Cypress, an Atlanta, GA-based automated software testing startup, closed a $9.3m Series A funding.
The round was led by Bessemer Venture Partners. In conjunction with the funding, Mike Droesch (Bessemer Venture Partners) and Jason Warner (SVP of Engineering at Github) joined Cypress’ Board of Directors. Adam Gross (former CEO of Heroku) has also joined as an investor and advisor.
