The IT operations company PagerDuty filed its S-1 on Friday to go public.

PagerDuty, which was founded in 2009, helps alert employees when there are IT incidents.  In the last twelve months, it has generated a revenue of $107 million, seeing a 48% revenue growth. It now has over 10,000 customers.

PagerDuty will list its stock on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “PD.” The company, which has been backed by firms like Andreessen Horowitz, Accel, and Bessemer Venture Partners, was last valued at $1.3 billion after raising $90 million in Series D funding.

PagerDuty had already confidentially filed for its IPO, but because of the government shutdown in January, the government couldn’t review its prospectus.

For the fiscal year ending January 31, PagerDuty generated a revenue of $79.6 million. For that same year, it had net loss of $38.1 million.
