Polish startups CodeAlly raises €420k in new seed funding

The Łódź-based recruiting startup CodeAlly has raised €420,000 in new seed funding round led by Sunfish Partners. The startup helps tech employers find more specialists after pre-testing them with developers and companies, MamStartup reports.

  • Founded in 2019 by Adam Żaczek and Mateusz Olek, CodeAlly develops an online programming and skills testing platform. It helps developers learn, improve, and test their skills. The solution also combines its skill testing, unique CVs, and talent search tool to match the programmers with tech-forward companies.
  • At the moment, over 20,000 users registered on the platform, took part in online classes, and decided to receive job offers from employers. Now, CodeAlly is expanding its operations internationally through partnerships with universities and programming schools.
  • The German-Polish fund Sunfish Partners led the first seed round. It is an early stage venture capital that invests in Polish deep tech startups. Recently, the firm led the €1.5 million round for Deepflare and supported Pergamin during its €1.2 million round.

“CodeAlly solves a problem that keeps many tech companies from growing. Finding the right specialists on time is one of the biggest challenges for employers. The testing and matching the programmers with employers will help to develop innovation. We are delighted to be working on this opportunity with the CodeAlly team in the following years,”

Max Moldenhauer, founding partner at Sunfish Partners, comments on the deal.
  • The company will use the funding to further develop its educational platform and accelerate its development through sales and marketing, as well as cooperation with universities and programming schools.
