  • Kobiton, an Atlanta-based mobile testing platform that helps developers test their apps on real devices using the open-source Appium automation framework, today announced that it has raised a US$5.2 million Series A round.
  • The round was led by BIP Capital, with support from seed investors KMS Technology and Kinetic Ventures, as well as BetterCloud executive chairman Jon Hallett, former Infor COO Ken Walters and Kevin Lee, the CEO of Kobiton.
  • Previously, the company raised US$3 million in seed funding.
  • KMS Technology actually incubated Kobiton before it was spun out into its own company in 2016.
  • Current customers include Cap Gemini, Frontier Airlines, GreenSky, Office Depot and Q2.
  • One thing that sets Kobiton apart from other on-device testing services like Microsoft’s App Center Test Cloud, the AWS Device Farm and Google’s Firebase Test Lab is that it offers a cloud-based lab but also allows you to test set up your own private and local labs as needed.
  • In total, Kobiton supports more than 350 devices and, of course, provides detailed logs for all tests, including full video, screenshots, system metrics and more.
  • Like most companies at this stage, Kobiton plans to use the new funding to expand its sales, marketing, customer support and product development efforts.
  • On the product side, a lot of that work will go into the “record and playback” tools.
