Tesstim.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.
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.
