If you have a coding question, chances are a Google search will take you to Stack Overflow. The programming-oriented Q&A website is the 45th most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Rank. “No other company or organization has the size of community that we have in the technology industry,” says CEO Prashanth Chandrasekar. “Every developer knows who we are.”
The Covid-19 pandemic’s shift to remote work has only bolstered Stack Overflow’s spot in engineering circles. From April to June, an average of 200,000 new users signed up each month, the best quarter in the 12-year-old New York City-based startup’s history, Chandrasekar says. With that demand has come more venture capital interest: Stack Overflow announced on Tuesday it has raised $85 million in a Series E funding round.
