Swimm, an Israeli startup that helps firms ensure that their documentation is always up to date, raised $27.6 million in a Series A round of fundraising led by New York-based global venture capital and private equity firm Insight Partners. This raise brings Swimm’s total investment to date to $33.3 million.

The company has also launched an open beta, which it says grants free access to any team that wants to use Swimm’s platform to create continuous documentation and promote development velocity and agility.

Swimm helps engineering teams better understand their code, through knowledge building and continuous, auto-synced documentation. The company boasts that with its system, “Continuous Documentation becomes an integral part of the development lifecycle.” The platform allows engineers to build documentation that includes “live” snippets from the codebase that auto-sync with changes. This incorporates the creation and maintenance of code documentation into the development workflow.

Swimm says that its technology can help teams simplify the process of creating, finding and maintaining relevant documentation as part of the existing development workflows. Swimm pledges to make sure that documentation is always up-to-date by introducing “live” code snippets that auto-sync with changes to the codebase.

The money from investments in startups just keeps on flowing. This is good news for new companies, but it also creates a number of headaches. Growing rapidly brings certain problems to any organization. One such problem is a dramatic quick increase in personnel.

This, in turn, causes difficulties in communication and the sharing of knowledge between team members. Hyper-growth cloud security unicorn Orca Security is an example of one such fast growing startup that turned to Swimm to address these challenges while raising more than $500 million and growing their team to over 200 employees in recent months.

“Swimm is redefining developers’ relationship with documentation, transforming it from a tedious task that requires heavy investment and rarely pays off, into a seamless part of the CI process,” said Oren Toledano, CEO and Co-founder of Swimm. “By allowing developers to effortlessly create and maintain documentation, as well as improving discoverability, Swimm becomes an impactful and powerful tool for teams.”

“We are happy to help teams of all sizes share knowledge more efficiently. Whether it’s Unicorns, like Orca Security, up and coming startups or open source projects, all have a need for code-related information to flow freely across the team and organization,” said Omer Rosenbaum, CTO and Co-founder of Swimm. “Swimm enables developers to understand code and quickly contribute to the team. By lowering entry barriers, we can allow a more diverse group of individuals with different backgrounds and levels of experience to take part and make coding more inclusive in the process.”
