US-based YourBase, a provider of developer productivity solutions, emerged from stealth mode by raising US$ 5 million in seed funding on 8 June 2021.
Investors: The funding round was led by Lightspeed Venture Partners with participation from Unusual Ventures and Fathom Capital.
Founded in 2018 by John Ewart and Yves Junqueira, YourBase is a software testing acceleration solution that helps scale software development in large codebases. It offers software testing acceleration built on a “Code Dependency Graph” which automates the test selection process for large, complex codebases. It makes it easy for developers to get instant feedback on their code and reduce the time and compute cost by up to 90 percent.
YourBase aims to allow developers to test their software in seconds, no matter how complex the codebase. Codebases become large and increasingly complex, as companies continue to grow, with more languages, frameworks and architectures to optimize for. As some companies choose to build in-house solutions to speed up their software development and test cycles, they end up putting strain on their teams. YourBase Test Acceleration relieves that stress and brings down the software testing time from hours to just minutes.
What the CEO has to say: “Enterprises today are in a race to build new products faster to meet customer demand. And developers need instant feedback when they change, merge and test their code—regardless of codebase complexity. Yet, only the Googles and Facebooks of the world are able to test at these speeds, while everyone else in the market is stuck with a hodge-podge of clunky tools that create bottlenecks in the development process. Our core mission with YourBase is to provide a powerful platform that any developer can leverage to test software without stress or friction.” — Yves Junqueira, CEO and co-founder of YourBase.
What the investors have to say: “Software testing acceleration is a $12 billion market, yet testing on large codebases remains one of the biggest challenges developers face today. If you’re not a Google or Microsoft, testing and making changes to software can be a painstakingly slow and inefficient task. That’s what drew us to YourBase. Their Code Dependency Graph technology is built for any company that wants to get products to market fast. We’re thrilled to welcome them to the Lightspeed family and look forward to supporting the team in their journey to be the leading player in the space.” — Raviraj Jain, Partner, Lightspeed Venture Partners.
