The Builders of DevRev

DevRev was founded by Dheeraj Pandey, former CEO of Nutanix and Manoj Agarwal, former executive at Nutanix. Dheeraj founded Nutanix and led the company to the biggest technology IPO in 2016. Last year, both Dheeraj and Manoj left the company to found DevRev. We recently announced our seed funding, one of the largest ever in the history of Silicon Valley.

In addition to the co-founders, the other founding members of the company have profound design and AI experiences in building intelligent, distributed systems for planet-scale operations.

A lot of developers today start their days by looking at the list of issues and bug fixes and thinking about which ones to tackle first. Often, the code they end up writing or modifying has little or no significance to how customers use the product and features. DevRev's bold, yet simple vision to bring the developers closer to the customers is one of those groundbreaking ideas we feel will affect every single company in the future.

Technology decisions are moving from a Return on Investment model to the Rise of the Individual, the new “ROI” model. DevRev addresses the fundamental question of how to empower and elevate the future individual developer — to become truly business-focused — as conscious entrepreneurs who connect their work to revenue, end users, and markets.

Dheeraj and I spent a whole decade building a new category that brought such delight to Nutanix customers, and eventually to its shareholders who participated in the massive business model shift to subscription. I am looking forward to this empty canvas of DevRev, in how it canonicalizes yet another business model: PLG.

They say software is eating the world. I feel software without the yin-yang of AI and design will have very little impact in improving broken customer relationships. And without the developers, we can’t keep throwing enough managers and dashboards at the problem of customer churn. We need to bring creators out of the back office.

The key to value creation in business (as in everything else) is empathy. DevRev’s transformative approach leverages data, design, and AI to apply this insight where it matters most: towards eliminating the social distance between makers and users. It is a business model that situates the core drivers of value — developers & revenue generating customers — at the center of everything, not just in rhetoric, but in practice.

I believe that talent is global and not confined to a specific city or region. I believe that talent is diverse across every dimension that defines us as humans. I believe the best leaders are able to bring together global, diverse teams and inspire them to become a team that’s greater than the sum of the parts, and to do their best work. DevRev is one such place that brings all of these together and I am incredibly excited to be part of this journey.

Designing something that genuinely changes peoples' lives in meaningful ways requires having a deep empathy for users. Combine this with data and the ability to communicate with your end users in real time, and now you have a compelling product and customer experience. This is the core of DevRev thinking.

Product-Led Growth (PLG) will be the de facto business model for SaaS this decade. DevRev shows the way of how to build a delightful product that is inherently “internet-led” from the get-go. It shines light on a whole new process of building and driving customer experiences.

India is becoming a powerhouse of SaaS developers, and they’re quite customer-aware and jugaad-savvy. I want DevRev to create happy developers, and more importantly, cater to an increasingly diverse talent pool that is building code and growing businesses. Having engaged with the team at DevRev over the last few months, I am floored by their passion to solve a complex problem simply and at scale.

Business model. Business model. Business model. That’s what I learned from the Nutanix transition, and burn the midnight oil on at Clumio. There was on-prem and now there’s the cloud. For Clumio to be a next-generation company, I look forward to how my developers lean in on all things PLG.

Engineers and developers are constantly seeking meaningful connections to users of their products. It is my strong belief that to build more effective solutions, critical need exists for mechanisms that break silos between creators and the users. I look forward to DevRev’s maker-consumer APIs and social experiences in how they bring these passionate, connected creators closer to their users.

CEO, ThoughtSpot

PLG has taught us how developers and code are at the center of customer experience. Seeing developers in action — in the way they operate, support, and grow our customer base — is immensely satisfying. I look forward to the bold vision of DevRev and its APIs in helping our makers become true merchants of SaaS.
