Everyone at Armory works reasonable, flexible hours. We have a "Roundabout, not Stoplight" culture. We hire experts and give you the autonomy and support to do your best work. We push decision-making to the edges of our company and our managers are here to facilitate and unblock you, instead of telling you when you can (or can't!) stop/go/turn. Thriving at Armory requires individuals with a passion for leadership, who are self starting and driven to achieve the best outcomes. #DriversWanted!

We're a Series B startup backed by Insight, Y Combinator (W17), Bain Capital, Crosslink Capital, and Javelin Venture Partners based in San Mateo, Ca. We believe software is the highest leverage way to improve humanity. So we’re building a platform to help software teams ship better software, faster by commercializing Spinnaker (Netflix OSS), a next-gen immutable infrastructure CD platform that enables blue/green deploys, canaries & rollbacks.Our platform automates software delivery to make engineers happy and productive. This helps companies innovate faster, and win.
