In just 18 months, Dallas startup Cosmic JS has racked up 60 customers, including Big Fish and Brand New Congress, and is just finishing up a $250,000 angel round.
And, it’s already planning to raise more funding in a seed round in early 2018.
The company’s co-founders, Tony Spiro and Carson Gibbons, created a content management system that’s programming-language agnostic and compatible with all platforms.
Cosmic JS is growing 40 percent month-over-month with users in more than 100 countries.
It spent about a year in private beta before officially launching in July. Now, Cosmic JS is growing 40 percent month-over-month with users in more than 100 countries firing 1 million API requests per month.
The company builds apps using its CMS API (Application Programming Interface), which it says is faster than traditional CMS systems.
For example, Big Fish develops games such as Fairway Solitaire, Cooking Craze, and Gummy Drop. When the Seattle-based company launches a new game for iOS, Android, or web, it uses a marketing landing page to promote the launch.
COSMIC JS PROVIDES CREATIVE FREEDOM
Big Fish wanted its game studios to have the ability to curate and update content on each of its landing pages. Other CMS systems weren’t flexible enough for its needs.
Cosmic JS provides Big Fish with more creative freedom to build landing pages while allowing game studios to make updates on their own. The startup has been working with the gaming company for six months, but just now got approval to announce the partnership, Gibbons said.
Its main competition is installed systems such as WordPress, but Cosmic JS offers better collaboration for blended teams of developers and content editors than other CMS platforms, Gibbons said.
The latest angel round included several founding members of Stripe, the online payment giant from Silicon Valley.
