Budapest-based Bitrise founders Barnabás Birmacher, Viktor Benei, Daniel Balla just announced yesterday a $20 million Series B investment, led by Partech and joined by new investor Zobito, with participation of their existing investors OpenOcean, Y Combinator, and Fiedler Capital.
“I’m thrilled to have Partech and Zobito on board: It’s amazing to see how their support is already accelerating our ability to address real challenges for mobile developers. I’m especially grateful to OpenOcean, Y Combinator, and Fiedler Capital for reinvesting: It shows continued commitment to the mission and speaks to their belief in the platform, the team, and the problem we’re solving.
I’m also thankful for the incredible group of people working on Bitrise day in day out, and the tens of thousands of developers that trust us with their mobile development processes. We honestly wouldn’t have gotten where we are today without you.” said Barnabás in his blog post.
Founded in 2014, Bitrise enables mobile developers to create automated workflows for the non-coding part of their development process. The developer connects a service like Github or Bitbucket to Bitrise, and based on their chosen triggers, the platform can then automatically build their application, send it to a testing service or even submit it directly to the app stores.
