Full-cycle QA including Mobile, Web automated testing for HealthCare app Image

Full-cycle QA including Mobile, Web automated testing for HealthCare app

3 people from DeviQA developed a complex automation test ecosystem for Web and Mobile applications. Daily tests run on Jenkins CI allowed to detect the most of critical and major issues. Some of the achievements:
- 150+ auto tests for the Web application using Ruby and Selenium;
- 150+ auto tests for testing native iOS Mobile application using Ruby and Appium;
- Developed performance test suite for the

simulation actions with huge data using JMeter and integrated it into Jenkins CI;
- Configured Jenkins to run all tests daily; status sending via email and into HipChat rooms;
- Tests suite for Web was configured to run tests in parallel with multiple threads which allowed to reduce overal tests run in 4 times;
- For the most critical areas of the Web application we created special tests for running on the most popular Web browsers using BrowserStack;
- We implemented complex pipeline workflow which allows to run tests chain after each deployment;
- For Mobile automation we created an additional job which allows to build a new version of the app using Xcode command line.
WeHeartIt - Automated Tests Development Image

WeHeartIt - Automated Tests Development

We developed a really complex environment for automated tests running of the project. We were given a 64GB RAM dedicated server on which we have setup and run 15 Virtual Machines. There were 3 browsers running in parallel on each VM. In total, about 40-45 browsers were run in parallel at the same time.

Tests were run on various browsers and different their versions. Multithreading allowed us to reduce time for a vast

number of scenarios run and, as a result, the team was able to answer quicker a question “Can we deploy?” Certainly, we also created all the automated tests.

It was one of the most superior test environment we have ever created.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Audio recording, editing, and transcription app QA Manager

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

DeviQA was brought on board to develop an automation framework and write and maintain tests for our Electron/JS app. Features included STT/TTS, audio file processing, media file compatibility, export formats, text and audio editing, and general UI functions.

What were your goals for this project?

To develop automated test framework for complete feature coverage of UI/functional elements of our application, with the goals of identifying regressions as quickly as possible and keeping pace with new feature development.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Deciding factors for selecting DevIQA were their specific skill set and expertise in our tech stack, years of proven experience in leading QA automation efforts, and general knowledge of test automation frameworks and CI integration.

Describe the project in detail.

The scope of our project was to implement and maintain an automated testing framework for our desktop application on an ongoing basis. Technical requirements were CI integration, UI functional testing across media types, formats, upload/download, text and audio editing, authentication workflows. I joined the company after DeviQA stated working with us, and we eventually made the decision to adapt our QA model to in-house.

Regardless, I worked with them for 3 months in a management capacity, depending on their team for nightly test builds and results, bug reports, and fast turnaround on regression testing. The DeviQA team was responsible for following new features and code changes made in our repos and quickly automating test cases and ensuring test coverage for new and existing features. They were in charge of test case organization, designing and implementing the testing framework, and integrating it with our CI system (Jenkins).

What was the team composition?

The team was 2 members, who were both test automation engineers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

DevIQA engineers were experts in Javascript test libraries and tools, and designed a framework that was easy to maintain and integrated well with the application services.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

DevIQA was consistently available via slack and video chat when needed with flexible hours that worked for our engineering team. We held weekly meetings on goals and progress, and they provided daily status updates. Their communication was clear and straight forward, and they could be relied on to respond swiftly to urgent or overnight requests.

Administrative overhead was minimal, as they were able to actively review and engage with ongoing feature development in our repos to add or update new tests. The DeviQA team was self-structured and self-driven, submitting updates and new code on a daily basis. If changes were needed to the existing plan or workflow, they were able and willing to adapt immediately.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

DeviQA had deep experience in javascript and test frameworks, and were able to develop a custom framework that included a number of tools selected carefully for reliable performance, CI integration, depth of reporting capabilities, and lightweight integration into an existing app repo.

The test suite they created was exhaustive and wide-spanning, and their ability to continue updating it with the latest delivered features was impressive. It was a pleasure to work with them and we would recommend them as test automation experts.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Time to market has pleased internal stakeholders since DeviQA came on board. They’ve demonstrated a commitment to deadlines and awareness of budget constraints. Customers can expect a reliable team that is comfortable both recommending improvements and fulfilling requirements.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CTO of a financial firm. We are a private equity investor that has been in business since 1976. We have an extensive portfolio of businesses and assets spanning real estate, high tech, healthcare, retail, and other areas.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

We had multifold problems finding and retaining good-quality QA and development resources. It is a pretty commonplace problem, particularly in Western Europe, and particularly magnified in the cities where there’s a large financial services sector. We are headquartered in London, which is possibly still the largest financial center in Europe.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve helped us on two, soon to be three, projects, in addition to helping us with raw development capabilities. We’ve used their test architects, test engineers, and some of the manual testing resources to bring our products to life. They have a fairly large team of on-demand developers, and some have been with us for over 12 months at this point. They also have wide-ranging skillsets in front- and backend technologies.

On the QA side, they’ve been responsible for scoping out, building, and running a fairly sophisticated automation platform for two of the companies in our portfolio. Effectively taking the project from end to end, they’ve helped with everything from the architecture phases to the operation of the automated QA testing.

What is the team composition?

We’ve had between 7–10 resources at the most extreme time. Currently, we have four or five people.

How did you come to work with DeviQA?

Finding people who are highly skilled, motivated, and affordable is incredibly difficult, and we had to cast our net further and further east. The owner of DeviQA had been in touch with me and was very respectful. He would approach me asking if I had any requirements, and even though I didn’t have anything at that time, I asked him to send me a message in three months. That process went on for about nine months. One day, I found that I needed him quite urgently, and he was there for me.

How much have you invested in them?

To date, we’ve spent around $500,000, and that number is going up every month as we continue to draw on their resources.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in September 2018, and the work is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Because it has all been greenfield development, the best way to measure deliverables is how quickly you are getting product out of the door and delivered to the market. With what they have been doing, particularly on the full-cycle test and automated testing, they have done everything we have asked them to do on time and within budget. I think that is a good success marker. If you were to look at financial KPIs, we’ve never blown our budget with them, and they have always delivered when they said they were going to.

Sometimes in an outsourcing relationship, things go wrong. People can get sick, go on holiday— all of the usual stuff. Even making allowances for all of that, they have always done what they said they were going to do. At times when something looked like it was going to go off the rails, they threw their own resources at it for no cost to get back on track.

How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

They have been super reliable, responsive, and professional through our entire engagement. I keep giving them more work, which I think is always a pretty good indicator of how successful your relationship with the company is.

They were very good, but we never found ourselves having to stress any of their capabilities in that area. Their resources were working under our product and project leads.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re focused on delivering incredibly high quality. They don’t complain, and they do exactly what they know needs to be done. In a time-pressed environment, you can’t ask for more than that.

They’re also good at challenging us. They don’t do stuff because you tell them to do it; they will challenge it, acknowledge we want something done in a certain way, but will still suggest other ways to do it. That level of challenge is good.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’ll say the same thing I would say about any outsourced relationship: communication. You always have to be on the front foot on that, but I know for a fact that it isn’t unique to them because I run several outsourced relationships. Given that they are a remote resource, they really try hard to make it feel like you are in the same room as them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you have a really clear idea of what you are trying to do. Articulate that upfront rather than making it up as you go along. I think these guys thrive on having structure. Equally, if you can’t do that because of project timing, you can still work with them, but to get the most out of them, give them some structure.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a CTO of a company that provides software to companies in different industries that help them manage their talent acquisition and existing workforce. I'm responsible for managing the development process for our software.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

We hired DeviQA early when we started, to have someone capable of making sure that our product has no issues during the development. Their role was to manually test all-new features and to cover them with an automated suite. The market did not provide us with good candidates to hire them in-house, so we have decided to outsource QA process.

What were your goals for this project?

There weren't any specific goals but in the end, we just wanted a good quality product.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have interviewed a number of potential vendors, but they stood out. They had the multi-disciplinary knowledge we required and were able to quickly suggest the solutions to our problems.

Describe the project in detail.

We needed QA to supplement our development process. Their responsibility was to test every new feature, to cover it with automated tests, and to be a part of Scrum teams. We were confident in their skills enough to give them the freedom to implement the QA process based on their experiences. They would make sure that our releases had everything fixed before the deployment, and once they were satisfied, we could proceed.

What was the team composition?

We have a number of teams of developers and SM/PO/BA people. We have also hired additional in-house QA people, but we still depend on DeviQA to make sure everything goes smooth.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Since this was a long-term and still ongoing relationship, I can only say that our ever-growing client base is evidence of the success of that relationship. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very effective. They are quick to adapt to any changes we needed to make.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Knowledge and skills aside, I think the most impressive was an ability to understand the industry-specific needs without a lot of input on our end. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

We're completely satisfied with DeviQA so far.

Feedback summary: 

Their independent and accountable team is a significant upgrade compared to experiences with other vendors. DeviQA excels at being punctual, solving problems, communicating effectively, and delivering on their promises. They’re a trustworthy partner that requires minimal supervision.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a QA manager at a Swiss IT company that focuses on security solutions. We’ve developed a secure messenger app with video calling and file sharing features. Our main clients are governments, hospitals, and financial institutions. We’re a relatively small company, with about 30 people more or less, and I’m responsible for the entire process of testing and delivery.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

There were too many things for us to test ourselves, and we couldn’t find enough good specialists in the region, so we outsourced some of the work to DeviQA. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DeviQA has helped us do several things. First of all, they worked on automation. We have a lot of test cases to automate—around 1,000 on Android and iOS each. We were doing this manually before hiring DeviQA, which amounted to a lot of time—around three weeks for three engineers. Their team has helped us automate everything, and they keep going, which means that we can basically run tests overnight.

They also assist with manual testing, as there are a lot of things to test before going to automation and to production. We’ve hired more testers from DeviQA in order to cover all product parts. Furthermore, they’re helping us lead a development project that we’ve outsourced somewhere else. One of DeviQA’s people is leading testing within that other company as well. 

Overall, they’re helping us a lot and I’m really happy we’ve hired DeviQA. I’d really love to hire more people from them, but we’re having some budget constraints. 

What is the team composition?

We’re working with three people at the moment: two automation testers and one manual tester. They work directly with me as a dedicated team, alongside the three testers on our side.  

How did you come to work with DeviQA?

I did a lot of research online and found DeviQA on Clutch. They had good feedback, so we started a small proof-of-concept project to see if they were as good as described. We liked them so much that we formally started working together, and we’ve been happy so far.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost so far has been between $300,000–$400,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with DeviQA around two years ago. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I’m 100% happy with them. We’ve worked with lots of other companies, but DeviQA is really responsible and has independent staff. Most of the time, they perform really well and I have no issues with them at all.

I’ve included them in our development environment, which has two-week milestones. I can see what they’re doing every day and whether they’ve achieved those milestones on a weekly basis. This is mainly how we measure their performance.

How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

If they have a problem, they will contact me directly and we’ll resolve it immediately. Everything is running smoothly and I can contact their principal whenever I have an issue, which he’ll likely know the solution to. DeviQA is pretty responsible, though, so I don’t normally need to call their boss.

We’re using several tools, including our own internal chat tool. It’s encrypted, which makes it more secure for exchanging important information. We’re also using Skype and Slack. I’m a Russian speaker as well, which has helped me work with them, but DeviQA has also worked with some of our English-speaking clients and the experience was positive. The communication part is easy-going, with no problems or misunderstandings.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re a really competent and solid team. We need to be careful when working with offshore providers, as some of them overpromise, but DeviQA’s people do their jobs and are professionals in what they do. I can leave them on their own and go on vacation, and trust that everything will be done and documented properly. I haven’t had any problems concerning their comprehension or ability to execute a task.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At this stage, they could only help us improve our own processes. DeviQA has helped us understand how we can improve internally. 

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

It’s important to run a demo project and see if they can do what’s being asked of them. This is true for any provider, though. DeviQA will tell us when they lack the expertise to do something.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the mobile applications manager at a mobile location data company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

We needed a partner to manage and do quality testing for our iOS and Android applications. They would also have to fix bugs and improve features reported by our users.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to maintain our apps’ full functionalities and ensure they complied with Twitter, Apple, and Google’s terms of use.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was not directly involved in the decision-making process. DeviQA was already working with us prior to me starting this role.

Describe the project in detail.

Devi QA works with three of our applications, two of which are for iOS and Android while the third is only for Android. They're responsible for quality testing release candidates for all of the applications and working alongside our developers to troubleshoot and resolve issues. The team also manages the App and Play Store reviews and assists in responding to user complaints.

What was the team composition?

We work with a team of QA testers, one of whom focuses on iOS while the other focuses on Android.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

All of our applications are functioning at the best level I’ve seen since starting my role. We continue to hear positive feedback from users about the apps’ stability and long-time usability. The apps have strong ratings in the App and Play stores thanks to DeviQA’s team.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Despite the time difference, there hasn’t been any shortage of communication. Our developers and their QA team are in sync and able to schedule time easily to discuss and plan things. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their work ethic and attention to detail are outstanding. The two resources on our team have great knowledge of our applications and processes and have significantly improved our workflow and productivity. Though one of them joined the team recently, they’ve stepped up quickly and displayed an ability to thoroughly integrate themselves.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No specific improvements are needed. Everything has been top notch and exceeded all expectations.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Having DeviQA on board has resulted in finding more defects before deploying features to customers, boosting the end product’s overall quality. Their team is not only supportive but also easy to scale as needed. Efficient communication and punctuality are some highlights of their work.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the senior quality manager responsible for our flagship product, a video-based sales learning and readiness platform. I manage the quality of our web and mobile clients as well as the backend services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

Our company is growing out of its startup phase. We’re signing larger clients and need to add features quickly to accommodate those client needs while maintaining the base level of quality that our initial clients have come to expect. So, we hired DeviQA to assist with testing.

What were your goals for this project?

Automation is the key factor in ensuring quality while delivering product features quickly and consistently. Our goal is to build a reliable set of automation regression tests across our mobile and web applications.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I inherited this team when I came on board with the company several months ago and have been pleased with their performance since the beginning.

Describe the project in detail.

The project included the development of a test framework based on open source tools and open standards. I supplied all guidelines, but the team was responsible for all of the coding and maintenance of the automated tests. They currently maintain the framework, including integration into other tools, writing new tests, monitoring test executions, analyzing test failures, and updating outdated tests.

What was the team composition?

The team consists of three full-time automation engineers. I provide guidance and set priorities on tasks, which are divided among the team based on who has the best experience for each task. This makes managing the team very easy for me, and I’m able to deliver a concise report of accomplishments to our executive management.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The number of defects we find through the automation process before releasing to customers has been growing and we’re also able to spend more time writing comprehensive test plans and reducing the amount of manual testing required before each release.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow is very efficient and easy. We meet once a week for a status update and to discuss priorities. We communicate as needed throughout the week to discuss any issues and resolve problems blocking the team. There is a project manager available with whom I can discuss any problems with team members, but there haven’t been any. I’ve only needed to talk with him to add members to the team.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their talent pool is great. Each individual has a lot of experience and exceeds my expectations. They’re also able to support each other to stay engaged and to keep learning. Also, ramping up the team as needed is very easy.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of any.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

DeviQA allocates expert-level QA resources to ensure that code changes can function within a production environment. Their team attends standup meetings, adapts to new software, and conducts extensive testing. Complex platforms pass a lengthy verification process as a result of their efforts.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CTO of a marketing company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

We’re building innovative software, so we need trusted resources with the skills to test what we develop.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

DeviQA provides senior-level QA resources to test our software. To ensure they perform the most thorough tests possible, they’re involved with our entire development cycle. First, their team attends our development kickoff meetings to gain an understanding of our current project. Then, they start building applicable test scenarios for each product. They also take an active role in our regression and smoke testing efforts.

They’re available to test a variety of use cases whenever we’re deploying a new integration, a redesigned feature, or a bug fix. Their QA resources execute functional testing to make sure that all code changes are stable enough to function within a production environment. We use Jira and some internal automation tools to track each implementation.

What is the team composition?

They’ve assigned 2–3 QA people to our account.

How did you come to work with DeviQA?

They were referred to us by multiple colleagues. After an initial project with them, we realized that they’re a reliable firm. We’ve continued to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $120,000–$150,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We hired them in June 2017, and the engagement is ongoing. We’ll likely expand their contract with us to include automatic testing services.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Each new software release has passed an intricate verification process. By looking at the bug reports listed in Jira, we can tell that they perform extensive testing.

How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

Their involvement with us consists of executing specific tasks. Therefore, they don’t require a lot of project management. However, we hold daily standup meetings with QA resources assigned to our projects. Those meetings consist of communicating outstanding issues and prioritizing bug fixes.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re able to implement a quick onboarding process. Since they’re expert-level QA testers, we don’t have to spend a lot of time teaching them our process. They can understand new software quickly, and then just go to work. It’s incredible.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’d appreciate it if they provided more detailed progress reports. While they currently send frequent reports, more transparency would make things easier for us.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’ve done an excellent job for us throughout the last two years, so I expect they’ll be able to help future clients in a similarly.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The two resources from DeviQA’s team are excellent, performing tests with speed, accuracy, and skill, as demonstrated in the significant reduction in issues found after product releases. They communicate regularly and well, while always rising to any new challenge.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a business services company that provides consultancy and software platform services to clients. One of our core products is a software solution aimed at protecting users from malicious content. I’m the global development manager, in charge of projects across the global company space.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with DeviQA?

We didn’t have internal QA resources, specifically related to the software development lifecycle. We identified that as a significant risk, so we reached out to a number of companies to fill that position. DeviQA were the winners of the contract.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They have a full-time engagement with us in the QA space of our project. We have two dedicated full-time resources handling testing on our software, which embodies two core sections: a web app and a mobile app, specifically for Android. They run a number of tests in the automated space—manual testing, unit testing, and some code review. They work remotely.

What is the team composition?

We project manage ourselves, so we have internal managers who interact with the two QAs from DeviQA. We also have direct communication with the owner of DeviQA and the senior partner, who we’ve met in person.

How did you come to work with DeviQA?

We initially engaged with them through the RentACoder.com platform. Our engagement grew to the point where we needed more resources than the platform could provide us, so we partnered with DeviQA on a direct engagement.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost has been in excess of $170,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in September 2014 and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We have very detailed success criteria; one of the core measurements is the number of issues raised as a result of new product releases. We measured before and after, throughout the product lifecycle, and specifically looked at the number of issues raised pre- and post- DeviQA. We saw a significant drop in all these. One metric showed an 82% reduction in the number of issues raised following the engagement with them.

How did DeviQA perform from a project management standpoint?

We run agile scrum, and they conform to that. They have a good understanding of the platform methodology, and of the system we use to administer that.

We’ve used a number of communication channels, the primary one being Atlassian Jira. We have daily scrum meetings performed through Zoom, the video conferencing platform, and interact directly with the developers using Slack.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Nothing was too much for them, which struck us the most about DeviQA. We can throw any challenge at them, and they jump at it.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their English level is good, but I’d say respectfully that it could be improved a tiny bit, to make some communication easier. We don’t have any difficulties, but it would make it a bit easier for them to be a bit more conversant.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Be sure to clearly define success metrics and ensure that you have the right communication channels.

We were mainly looking for automated test coverage for our website and mobile apps.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CTO of an educational gaming company. I oversee all aspects of technology and directly manage the platform engineering team.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire DeviQA?

We were looking for continuous QA testing coverage including manual, black box, regression, and automated testing solutions.

What were your goals for this project?

Our company was growing quickly with a small staff, so we wanted to minimize software defects while continuing to move at a high velocity. Therefore, we needed QA expertise that could work seamlessly with our engineering team.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had two engineers who’d had great results with DeviQA at a previous company, so it was an easy choice.

Describe the project in detail.

A dedicated QA Engineer from DeviQA joined our daily standups and had full access to our Github, staging, and production environments. He learned our project requirements by interacting with product leads and engineers and would pick up tasks through our ticketing system. He would then deliver detailed bug reports, including steps to reproduce his fixes and video screen captures. Additionally, he maintained a suite of automated Selenium tests, which run daily, and reported any breaking tests on our staging server for remediation.

What was the team composition?

We worked with one full-time DeviQA resource.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

While we worked with DeviQA, our product’s user base grew from zero to over 200,000, and we added a vast number of innovative features. We couldn’t have grown this quickly without the confidence in QA that DeviQA provided.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The DeviQA resource worked seamlessly as a core member of our own team. He had a company email address and was available continuously on Slack during overlapping business hours (about 3 hours per day), which was plenty of time to coordinate activities. He worked during our early morning hours, so we could start the day with fresh QA feedback from the previous day's engineering work.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The level of expertise and the responsiveness of communication were both excellent.

Are there any areas for improvement?

To be honest, there aren’t any. DeviQA delivered everything we expected and more. We only decided to end the project when our company and budget allowed us to hire an in-house QA engineer. I couldn't have asked for a better experience working with an offshore company for staff augmentation.
