Twitter has snapped up TenXer, a collaboration platform for developers and engineers. The deal was first reported by VentureBeat, based on an email sent to the startup’s customers by its co-founder and CEO Jeff Ma. He’s since confirmed the news to TechCrunch.
The purchase price is rumored to be less than $50 million, but neither side has revealed the specifics. Ma says TenXer will now be shuttered, with its work and team being integrated into Twitter.
TenXer describes itself as a tool that “helps engineering leads be better managers” using “the data engineers produce every day (via GitHub, Pivotal, JIRA, etc.)” to “deliver the key views, stats and insights manages need to be effective and to help their teams be more productive.”
It’s not surprising that Twitter would see potential in the company, with all of its own products relying heavily on the effective deployment of data and reading of analytics.
For its part, Twitter has yet to respond to our requests for comment, but we’ll update this post if and when it does.
