Build automation company Gradle has announced a $4.2 million venture round led jointly by True Ventures and Data Collective (DCVC). The company also joined the exclusive Heavybit group of companies in San Francisco. The goal of the financing is to build on a successful Enterprise business centered in Silicon Valley by releasing a commercial SaaS offering, Gradle.com.

“Our mission is to transform how software is built and shipped.” said Hans Dockter, CEO and Founder of Gradle Inc. “We are revolutionizing software delivery by making it a repeatable process with real-time actionable measurements, just like world-class manufacturing systems. The right VC backers, Heavybit’s program and community in San Francisco and the great additions to our executive team are key steps towards realizing this goal.”

Gradle’s momentum has attracted world-class talent, including Chief Product Officer Charles Warren, who previously served as SVP of Product Design at Salesforce.com and UX lead at Google for Social products. Charles comes to Gradle with a deep background in product design as a former practice lead at IDEO. Also joining the team is Chief Marketing Officer Miko Matsumura, formerly of Software AG, and a member of the original Sun Microsystems Java team. These executives join founder CEO Hans Dockter and founder CTO Adam Murdoch, who together have led the Gradle open source platform to its current success.
