Yet another great day at CloudBees: today, we are announcing that we have just raised 4m USD in a Series A round.

Investors include:

  • David Skok & Matrix Partners: I am very proud to have David as part of the team, he has done a terrific job at JBoss and he is not the kind of investor who only talks to you on quarterly board meetings, he is a  * doer* and truly proactively helps companies he invests in. You can read David’s remarkable blog posts on For Entrepreneurs.com.
  • Marc Fleury: I am also very proud to have my friend “marcf” onboard as an investor, especially since I know he is getting very active with his own venture: OpenRemote. (Funnily enough, both OpenRemote’s and CloudBees’ CEOs are located in Neuchâtel, Switzerland ;) )
  • Bob Bickel: Bob has been part of the CloudBees adventure since Day-One as a close advisor, so I am happy to see him invest in CloudBees – he wasn’t just being nice to me ;)
  • Michel Goossens: I met Michel back in the JBoss days when he joined the EMEA team to drive sales and marketing. Since then we have remained in close touch. Michel currently works at the fast growing Magento.

David and Bob will sit on CloudBees’ board. I’d also like to thank John Pearce for his help during that process.

Team, thank you for all of the work you’ve been doing to date, it has been a crazy pace – you are all amazing! Starting this week, new bees are joining our ranks, Lisa and Harpreet are going to help us on the marketing and product management fronts (happy kick-off in SFO!). And there is more coming, so stay tuned….

Onward,

Sacha
