Kubiya, a Palo Alto, CA-based conversational AI solution for DevOps teams, announced that it raised $6 million in Seed funding.
The round was led by Hyperwise Ventures, with participation from Pierre Lamond, Giora Yaron, and others.
The funding enables Kubiya to expand its go-to-market strategy, further extend its offering, and ultimately redefine DevOps processes in businesses of all sizes.
Kubiya's Conversational AI empowers organizational users with a self-service option, allowing them to express their intent in natural language and have the virtual assistant take appropriate action by automating simple and tedious tasks.
"Business workforces don't know what they don't know which is an impediment for a true self-service culture. This forces DevOps to remain involved at all times to manage the process and lend assistance. Facilitating a natural language interaction between humans and machines and converting their intent into actions effectively removes the dependency on the operator in the loop," said Amit Eyal Govrin, CEO and Co-Founder of Kubiya. "Kubiya's unique approach is poised to change how companies hire, train, staff and operate - especially as we move into the next generation of remote-first-workforces - we are quite literally refactoring the unit economics of DevOps."
Kubiya works with dozens of leading organizations, including Aston Martin, Earnin, ZenBusiness, and others.
As the company expands its customer community, Kubiya's conversation-based operations will be uniquely positioned to provide benchmarks and cross-organizational best practices that help shape industry standards.
