Lenses.io, an open-source data operations (DataOps) software platform, raised $7.5 million in Series A funding.
83North, a venture capital firm with over $1 billion under management, led the financing round with participation from existing investor Marathon Venture Capital.
As part of the investment Laurel Bowden, Partner at 83North will join the Lense.io board of directors.
Lenses.io launched its flagship DataOps product in early 2018 and has experienced rapid customer adoption, including multiple Fortune 500 companies such as Babylon Health, Daimler, Zopa, Playtika, and SAS Software.
“We built Lenses to enable people to create and curate data experiences in real-time. Our customers make DataOps an embedded business practice by applying it on emerging technologies such as Apache Kafka and Kubernetes,” said Antonios Chalkiopoulos, founder and CEO of Lenses.io, in a statement.
The company plans to use the funds to accelerate product development and scale operations in Europe and the US to meet growing international demand.
