“It’s been a busy start to the year here at CircleCI. We are growing quickly with roughly 75 new hires, two new office openings and dozens of new customers coming on board,” says Jim Rose, CircleCI CEO. “I’m thrilled with the additions to our executive team and believe with their strategic guidance we are poised to make major gains on the ambitious goals we have set for ourselves and for the market overall.”
