Coder, a cloud-based platform for software development, closed a $30 million Series B funding round led by existing investor GGV Capital, with participation from Redpoint Ventures, Uncork Capital, and In-Q-Tel.
As part of the financing, GGV Capital Managing Partner Glenn Solomon will join the Coder Board of Directors.
To date, Coder has raised $43 million and has a team of about 25 employees. The company plans to use the new funds to support its “aggressive hiring plan” and further innovate its product.
Coder was founded by Ammar Bandukwala, Kyle Carberry, and John Andrew Entwistle with the simple goal of helping developers write more code. Coder Enterprise automates the time-consuming, manual processes involved in creating and configuring development environments and enables engineers to work from anywhere and focus on writing code.
“Coder’s mission is to make software developers happier,” said Carberry. “We do this by automating away the configuration and maintenance of development environments, letting developers focus on their code,” added Bandukwala. “In today’s rapidly changing environment, it’s more important than ever to give engineers the ability to stay productive from anywhere in the world. We’re thankful for our investors and look forward to helping our customers continue to drive innovation,” concluded Entwistle.
