SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Oct 22, 2014 - Sauce Labs Inc
, the leading provider of cloud-based mobile and web application functional and unit testing infrastructure solutions, today announced it has been ranked as 21
in the Top 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area
by the San Francisco Business Times
. The award is based on net revenue growth from fiscal years 2011-2013. Sauce Labs' revenue grew by 378.4 percent during that time.
"We're thrilled to be recognized by the San Francisco Business Times as one of the fastest growing private companies in the Bay Area," said Jim Cerna, Sauce Labs' president and chief financial officer. "This award highlights the demand for a scalable test automation platform that meets the needs of the agile web and mobile app developer community."
Sauce Labs' rapid growth is attributed to the need for a reliable automated testing platform that developers and QA/QE teams use to ensure their applications function properly before they go to market. "With increasing adoption of continuous integration and continuous deployment workflows, automated testing is in great demand," said Steve Hazel, chief product officer and co-founder. "High reliability is absolutely critical to our customers so that their builds continue to run and their dev teams are not blocked by issues with infrastructure."
To meet this demand, Sauce Labs has more than doubled its headcount in the span of one year, adding employees across all departments to aggressively scale both its teams and infrastructure in San Francisco, California, and Vancouver, Canada. Sauce Labs plans to focus on building and scaling the organization and its service offering in the coming months, including adding on-demand access to mobile real devices.
