The world runs on software. Yet delivering changes to software remains massively complicated, highly manual, and risk-prone. At Harness, our mission is to simplify the entire software delivery process so that software engineering teams can move fast and ship code effortlessly without the fear of breaking things. That's why we're bringing the industry’s first Continuous Delivery-as-a-Service platform to the market.

Rishi leads research & development at Harness. Before co-founding Harness, Rishi worked at Apple for six years. He pioneered Continuous Delivery at Apple as platform architect responsible for Apple’s deployment automation (DevOps) platform, leading its product management, software engineering, and technology operations. Rishi was responsible for creating a highly scalable solution supporting thousands of concurrent deployments, but realized that the Continuous Delivery problem could only be solved through the careful application of machine learning and the elimination of custom scripting.
Prior to Apple, Rishi worked in various software engineering roles at companies including ETrade and Cisco.
