Dev-friendly mabl raises $20M to accelerate innovation

Boston-based mabl raised $20 million in funding this week. If you’re unfamiliar, mabl’s software makes test automation super easy for developers. There’s no infrastructure to maintain, the testing is integrated with regular workflows, and users can quickly assess any anomalies like broken links or Javascript errors. GV led the round, and mabl will use the funding to accelerate innovation and ramp up its sales efforts. [FinSMEs]
