The investment is also important in order for us to meet the growing demand for new and better products by our present and future customers."
Headquartered in San Francisco, LambdaTest was started in 2017 by Asad, Harish Sharma, Jay Singh and Shayan with a subsidiary office in Noida. It is a PaaS startup that builds the whole test infrastructure on the cloud for SMBs and enterprises using test management and bug tracking tools like Asana, Slack, JIRA, etc. LambdaTest’s technology claims to offer cross-browser testing on more than 2000 browsers, OS and resolution combinations.
