The Problem

QA breaks the automation chain in modern Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment

Modern software requires a mixture of manual and automated testing to hit and maintain product-market fit.

But existing QA approaches are complex and siloed. There are separate tools, processes, teams and skillsets for each. Hence, the promise of fully automated releases is unfulfilled.

the solution

Rainforest fixes the broken QA link, completing the CI/CD chain

We combine manual and automated testing in a single, "write once, test however, wherever" platform.

We unify the automated and manual QA stacks, and enable our customers to orchestrate and integrate QA through a single API.

We enable QA to be fully integrated into the modern, fully automated release process, for the first time.

the values we live and work by

😇 No BS, No Ego

We are radically candid with each other in every interaction. This means a lack of politics, a lack of showboating, a lack of BS. This also means brevity, clarity of thought, and clarity of communication.

We aim to give and take feedback without ego, with the knowledge that we all are operating with good intent.

🐢 1% better every day

Continuous improvement is what motivates us. We design our product, our organization and our careers to be continually improving.

Mistakes are only bad if they are repeated. Experiments are only wasted if they are not learned from.

🛠 Own the journey

We are all owners, and we demand that of each other.

The journey we own is threefold: our customers’ journey, our tribe's journey and our personal journey.

We refer to ourselves as a tribe for a number of reasons, most importantly Dunbar's number.
