Aaron Levie, the chief executive at Box, has joined Crashlytics’ advisory board, the company announced in a blog post. Crashlytics is based in Cambridge and provides crash diagnostics for mobile apps. The company is backed by Flybridge Capital Partners and Baseline Ventures, and closed its most recent funding round in April.
Since starting Crashlytics just over one year ago with my co-founder Wayne Chang, our mission has been clear: build tools that mobile developers love. Now, 14 months later, we’re both humbled and honored to be actively working with many of world’s top mobile apps – Square, Yelp, Groupon, Yammer, PayPal, OpenTable, Waze, HBO, Kayak, Orbitz, Hipmunk, Viddy, Socialcam, and thousands of other organizations.
Today, we are excited to announce that Aaron Levie, the CEO at Box, has joined Crashlytics’ Advisory Board. Levie, named by Inc. as one of the Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30, has grown Box into an international powerhouse that now serves 92% of the Fortune 500.
Having raised over $284 million for Box, Levie is building the company for the long-term, to revolutionize how businesses collaborate and share content in the global marketplace.
“The world of mobile has changed dramatically in just the past couple of years,” says Levie, “and with over 5 billion smartphones expected to be in use by 2016, nothing is slowing down. The scale of this market shift radically changes how all applications are built, and requires a new set of tools for the Post-PC development process. Crashlytics sits at the center of this critical part of the ecosystem.”
The state of mobile development is still far from where it needs to be and we look forward to working with Aaron as we hone the next generation of mobile tools.
“Jeff and Wayne are world-class entrepreneurs,” Levie concludes, “and undoubtedly are building an incredibly strong foundation to bring these tools to the masses.”
