WP Engine & The Future of Managed WordPress
Managed WordPress platform WP Engine has raised $23 million in a follow-on funding round, bringing the company's total funding to $41.2 million.
WP Engine will, according to the company, use the cash to continue its international growth and accelerate enterprise adoption of its products. The company, which was founded in 2010, says it already hosts upward of 300,000 sites and applications (including Pabst Brewing, AMD and Uber) in 128 countries.
“The last year saw amazing growth for WP Engine: we doubled the size of our team, opened our London and San Antonio offices, and launched innovative new products through our Labs,” said WP Engine CEO Heather Brunner in a statement today. “This funding will help us maintain that momentum and enhance our ability to invest in customer experience excellence, new innovations and better serve our growing roster of global customers.”
