Enshored opens its third Manila office to match rapid client growth

Reception at Enshored’s new office

We are really excited to further increase our footprint in Ortigas, and in the JMT building. We can see that Ortigas is a prime location for attracting top talent, and the transportation and amenities there are superior to many other locations in Metro Manila. – CEO Ian Jackson

LONG BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) January 21, 2020
ENSHORED OPENS ITS THIRD MANILA OFFICE TO MATCH RAPID GROWTH OF CLIENTS
“Opening our third office in Manila will make sure we can keep up with the growth coming both from existing and new clients.”
Enshored is excited to announce the opening of its third operations center in Ortigas, Metro Manila, in The Philippines. Enshored has signed another lease for over 8000 Sq Ft of space in the JMT building on ADB Avenue. The newest office will start operating by the end of January 2020.
Enshored has been successfully operating from two offices in Ortigas and with over 700 employees. One of these is also in the JMT building, where Enshored have been working since the summer of 2016.
2019 saw Enshored once more double its headcount through continued growth from existing and new clients and by late summer it was clear a third office was needed. A number of new and existing buildings, within and outside Manila, were assessed for their suitability and compliance.
CEO Ian Jackson commented, “We are really excited to further increase our footprint in Ortigas, and in the JMT building. We can see that Ortigas is a prime location for attracting top talent, and the transportation and amenities there are superior to many other locations in Metro Manila.”
Country Manager Miguel Enriquez added, “We are confident that we’ll continue to improve our service delivery as well as our recruitment efforts. To have the newly renovated recruitment hub in the same building also will surely support the capacity concerns of our large clients in the US.”
Operations Director Ryan Pakingan shared, “One of the real values that I see in having an expanded office within the same vicinity is the accessibility for our people. With this setup, our leadership and management team can easily move between offices as needed and be able to capitalize on this really favorable to us operationally.”
Growth at Enshored is coming from both existing as well as new clients. Headcount at the fast-growing company has been increasing rapidly, after the 102% growth in 2019.
About EnshoredEnshored LLC is an outsourcing firm purpose-built to solve the challenges related to scaling disruptive, high growth businesses, delivering proven results by employing our unique agile operating framework and the most highly skilled associates in the industry.

LaunchDarkly Raises $54 Million for Rapid Expansion of Feature Management Platform

LaunchDarkly pioneered the category of feature management and has quickly become the de facto standard to reliably deploy software at scale…

OAKLAND, Calif. (PRWEB) January 16, 2020
Funding to further develop its feature management platform to accommodate the surge in demand.
LaunchDarkly, the feature management platform software teams use to build better software faster, announced today $54 million in additional funding led by Bessemer Venture Partners from their Century Fund for growth-stage companies, with participation from Threshold Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Uncork Capital, Vertex Ventures and Bloomberg Beta. With this vote of continued confidence, LaunchDarkly has received a total of $130 million in funding to date.
The investment will be used to address the surge in demand LaunchDarkly has seen for its feature management platform. Companies like IBM, TrueCar, and fuboTV are using LaunchDarkly to control feature lifecycles, eliminate risk from deployment processes, and increase efficiency throughout development cycles.
“LaunchDarkly pioneered the category of feature management and has quickly become the de facto standard to reliably deploy software at scale,” says Ethan Kurzweil, partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. “We are excited to support Edith, John and the LaunchDarkly team as they invest in transforming the way that software is built and launched, allowing companies to be more nimble and product-driven.”
In 2019, the company served more than 1 trillion features flags a day for more than a thousand customers, an increase of 500% over 2018. The spike was driven by the increasing pressure companies are experiencing to move quickly, innovate faster, and deliver exceptional user experiences. This demand is expected to continue as more teams strive to deliver these results without sacrificing quality or efficiency.
“Dynamic feature management is rapidly becoming the next big innovation in software development, allowing companies of all sizes to ship code faster with less risk,” says Josh Stein, Managing Partner of Threshold Ventures. “It’s been amazing to see the impact LaunchDarkly is having, and we’re excited to see how the platform and the team continue to grow in 2020.”
In April 2019 LaunchDarkly held its first conference, Trajectory Conference, in downtown Oakland. Attendees heard talks from industry leaders from organizations like Slack, Microsoft, Datadog, AWS, and IBM. LaunchDarkly will host the Trajectory Conference again on April 29-30, 2020.
LaunchDarkly continues to improve its core platform, including offered add-ons to core feature management functionality:
Experimentation – enabling teams to test ideas in production
Data Export – empowering teams to extract data into external analysis tools
Mobile Monthly Active User Packs – for feature management on mobile devices
The team has added multiple new languages, including Roku and C/C++, and enhanced integrations with GitHub, HashiCorp, and Slack.
“LaunchDarkly is creating an entirely new category called feature management,” says Scott Raney, General Partner at Redpoint Ventures. “Edith, John, and the team are solving some of the most difficult problems developers and product teams face and we couldn’t be more excited to continue on this journey!”
LaunchDarkly will also continue to invest in expanding its team. In 2019 LaunchDarkly grew its team in its Oakland headquarters, opened a sales and customer success hub in New York City, and hired sales, customer success, and developer advocates across North America. In 2020 LaunchDarkly will open sales offices in Sydney, Australia, and an engineering hub in London, UK.
About LaunchDarklyFounded in 2014 by Edith Harbaugh and John Kodumal, LaunchDarkly is the feature management platform that software teams use to build better software, faster with less risk. Development teams use feature management as a best practice to separate code deployments from feature releases. With LaunchDarkly, teams control their entire feature lifecycles from concept to launch to value. Serving over 1 trillion feature flags a day, LaunchDarkly is used by teams at Atlassian, Microsoft, and CircleCI. Learn more at https://launchdarkly.com.
