Codeanywhere, a self-proclaimed Google Docs for coders, wants to become the defacto standard for code development on the go. Co-founders Ivan Burazin and Vedran Jukic presented on stage at Disrupt NY today after the audience voted them the best company in Startup Alley.
Jukic came up with the idea when he worked as a freelance developer; he didn’t want to have to take his laptop with him constantly, and found there was no good solution for coding or fixing bugs in the cloud. Codeanywhere offers iOS and Android apps in addition to a web option.
The company, which is home to the two co-founders and five additional engineers, has raised $635,000 in funding to date. Burazin says Codeanywhere sees 400 new users sign up every day, growing their total user base past 200,000; of those users, around 50,000 log in at least once a week.
CodeAnywhere uses a freemium model in which users can pay $5 a month or $50 a year for upgrades like unlimited FTP, FTPS, and SFTP servers. In the coming months, Burazin and Jukic say the team will be working on shipping offline capabilities and integrations with third-party services like Github.
