc42 has written to Jyoti Bansal for further details on the startup.
