The company intends to use the new capital to scale its platform and operations to reach more developers worldwide.
Founded in May 2012 by Micha Hernandez van Leuffen, CEO, Wercker which aims to fill a gap in today’s software landscape where developers rely on cloud services like GitHub to store and version their code, and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) applications to deploy it.

Wercker also integrates a social networking element to the process so that developer team members can see what their colleagues are doing or have done.
It is currently running in private beta (http://beta.wercker.com)
Wercker was part of the 2012 Rockstart Accelerator startup incubator program based in Amsterdam, and most recently participated in Mozilla’s WebFWD program.
