Codeship secures $7M in Series A, aims to improve Docker workflows

Massachusetts-based Codeship, a secure hosted continuous delivery platform that helps software companies to update their applications has closed its Series A Funding of $7 million led by Ascent Venture Partners along with the inclusion of previous investors Sigma Prime Partners, Boston Seed Capital and F-Prime Capital. The company aims to use the funds to add new features to its automation service, and to improve the docker workflows with its secured platform. In total, Codeship has raised $11.1 million. Ascent General Partner Luke Burns will take a seat on the company’s Board of Directors. Moritz Plassnig, CEO of Codeship, said:
“We’ve positioned Codeship as an attractive investment, especially through the launch and subsequent expansion of our Docker initiatives, which have aligned the company with a hugely successful technology. In addition, our increased focus on enterprise clients has generated a significant influx of new users, each of whom have seen dramatic reductions in the amount of time it takes to move new products into production.”
Founded in 2011, Codeship has introduced “Jet”, a tool for docker that allows developers to customize test environments based on Docker Compose, promoting parity in development, test and production environments. Codeship offers to easily recover docker images from a company’s registry and run tests and build steps at the same time. It enables users to modify workflows as per their requirements. “During our diligence, we were struck by the frequent praise that customers lavished on Codeship’s ease of use, speed, flexibility and unparalleled customer support. Mo and team keep their focus squarely on satisfying the needs of development teams, large and small, and I’m excited to partner with them as they continue to innovate as leaders in this high growth market,” said Luke Burns. In a blogpost Plassnig stated, “We believe continuous integration and delivery are essential practices for an efficient software development workflow. These are concepts that have changed how software development teams work together in how they create new software and new applications. They’re about how to deliver value to your users and how to get your code out there to get it used by others. Doing all that at scale can be hard.”
