What Happened:

Shares of e-commerce software platform provider BigCommerce (NASDAQ: BIGC) jumped 7.95% in the morning session after company reported second-quarter results that beat analysts' revenue and earnings per share expectations. The company maintained full year revenue guidance but increased operating profit guidance for that period, which was a welcome development. 

In addition, Daniel Lentz assumed the role of CFO, succeeding Robert Alvarez, who retired in July. BigCommerce also hired technology industry veteran and experienced e-commerce sales leader Steven Chung as its president and announced it will add new AI-powered features to its platform, leveraging Google Cloud's AI technologies. However, its below-Consensus revenue guidance for the next quarter was disappointing. Overall, this was a solid quarter for BigCommerce. The stock is up big, reflecting the quarter and likely also muted expectations going into the print.
