ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--DivvyCloud, the leading independent provider of security and compliance automation for cloud and container environments, today announced the opening of their new corporate headquarters in the Court House neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia. The additional office space was acquired in anticipation of the company doubling its employee headcount over the next 12 months.
“DivvyCloud was born and raised in Arlington, and we are thrilled to continue our growth trajectory in this county. Our people have powered our growth and we have designed our new headquarters to empower them to do their best work,” said Brian Johnson, CEO and co-founder of DivvyCloud. “Our new headquarters are in an ideal location, allowing us to tap into one of the most diverse groups of highly skilled, entrepreneurial talent pools in the nation as we expand our workforce.”
Located at 2111 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Virginia, DivvyCloud’s offices now span 13,000 square feet, a significant increase from the 2,000 square foot office it occupied in Rosslyn at the beginning of 2018. In this same time period, the company has grown from 20 to 55 local employees (an increase of 175 percent), and plans to reach at least 120 employees within the next year.
DivvyCloud is a local success story, as it was co-founded by Brian Johnson, CEO, and Chris DeRamus, CTO, who both live in Virginia. The company has raised $29 million in venture capital funding since 2013, including a growth round of $19 million led by Providence Strategic Growth in May 2019. DivvyCloud was founded with a vision of empowering enterprises to give developers the freedom to innovate through self-service access to cloud services while at the same time enhance security and compliance.
In a rapidly growing sector, DivvyCloud has emerged as a clear market leader, doubling its customer base over the last year including adding marquee customers Kroger, CoStar and Pizza Hut. Additional customers include 3M, Fannie Mae, Discovery Communications, GE, Twilio and Autodesk.
