Software development is central to every business.

We ensure it delivers the value you expect.

As a key driver of business success, engineering teams 
are no longer solely tasked with delivering features quickly and reliably. Engineering teams must deliver features that make a difference in the lives of their customers and create impact for their business.

We call this Impact-Driven Development.

Split provides an industry-leading Feature Delivery Platform™ which enables companies to embrace Impact-Driven Development across their engineering teams. 

We pair the speed and reliability of feature flags with data to measure the impact of every feature. By reducing development time, mitigating release risk, and quantifying impact, we free engineering teams to solve customer and business problems.

Built By Developers, For Developers

Split brings together a team that has built feature delivery platforms at enterprise-scale companies like LinkedIn and Salesforce.

Serving the World’s Leading Development Teams

As a key driver of business success, engineering teams 
are no longer solely tasked with delivering features quickly and reliably. Engineering teams must deliver features that make a difference in the lives of their customers and create impact for their business.
