Testlio raises $6.25M to widen its testing-as-a-service empire

Mobile testing startup Testlio today announced it raised a $6.25 million circular of funding led by Altos Ventures and Vertex Ventures. The company is aiming to create it simple to do QA for mobile app developers, making it easier to test their apps on a variety of devices in a variety of circumstances. The company also plans to move beyond purely mobile testing.

Testlio can be best seen as a managed testing-as-a-service platform; the company takes ownership of the test map management, sources staff from their global network of quality assurance testers and delivers validated, high-quality bug reports for issues found.

They create it sound easy.

The benefit of the company is obvious. In addition to having an elastic crew of testers at your disposal, the geographical distribution of the company’s testers is a boon: true real-world testing performed across the matrix of vast geographies, languages, device types and telecom providers is crucial to getting resilient applications.   

Testlio is profitable, and is growing rapidly: In two thousand-fifteenth, the company grew by more than five hundred percent. The new funds will be invested in building out infrastructure across its two locations in San Francisco, CA and Tallinn, Estonia.

Today’s announcement comes just over a year after the company raised their $1 million seed round.

“We partner closely with some of the most demanding companies in the world,” said Kristel Viidik, CEO of Testlio, who revealed that as the funding hits the bank account, the company is starting to look beyond the world of mobile apps. “We are expanding our service beyond mobile app testing so that we can continue to meet the changing needs of our customers presently and in the future.”
