Tasktop Technologies connects development, testing, planning, project management and operations functions of software development. Tasktop’s two main products, Tasktop Sync and Tasktop Dev, have integrated management software tools and improved the productivity of over a million users to date.

“All this experience has led us to define a new category of software practice, Software Lifecycle Integration (SLI), to fulfill our mission to ‘connect the world of software delivery.’” – Tasktop

Tasktop has raised $11 million from Austin Ventures, from Austin, Texas, and Yaletown Venture Partners. Tasktop Technologies initially started at UBC 7 and a half years ago by Mik Kersten, Gail Murphy, and Robert Elves. Mik Kersten holds a Ph.D. in Computer ScienceĀ from UBC. Gail Murphy currently holds an appointment as a Professor in the Department of Computer ScienceĀ at UBC and is also serving as an Associate Dean in the Faculty of Science at UBC. Robert Elves holds a MSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria.
