Vancouver’s BuddyBuild announced today that they’ve raised a $1.2 milion round from Bloomberg Beta, First Round Capital, and Amplify Partners.
Angel investors Steve Garrity (Hearsay Social), Mike Vernal (Facebook), Dave Johnson (PhoneGap/Adobe), Douglas Purdy (Stealth/TBA), and Debbie Landa (Dealmaker) also participated in the round and Slack’s Stewart Butterfield has joined as a formal advisor.
Buddybuild is the world’s first mobile iteration platform for iOS and now Android app developers. It ties together continuous integration, continuous delivery and an iterative feedback solution into a single, seamless platform.
For app developers that means no more cobbling together disparate systems to meet their mobile development needs. With buddybuild, they can focus on what matters most: creating awesome apps.
Over 1600 apps have signed up to use Buddybuild and it has been used in over 80 countries in the last 45 days.
Buddybuild was co-founded by Dennis Pilarinos, Christopher Stott, and Johnny Ting Shi – all members of the Amazon Vancouver team that worked on the Silk web browser for the Kindle Fire tablet and Fire smartphone.
