About Humanitec

Humanitec is the market leader for Internal Developer Platforms.

The company helps ops teams from growing startups to enterprises build and run their own Internal Developer Platforms. Humanitec's unique approach relieves pressure on ops and boosts developer productivity.

Before Humanitec, building those Internal Developer Platforms was hard. It required significant budgets and time. Humanitec makes this process much easier while keeping you flexible along the way.

Humanitec helps you to enable your development teams to focus on delivering great software.
