CircleCI raises US$31million in Series C fundraising round

CircleCI raises US$31million in a Series C fundraising round, to enhance speed and delivery processes of software and app modifications.

The San Francisco-based company, which offers tools for companies seeking to speed up the process of developing their own software, will be investing its money in “prediction and intelligent automation”.

The firm lets customers choose whether to keep the process on proprietary machines or to operate a collaborative app-building process in a web-based environment, according to Xconomy.

Catching bugs ‘quickly and securely’

CircleCI CEO Jim Rose wrote in an e-mail to Xconomy: “Our philosophy is to provide full API endpoints to every part of the CI system such that customers can use any tools they desire.

“We also integrate with GitHub, Bitbucket, Slack, Jira, AWS, Google Cloud, Azure, Heroku, etc.”

The platform also catches bugs “quickly and securely”, testing the elements of an application as they’re produced, instead of combining elements at a later stage.
