Today, we are excited to share that GitPrime has reached a definitive agreement to be acquired by Pluralsight.
Like many founders, I became obsessed with solving a problem based on personal need and later discovered other people facing the exact same challenges. Back in 2014 I began looking for a way to more effectively lead software development teams with concrete data. Looking back, it was a lofty goal, and I am thrilled that the visibility and understanding we deliver has been transformational for companies around the globe.
From the earliest days the GitPrime team set out on a mission — to elevate engineering leadership with objective data and better visibility into people-side of engineering.
While much has changed over the past four and a half years, one thing remains the same. We’re still just as passionate about helping engineering teams reach their full potential.
Over the past year we have had the opportunity to get to know the Pluralsight team, and we could not be more excited about our partnership. Aaron, Nate, Heather and the rest of the Pluralsight team who have built a truly inspiring mission-driven company dedicated to democratize tech skills.
I consider ourselves to be very lucky to have met this incredible company that shares our values and shares our long term goals. The way they think about engineering leadership mirrors our own. They share our deep empathy and love for engineering as a profession, and they are committed to building products and tools that enhance the lives of programmers and empower them to reach their potential.
Pluralsight helps developers skill up, GitPrime helps you see if it’s actually working.”
Aaron Skonnard Pluralsight CEO
