Arpad Kun, VP of Engineering and Infrastructure at Bitrise, talk about cloud strategy, company culture and new challenges in the world of mobile apps and DevOps. Bitrise is a full-featured mobile CI/CD in the cloud. They create an end-to-end platform for mobile development that automates core workflows, shortens release cycles and provides a better understanding of how new pieces of code will affect live apps before their release. Why do Bitrise use the multi-cloud strategy and how do they find balance? How do they manage and invest in fast-scaling teams around the world? Listen to what Arpad has to say about a mobile DevOps company with a cute cat.
As more of the world shifts to doing everything from their smartphones, the ability to build better iOS and Android apps has to move with it. Bitrise aims to be the go-to company closing the gap between that mobile demand and a company’s ability to get apps out faster while also balancing all of the moving parts and complexities.
Two years ago, Bitrise, headquartered in Budapest, went through Y Combinator’s Growth Program to scale its company, and has now tripled its headcount and opened offices in London, San Francisco, Boston and Osaka. Bitrise announced $60 million in Series C funding in late 2021, led by Insight Partners, with participation from existing investors Partech, Open Ocean, Zobito, Fiedler Capital and Y Combinator.
