Linear B, a Santa Monica, CA- and Tel Aviv, IL-based startup that provides software engineering leaders with actionable, objective insights into their engineering workforce, raised $1.6m in seed funding.
The round was led by Ariel Maislos.
The company intends to use the funds to evolve its product offering and to expand the team to support increased customer and product demand.
Co-founded in April 2018 by Ori Keren and Dan Lines, Linear B is a people-focused software team analytics platform that uncovers actionable, objective insights for continuous productivity improvement. By connecting to a customer’s code management service, the platform provides an analysis of code quality, methodology, team dynamics, and benchmarks each customer against the industry, giving priority-ranked improvement recommendations customized to each organization’s unique behavioral patterns.
Now available in private beta, the company invites software engineering executives to run a team productivity assessment for quantitative insights into both their engineering workforce and existing projects. Powered by a proprietary analytics engine, Linear B analyzes customer data from BitBucket, GitHub, and GitLab, providing engineering leaders with data-driven insights for continued growth and improved productivity.
The system is used by companies like Axonius, Best Practice Energy and Kanban Zone.
