Testim Raises $5.6M in Series A Funding From Lightspeed Venture Partners to Make Software Testing Autonomous
Lightspeed leads round to expand the adoption of self-learning test automation to web and mobile software; Gains momentum with enterprise companies, powering their transition to agile.
SAN FRANCISCO, November 2, 2017-- Testim.io, a provider of machine learning based test automation software secured $5.6 million in series A funding led by Lightspeed Venture Partners. In the last year, the company has raised a total of $8 million from early investors including Foundation Capital, Spider Capital and joined Heavybit. The funds will support Testim’s mission to help engineering teams make application testing autonomous and integrative to their agile development cycle.
“The sheer amount of cloud and mobile software is exploding. DevOps and quality assurance are the biggest bottleneck for R&D teams when it comes to releasing faster,” said Tal Morgenstern, Partner at Lightspeed. “Testim makes it easy for developers and testers to become automation experts, making quality an organization wide initiative and powering developers to own code quality. Its approach to autonomous testing is going to disrupt the market, shortening feedback loops from days to minutes.”
One of the biggest challenges teams face in delivering high quality software is the amount of time spent authoring and maintaining their automation scripts. Testim’s self-learning tests adapt to code changes, eliminating a big portion of maintenance overhead so they can spend more of their efforts on developing new capabilities as opposed to testing. Offering seamless integrations to the development stack like, JIRA, GitHub, Slack, Jenkins and many more, Testim’s customers such as Wix.com, NetApp and Walmart experience faster release cycles, increased test coverage and higher productivity.
“Testim’s slick user interface makes it easy for us to author stable tests without a steep learning curve,” says Albert Elrom, Head of QA for Wix.com. ”With Testim, we’ve created hundreds of tests across a dozen projects. On one of these projects, we were able to author 70 tests in less than 5 days, running them continuously with minimal maintenance. The team finished ahead of the scheduled timeframe.”
“Today, organizations are forced to trade off between quality and time to market. We’re here to change that,” says Oren Rubin, CEO of Testim. “By making all software testing autonomous, our customers will benefit from delivering better digital experiences through impeccable quality while releasing multiple times a day.”
Testim leverages machine learning for the authoring, execution and maintenance of automated test cases. We use dynamic locators and learn with every execution. The outcome is super fast authoring and stable tests that learn, thus eliminating the need to continually maintain tests with every code change. NetApp, Gett, Wix and others run over 300,000 tests using Testim every month.
