About Waldo

Waldo is the world’s first no-code testing platform that lets anyone create automated mobile tests without the hassle of scripting. Every company with a mobile app needs to test it, and we're the first to make it fast, easy, reliable, and no-code. We’ve just raised a well-funded Series A, giving you the opportunity to join at an ideal time for rapid growth.

Our Ethos

Waldo is an engineering and product-led culture, meaning that its approach to work is both scientific and creative.

Scientific in that it’s based on experimentation, iteration, and objective analysis. One should be willing to challenge their own ideas and the ideas of others in the pursuit of a better path forward. Egos are left at the door. It’s never a competition for who is right, but rather what is most right.

Creative in that it supports ideas that are daring and unconventional. Waldo’s team is methodical, but not rigid in their thinking or approach to problems. They take their work seriously, but never themselves too seriously.

It’s a culture that nurtures the value of how to think, not what to think.
