Moving on up

It’s time for a move. We’ve spent more than a year now in our current facilities and while they were a good starting point, we’ve definitely outgrown the space. Working in a building with a 120-year history has had its ups & downs but we cannot argue that the feeling of the past was very much alive and well within our office. Before leaving, we thought it best to list what we’ll miss (and what we won’t) about our old office.

Now Accepting Manny Money

Our platform moved out of Beta and into General Availability at the end of January. This was big news for us since we’ve been working hard with our heads down for a little over a year now.

Last night was the Boulder Startup Holiday Party and everyone was out in force to deck the halls. With a tree-decorating competition, a Toys for Tots gift donation and lots of adult beverages, there was no shortage of holiday cheer. VictorOps was proud to have been a sponsor of such fun. And in case it wasn’t glaringly obvious, we won the tree-decorating competition. Pretty sure…

The Real Story Behind the Oak Leaf

There is a lot of heavy-duty, heads down work going on at VictorOps right now. Much of it involves discussions around Scala, Akka, Play and the excitement of building our third large-scale service infrastructure from the ground up. VO is making amazing progress and the passion for the space is evident in every conversation and demo we do. Building another company enables you to do things differently than you did in the past. With VO, we had such a concrete idea of what we wanted…
