Founded in 2004, Pluralsight, Inc. (NASDAQ: PS) is an enterprise technology skills platform that delivers a unified, end-to-end learning experience for businesses across the globe.

GitPrime, the leading developer productivity platform, aggregates data from git repos, ticketing systems, and pull requests and transforms them into easy to understand insights and reports.

With Pluralsight, technology leaders can benchmark the talent of their teams, empower team members to develop new skills, and measure the proficiency of their team members through Skill and Role IQ. With the addition of GitPrime, they now have visibility into the application of those skills and the results they produce. Together, Pluralsight and GitPrime are creating an entirely new way to measure and improve developer productivity and performance, solving an age-old problem that has plagued technology leaders for decades.
