QualiTest on becoming the world’s second largest pure playsoftware testingandqualityassurancespecialist
QualiTest is a pure play software testing specialist. It was founded in Israel 20 years ago, by myself and my partner Eli Margolin. We started as a small consultancy firm serving only Israeli clients. Through the years, we managed to achieve double digit growth every year to build the company to its current size and become the 2nd largest software testing focused company in the world. Currently, we produce revenues over $120 million, representing over 30% growth in 2017 compared to 2016. The fact that we focus on software testing as a pure play specialist really differentiates us and makes us do testing better than the others, because we focus on that specific niche.
