Edify, a Portland, OR-based provider of software streamlining the technical onboarding process for engineers, raised 1.635M out of what could be a $2M seed funding round. The round was led by Flying Fish Ventures, joined by Atlassian Ventures (creators developer-centric tools Confluence and Jira), Portland Seed Fund, and angel investors Mat Ellis (founder of Cloudability), Luke Kanies (founder of Puppet and Clickety), Leigh Honeywell (founder of Tall Poppy), and several others active in the technology community.
The company, founded in 2020 by CEO Kristen Gallagher, is embracing the future of work by streamlining the technical onboarding process that engineers need to get up to speed and productive in a new work environment. Edify aims to solve one of the most critical issues in the engineering industry — remote technical onboarding. The closure of this funding round accompanies growth within the company as Edify appoints Kate Farmer as CTO and seeks new hires in engineering and developer advocacy. Edify’s product eddy is designed to accelerate onboarding for new engineers with an interactive interface, nested within Slack today and Microsoft teams soon.
The company intends to use the funds for engineering and product development efforts, including adding natural language processing to the bot along with enhanced usability and management capabilities for all customers.
