About Rainforest QA.

Hi! We're Rainforest. We are building a new way to do QA.

We are a distributed company based in San Francisco and the world.

We're making it easier to deploy bug-free websites. We care about helping people to build amazing products. Hey also we're hiring!

We are (and don't judge, we have a selfies only rule):

A brief history:

Rainforest was started in early 2012 in London. We moved to Mountain View as part of the Y Combinator Summer 2012 batch, and finally arrived on the idea for Rainforest about 3 weeks before Demo Day, inspired both by our experience of how backwards QA is while consulting, and the near-constant complaints from our YC batchmates about how hard it was to do QA while trying to build a company.

After running a homegrown QA team of 2 founders from our living room for several months we had the blueprint for Rainforest. Since then we've been working towards the mission we committed to that day: to make QA easy and painless for everyone.

Every day thousands of our testers help some of the fastest moving companies figure out what is broken on their sites and applications, and we're just getting started. We believe that the future of software development is about making it easier and easier to focus on exploiting your competitive advantage, and using leveraged, beautifully designed tooling to give small teams the ability to make an outsized impact.

Everyone on the team believes in this mission, and we all get to work on making our own lives better as huge users of Rainforest. If you're excited by the idea of fixing QA, then have a look at our jobs page, we're always hiring!

Come visit us!

We're based in the awesome Embarcadero Center in sunny Financial District, San Francisco.
