Rainforest QA is an on-demand testing software startup on a mission to disrupt the antiquated QA industry by enabling teams to deliver bug-free software at the speed of continuous delivery. QA is subjectively measured, inaccessible to most people, and a labor-intensive black box. We aim to make achieving quality easy by empowering everyone to own quality and to deliver results that are meaningful. Our commitment to remote work and to our company values has earned us multiple culture and workplace awards and helped us build a diverse tribe of owners working toward a common goal.
