Global community-driven marketplace for code solutions- CodersClan has raised $820,000 in a seed round to expand its business in the global market by providing their customers with full developmental projects. This initiative was carried out after a steep demand from CodeCrunch’s Customers for full services. The company which is based in Tel Aviv, Israel currently has 6,000 coders in its service and has been providing solutions to small coding issues to its clients since its inception in 2013. The company is now looking step up to the big leagues and increasing the services it provides at the high response time that the company is known for. The investors include CrunchFund Entree Capital, Kima Ventures, Wix, Quixey and Clarity Ray.
The Company hires programmers based on their stack overflow reputation, their GitHub and their LinkedIn profiles. The company implements an automated dispatch system that matches the customers with the right coders. This way the customers can get their problems solved online in a short time without any hassle. With this new funding the company developers can outsource their larger project workloads to a team of coders across the globe with tools like Trello, Jira and Asana and produce efficient results in no time. While the company usually deals with web development using Rails, PHP, Node.js and WordPress, demand for solutions for iOS and Android application problems is also widely sought by clients of CodersClan. The company which took technical outsourcing to the next level will now further extend its horizons through this funding.
