About Depot

Est. 2022

Accelerating builds, automatically, so software teams can iterate more quickly and spend less time waiting.


Our philosophy

We believe that by accelerating the software build process, we can streamline the entire software development process, increasing developer happiness and unlocking new innovation.

We are building a next-generation, developer-first build platform that uses cloud compute to increase build speed and integrates with the existing ecosystem of container tools and services. Our goal is to eliminate compute bottlenecks, flatten learning curves, and empower developers to build faster.
