Rainforest QA Raises $25M in Series B Funding
January 29, 2018

Rainforest QA raised $25 million in Series B funding, bringing the company’s total funding to $41.2 million.

Silicon Valley Bank, Bessemer Venture Partners, Sutter Hill Capital, Rincon Ventures, and Initialized Capital all participated in the round. Rainforest will use the new funds to accelerate sales and marketing and further expand its platform so development teams can assure the best possible user experience at the speed of continuous delivery.

“The way we build software has dramatically changed over the last 10 years, but development teams are still doing QA the same way,” said Fred Stevens-Smith, CEO of Rainforest. “We’ve spent the last five years helping hundreds of companies completely disrupt the old QA model and ship better digital products much faster. This new funding puts Rainforest in a great position to sustain our rapid growth and help even more companies get one step closer to delivering bug-free software at the speed of continuous delivery.”

“Rainforest QA’s rapid growth is a testament to the tremendous value they bring to even the world’s most advanced software companies,” said Byron Deeter, top cloud investor and partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. "Similarly to how Twilio has disrupted communications by leveraging the cloud, Rainforest is disrupting software development by solving quality assurance (QA), one of the major pain points for development teams today. This world-class team is enabling software companies to ship product faster and we are excited to continue to support their next stage of growth.”

Rainforest’s on-demand QA solution uses machine learning algorithms to constantly monitor results and testers for accuracy so that developers can focus on the highest value initiatives.
