Magnum CI is a hosted continuous integration and delivery platform for private repositories. With a support of multiple languages (Ruby, Node.js, Go, PHP) and databases, Magnum CI integrates with a variety of external source code hosting platforms (Git, Mercurial, Subversion), as well as with self-hosted repositories.

Why


There were few CI products on the market: most were overcomplicated and pricey for individuals and small teams. We felt the need for a middle ground: something lightweight and affordable. Besides having flawlessly working functionality (which is vital for a dev product), it needed to have clean, simple & intuitive UI.


First Version: The MVP



First minimalistic version was launched: product received an interest and we gathered a good amount of feedback (enough for the next iteration to take place).

Further Improvements


We noticed that there was a large untapped pool of users: beginners, who might’ve heard about the concept of CI, but didn’t have a chance to try it. Goal was to make product friendly and welcoming and make brand standing out and recognizable.
