QASymphony the leading software testing solution for mid-size and large enterprises announced today that it has closed $2.5MM in Series A funding. Led by Buckhead Investment Partners (BIP Capital), Poplar Ventures, and KMS Technology, this strategic investment will allow the company to further fund sales and marketing initiatives to accelerate its already rapid growth, including a close to 50% growth in Atlanta-based employees.
With this investment, Jamie Hamilton, a managing partner at BIP Capital, is joining the board of directors. Hamilton will bring exceptional expertise and experience working with B2B technology companies to help shape the future of this Atlanta-based company. “The team at QASymphony has proven their ability to meet the demands of a dynamic market by leading with innovation. We couldn’t be more pleased to add them to the BIP Capital portfolio,” stated Hamilton.
QASymphony’s deep understanding of agile methodology is a key part of their success. “While our product can be used in any type of software development process, it is most efficient with agile software development, the most accepted process for building software,” explained co-founder Josh Lieberman. The company’s cloud based test case management tool, qTest, tightly integrates with JIRA, the most popular ALM for agile teams.
“Of the 24 million software developers and testers globally, over half have implemented an agile methodology – and that number is rising,” QASymphony CEO David Keil said. “Despite this wide adoption by development teams, there has been a lack of innovative solutions in the area of agile software testing. That is a huge problem for many companies that we are uniquely able to solve.”
