About Waldo

Waldo is the world’s first script-less automated testing platform for mobile apps. Until now, testing has either been tedious and manual, or brittle and reliant on engineers scripting. We’ve invented an entirely new, proprietary approach that does not rely on any scripting (🤫 but under the hood, we’ve built an equivalent of “Git for UIs” so we’re able to navigate application changes). With this, we can finally deliver the power of automation!

I don’t know all the details of how Waldo does it, so I hope they can share more about it some day and bring the community forward” Android Tech Lead @Square.

We’ve just raised our Series A, giving you the opportunity to join at an ideal time for rapid growth and as a core first-10 engineer. We are expanding the breadth of our platform and are constantly shipping new and impactful products to bolster our lead in the space. It’s a fun challenge being first to market: we have no one to copy and an entire industry to lead.

We are a tech and product-led company that gives its engineers ownership and autonomy in everything they do. We thrive off a good challenge, always seeing it as an opportunity to innovate, learn, and grow as individuals, a team, and a company. Join us in NYC, or remotely from the US and France.
