Founded in 2015, Cypress enables developers to devise tests for their browser-based applications that are easier to write, simpler to debug, and more reliable than existing tools. Using Cypress, customers can dramatically improve test coverage, reduce bugs that appear in production, and rapidly diagnose and fix errors. Teams at companies like Netflix, Autodesk, Shopify, Conde Nast, Johnson & Johnson, and Disney are using Cypress to recast their entire development process.
Since first meeting CEO Drew Lanham in April 2019, we have been consistently impressed by Cypress’ universal developer affinity. We are excited to invest in Cypress because we believe its unwavering focus on building the best product will continue to drive adoption across organizations of all sizes and levels of engineering sophistication. We spoke with over 20 customers and users and were struck by the genuine love for a product in a category that has historically engendered frustration, not excitement.
We were instantly captivated by Brian Mann, the founder and creator of Cypress, and his intuition for understanding developers needs coupled with his relentless drive to build products to support them. We share his ambitious vision that Cypress can continue building on its edge in end-to-end application software testing and become the leading platform for all forms of developer-first testing. We believe Cypress can not only automate what remains a predominantly manual industry today, but also grow the market by giving even the least experienced developers the ability to check, and the confidence to know with certainty, that their code works as intended.
We are thrilled to welcome Cypress to the Stripes family and empower developers to build better software faster for their customers.
