CircleCI is the software delivery engine for teams who want to ship software faster and with confidence.
We do this today by building the world’s best platform for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD). Ultimately, we plan to map every source of change for software teams, so they can accelerate innovation and growth.
Our platform was built by a team of DevOps experts who understand how critical CI/CD is to your entire development process and your entire business. The best software teams know that speed, focus, and consistency of delivery make the difference between good and great.
