New Orleans-based software and service company Align said Wednesday that it landed nearly $2.2 million in funding and plans to hire up to 30 people over the next 15 to 20 months.

The company plans to hire across software development, project management, marketing and sales positions for its cloud-based business operating system.

“This level of investment demonstrates confidence in the company, the product and the market opportunity,” CEO Doug Walner said in a statement.

New Orleans-based investors account for one-third of Align's recently-raised capital, Walner noted.

Founded in 2012, Align is a cloud-based business operating system designed to provide growing businesses with the framework and structure to meet company goals, according to Walner. “So many scaling businesses fall prey to poor process,” he said. “Our platform provides the tools to implement good business habits on an ongoing basis."
