uTest Celebrates 5th Birthday with Second Straight Appearance on Inc. 500 List
Boston, MA – August 20, 2013 – uTest, the leading provider of in-the-wild software testing services, has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States – coming in at number 326 — on the 2013 Inc. 500 list. This year’s list, published by Inc. Magazine, ranks the top 500 private companies according to revenue growth from 2009 through 2012. The complete list appears in Inc.’s September, 2013 issue.
This marks the second straight year that uTest has made the Inc. 500, joining the likes of Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Jamba Juice, Oracle, and Zappos as companies that have previously made consecutive appearances on the list.
“Making Inc.’s list of America’s fastest growing companies for a second straight year, and at a time when we’re reaching other important company milestones is a real honor,” said uTest CEO, Doron Reuveni. “This is a validation of uTest’s vision and execution, but more importantly, it demonstrates how important app quality is for companies. More than ever, brands understand that they must test their apps in-the-wild to ensure they perform as intended in the hands of users.”
The inclusion on the Inc. 500 comes as the company is already celebrating two additional major accomplishments: its 5th birthday – having launched on August 18, 2008 – and its global community of professional software testers having surpassed 100,000 members.
Thousands of brands – including Google, USA Today, Amazon, Virgin, Sony, Box and Trulia – have already adopted uTest to meet the in-the-wild testing needs of their web and mobile apps. With 100,000 professional testers in its community, uTest enables companies to test their apps under real-world conditions across devices, OSes, carriers, browsers, locations and other criteria.
“Our investments over the past five years – providing in-the-wild testing solutions, acquiring top mobile development tools, developing award-winning app quality analytics – have positioned us well for the growing apps economy,” added uTest CMO, Matt Johnston. “Using outside app quality signals – from developers, testers and end-users – is integral to launching great web and mobile apps. With our range of app quality solutions we’re extremely optimistic about uTest’s future.”
