Company Description

At Cypress, we’re on a mission to build an essential testing platform that makes automated testing delightful and effective. Cypress provides better, faster, and more reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser. Hundreds of thousands of developers and QA professionals use Cypress.io to write better code faster and release with confidence.

Our testing platform is currently comprised of an open source Test Runner and the subscription-based Cypress Dashboard, which together form a complete solution. Engineering teams get started with the Test Runner, writing and running tests locally while doing their daily development. When an organization builds a suite of tests and needs to scale its testing approach, they add the Cypress Dashboard. The Dashboard makes it easy to test and debug faster through CI integration, parallelization, and a suite of tools for tracking and analyzing every test and the test suite as a whole.

 Cypress is currently used in over 90 countries by hundreds of thousands of developers across more than 12,000 organizations. Cypress has over 1,200 customers in more than 50 countries across 45 industries and includes marquee names like Asurion, Atlassian, Autodesk, BetterCloud, Betterment, ClassDojo, Crunchbase, Disney, DHL, DocuSign, Fullstory, Gatsby, GitHub, HashiCorp, Lego, NBA Digital, Nielsen, PayPal, Pendo, SendGrid, Slack, Shopify, Trulia, OpenTable, Warby Parker, WIX, Zendesk, ZocDoc, and 99Designs.

 The company was founded in 2015 and has raised $55M in capital to date, including a $40M Series B financing in November 2020, led by OpenView Partners, with participation from Bessemer Venture Partners, Battery Ventures, Sapphire Ventures and Stripes.co. 

Cypress is the market leader in developer driven test automation. Test automation represents a $14B market and a 16% CAGR.
