SmartBear has acquired French continuous testing company Hiptest. Hiptest provides teams with tools to collaborate on an idea, test code continuously and generate living documentation. Hiptest was built by an Agile team, for Agile teams, to address the needs of modern software development. It is currently used by over 25,000 users in 140 counties.
“We founded Hiptest to enable Agile and DevOps teams to get to market faster with the product they actually imagined,” said Laurent Py, co-founder and CEO at Hiptest. “We felt strongly that SmartBear was the ideal partner for us moving forward because of our shared vision for empowering modern software development teams to go from idea to production, faster.”
All Hiptest employees, including co-founders Laurent Py, Séverine Darlot, Joan Racenet, Vincent Pretre, and Christophe Bliard have joined SmartBear to continue to grow the Hiptest product and business. SmartBear will continue to develop Hiptest in Besancon, France, and intends to grow operations there.
