AtomicJar has announced that it has closed a $4 million seed funding round led by boldstart ventures, with participation from other notable VCs and individual investors including Tribe Capital and Chalfen Ventures. AtomicJar will use the funding to grow the core developer team serving the Testcontainers community, build new enterprise features and functionality, and to extend the ecosystem of frameworks in the Java ecosystem that provide native integration testing with Testcontainer.

Other notable investors in AtomicJar’s seed funding round include Snyk co-founders Peter McKay and Guy Podjarny, Abby Kearns (ex-Pivotal, CTO, Puppet), Andrus Adamchik (Apache Software Foundation, ObjectStyle), Leonid Igolnik (ex-Oracle, SignalFX), Natalie Diggins (Managing Director, Madison Square Advisors), Dimitri Sirota (co-founder, BigID), Jevgeni Kabanov (co-founder, ZeroTurnaround), Zane Lackey (founder, Signal Sciences), Simon Maple (DevRel, Snyk), and Ian Livingstone (co-founder, Manifold.co and co-founder, Cape Privacy).

AtomicJar was founded by Richard North, the creator of the world’s most popular open source integration testing library, Testcontainers, and former principal engineer for developer experience at Skyscanner; and, Sergei Egorov, a co-maintainer of Testcontainers, Java Champion, Reactive Foundation TOC member, Apache Software Foundation committer, contributor to a variety of open source projects, and former staff engineer at Pivotal (acquired by VMware).

Anything that can run in a Docker container

It added, “North created Testcontainers in 2015 while chief engineer at Deloitte Digital. He observed that integration testing’s hopelessly complicated set-up–everything from creating consistent local setups, to configuring databases, and countless other issues–was a constant source of thrashing for developer teams that needed a reliable way to test their code against real production-like dependencies. ”

North built Testcontainers as an open source library that lets developers, directly from their test code, “test with containers” against everything from data stores and databases (e.g. Redis, PostgreSQL), to anything that can run in a Docker container (Kafka, RabbitMQ, Selenium, etc.).
