Reviewpad, a Porto, Portugal-based platform that automates the code review process, raised €1 million in pre-seed funding, bringing its total raised to €1.53 million.
The investment was led by Shilling VC, with participation from angel investors Simon Brandhof and Freddy Mallet.
This latest round of funding will be used for further product development, as well as new hires in all areas. Among the integrations Reviewpad plans to develop is support for code reviews on Gitlab and integrations with issue management systems such as Linear and Jira.
Reviewpad’s platform combines multiple artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, including integration with ChatGPT to summarise and review pull requests. The platform leaves only essential tasks to the developers, reducing the merge time of code changes by 50 percent.
Reviewpad is currently available for developers on GitHub on a free open-source plan and a paid subscription of $8 per developer per month.
