Developers may just get some of their precious coding time back as QA.tech is using AI to speed up the code testing process. The Swedish startup’s SaaS tool has been designed to mock a real tester searching for any issues in webpage code. It can test features like the shopping cart, search functions, and cookies banners.
“All other trends in development lean towards reusing code, so why should you have to write tests from scratch? It's a very time- and resource-consuming process, and errors often occur due to the human factor. By automating QA tests, we free up time that allows the developer to focus on writing code, not testing it," says Daniel Mauno Pettersson, CEO and co-founder of QA.tech. “Code written with the help of AI can make a developer significantly more productive, but at the same time means more code to test. This is where our tool comes in, by helping developers build more robust, bug-free applications.”
To further the development of the tool and expand the developer team the startup has raised $1 million in a Pre-Seed funding round led by byFounders and includes angel investors Mikael Johnsson (co-founder of investment company Oxx), Vigor Sörman (founder of Splay), Petter Nyman (former CTO at Sambla) and Vilhelm von Ehrenheim, (AI expert at EQT Motherbrain).
“We are proud to back this team and we are excited about the problem they are solving. Millions of hours of tedious work can be saved, while increasing the quality of all software we interact with," says Magnus Hambleton, investor at byFounders.
