In 2011, BugHerd burst on to the scene as one of the up and coming Australian startups. 8 years later, the gloss has worn off a little (and we didn’t quite make the unicorn club), but what is left is a resilient SaaS product that is in the process of completing a remarkable turnaround.

Today BugHerd is profitable and growing strongly with a loyal group of customers and a team of people committed to making BugHerd great.
