    About Cypress

    Cypress is an automated testing platform that gives QA engineers and developers a quicker, better, and more credible way to test anything that operates in a browser. Cypress makes writing, execution, and debugging of tests simpler for developers all over the world, comprising engineering and QA teams from NBA Wayfair, Shopify, Disney, PayPal, Github, Slack, and many more.

Cypress is thrilled to accelerate our ability to innovate and ship new features to delight our users and customers.”

    Developers use Cypress to adopt the “Shift Left” strategy, which is important to facilitate the fast, bug-free releases that are required by the companies to provide the continual innovation expected by their customers. Cypress will also improve its open-source products by giving developers the capability to write all kinds of tests – end-to-end, integration, component, and unit.

We are big believers in Cypress’s vision to define and drive this next era of software testing and couldn’t be more excited to partner with the team on this journey.”
