SAN FRANCISCO – June 7, 2022– Sauce Labs Inc. a leading provider of continuous test and remediation solutions that enable development teams to deliver high-quality software at speed, today announced that TPG, a leading global alternative asset management firm, has made a strategic investment in the company.

“Our customers are under increasing pressure to ship code faster with no loss of quality. With the ‘shift-left’ migration of testing, development teams need test methodologies they can trust, and be able to connect signals across the entire SDLC,” commented Aled Miles, President and CEO at Sauce Labs. “This additional investment from TPG is a validation of our vision and strategy to reimagine test as a DevOps toolchain that will remove testing as a bottleneck and deliver the ‘it just works’ experience that customers demand. TPG is known for its foresight and history of success, and has been a valuable and supportive partner to Sauce Labs since 2019.”
Sauce Labs enables enterprises to deliver high-quality software at speed, providing a more seamless and secure experience for customers.

We’re excited to continue partnering with Aled and his talented team to support the company’s next chapter of growth.”
