LaunchDarkly is the feature management platform that software teams use to innovate faster, reduce risk, and break down the barriers between developer, product, marketing and sales.

LaunchDarkly is creating an entirely new category called feature management.

LaunchDarkly was founded in 2014 by Edith Harbaugh and John Kodumal. The company is headquartered in Oakland, California, with offices in New York City, Sydney, Australia, and an engineering hub in London, UK.

LaunchDarkly's vision is to eliminate risk for developers and operations teams from the software development cycle.

LaunchDarkly serves over 100 billion feature flags daily to help software teams build better software, faster. Feature flagging is an industry best practice of wrapping a new or risky section of code or infrastructure change with a flag. LaunchDarkly is used by teams at Atlassian, Microsoft, CircleCI, IBM, TrueCar, and fuboTV.


LaunchDarkly is backed by Bessemer Venture Partners, Threshold Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Uncork Capital, Vertex Ventures, Bloomberg Beta and others. The company raised $54M in a latest financing on Jan 16, 2020. This brings LaunchDarkly's total funding to $130.3M to date.
