Web development has advanced in leaps and bounds in the last decade, but front-end testing has not. Testing sucks. It’s the part that every developer dreads.

It’s often harder to write a passing test than an actual feature.

We want to spend our time building cool things, and we need tools that match how we build modern applications.

Therefore we built a revolutionary new testing tool from the ground up. We have created a product that we love and actually use ourselves.

Our team is highly experienced and passionate about solving problems. We’re lucky enough to have some of the best minds in the industry.

Being open source, Cypress is evolving faster and better than if we worked on it alone.

Now developers can ship their software faster and more consistently, with confidence.

We believe testing needs a lot of love, and we are here to foster a tool, a service, and a community that can teach and benefit everyone.

Working at Cypress

It’s a marathon, not a sprint — we value being thoughtful, deliberate and intentional over sloppy and fast. We recognize this means we will make mistakes to move quickly but with that we want to fail fast and recalibrate. Our objectives are the bigger picture and not short term goals.

Autonomy & Ownership — we hire adults to do adult jobs, which means we strongly interview candidates and if we bring them here, we trust them, explicitly to do their job.

Candid & Respectful Collaboration — We embody directness and transparency from the first phone conversation with candidates to an employee's last day at the company. We believe that people can handle direct feedback and it has and will continue to create a culture of trust and respect.

Diversity and Inclusion

We respect people and create an environment where they are included and can bring their authentic self to work. Creating psychological safety allows our team to feel safe in taking risks, providing feedback, and creating an environment of trust, innovation, and success.
