Glint, a Redwood City, California-based provider of a real-time employee engagement platform, raised $15.5m in venture capital funding.
The round was led by Norwest Venture Partners and Shasta Ventures with participation from angel investors Ev Williams, the co-founder and CEO of Medium and former chairman and CEO of Twitter. In conjunction with the funding, Jeff Crowe, a managing partner at Norwest Venture Partners, and Jason Pressman, a managing director at Shasta Ventures, joined Glint’s board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to continue product development and scale up its marketing, sales and customer success teams.
Glint has just launched a cloud-based real-time employee engagement platform whose analytical capabilities allow companies like FICO, Marketo and others to identify and measure their key drivers of engagement and take directed action. It is available through an annual software-as-a-service subscription model.
