StackMob — the cloud-based platform for developing, deploying and managing mobile applications — has closed a $7.5 million round of funding led by Trinity Ventures. Existing investors, Harrison Metal and Baseline Ventures, also participated.
Currently in private beta, StackMob said it will use the new money to grow the team, expand its product and support additional platforms.
Those unfamiliar should know that StackMob’s platform allows developers to build, deploy and manage feature rich mobile applications faster and easier than ever before. The service offers a suite of backend services designed for quick implementation, allowing developers to shortcut the infrastructure-building process from months to hours or minutes. In other words, StackMob enables developers to spend less time worry about the backend development, and more time creating “differentiating value in their applications.”
Commenting on the news, StackMob’s CEO and co-founder Ty Amell said: “StackMob streamlines mobile application development by drastically reducing time to market and backend headaches. Today’s funding validates the market opportunity for a simple, powerful and complete solution that can help developers avoid the frustrations that come with developing mobile applications. We are excited to be backed by seasoned investors with proven experience in growing leading cloud companies.”
