Announcing our Series F funding and acquisition of Vamp

We are pleased to share that CircleCI has raised $100M in Series F funding! This will enable us to further invest in our product, our community, and our team. We also recently announced that CircleCI acquired Vamp, the first release orchestration platform, designed to make delivery risk-free. The acquisition paves the way for us to provide first-class release orchestration and continuous validation to our customers, natively within our platform.
