About the Mobile QA Team

We’re a fun group that enjoys being an advocate for the end-user. We love the challenges of testing and have helped successfully launch a number of features that you see on our mobile apps. We are rigorous on quality, but we use creative ways to get there. If you have an idea on how to improve our already high standards, we’d love to talk to you. We’re always looking for new strategies and better ways of doing things.
