About Global App Testing
Put simply, when the likes of Google or Facebook need to globally test their app, they use Global App Testing. We help companies all around the world to accelerate growth through our crowd-enabled testing platform for web and mobile apps.
Internationalising software at speed has become increasingly problematic, with the vast combination of new devices, operating system upgrades and global network providers.
By taking a customer-focused approach to quality, hundreds of leading brands including Facebook, Youtube, Microsoft, General Electric, and iHeartMedia rely on Global App Testing’s platform to improve quality at a speed that allows agile and DevOps teams to release faster and more often.
Our Mission and culture
At Global App Testing, we have the capability to leverage over 50,000 assessed and professional testers with real devices in real environments in over 189 countries.
We’ve also gained worldwide recognition for innovations in the testing field - most notably creating Testathons and publishing a best-selling book called Leading Quality (a definitive guide and philosophy on how the right QA can increase your speed, scale, and global growth).
Testathons, (hackathons for testers), have now run in over 35 countries with leading tech teams from the likes of Spotify and Instagram.
At Global App Testing we’ve created an open and inclusive environment where you can play to your strengths whilst stretching yourself to become the best version of yourself.
We believe focusing on your core skills, enjoying your work, building lasting internal relationships, and collaborating with other equally passionate and world-class people is a recipe for your success.
