About the Company: Founded in 2018 by Eden Full Goh, Mobot is the first robot-powered QA-as-a-service testing platform for mobile applications. it is the only solution that uses mechanical robots on real, physical devices to provide businesses with high-quality, automated testing of their mobile apps. Mobot’s human-supervised robots make it possible to automate mobile app tests that emulators, virtual devices, and existing frameworks can't. This approach eliminates thousands of hours of manual testing, increases testing efficiency and physical device coverage, and captures more bugs in-app before app store launches than software can do alone. Mobot’s first-of-its-kind platform uses physical robots to battle test mobile applications. Companies serving millions of users, including Citizen, Persona, Branch, Mapbox, and Radar, use Mobot to test apps on hundreds of devices, platforms, and operating systems within hours.
