BrowserStack set for continued growth as platforms proliferate, says CEO Arora

Cross-browser software opportunities for BrowserStack will likely continue to expand, the developer’s chief executive and co-founder has told Forbes India.

According to BrowserStack boss Ritesh Arora, the company’s SaaS is already used by many developers worldwide to accelerate and automate application testing across different browsers and devices, with post-pandemic organisational trends set to further expand its usefulness.

“We have over a million developers who probably would be using our products on an annual basis globally, and they would be a part of over 55,000 paying customers,” Arora told reporter Harichandan Arakali.

“We are way over $100 million and continue to grow very well.”

BrowserStack aims to become the “go-to” testing infrastructure for the internet, passing the $200m annual recurring revenue mark in 2022 as well as remaining profitable, according to the article.

Accelerated by the rise in hybrid working across multiple locations and devices, BrowserStack aims to provide customers with many more products that will help them solve for complexities in software testing use cases.

The company is supporting its goals with $200m in funding made in June 2021 by a Bond Capital-led consortium including the US’s Insight Partners and India’s Accel — the latter known for funding the likes of Twitter, Shopify, Udemy and Atlassian.

Nate Niparko, Ryan Sweeney and Shekhar Kirani, partners at Accel, note that software testing has often been done by siloed QA teams.

“[A] developer-first approach has been a common theme across our portfolio, including Algolia, Atlassian, MessageBird, Mux, Segment and Sentry,” they said.

BrowserStack customers already include household names such as Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Twitter, Spotify and Expedia, the article said, adding that application user interfaces are continuing to multiply at the same time as developers and operations teams are coming together in devops.

“In just a few years, we’ve watched BrowserStack establish itself as the breakout leader in software and application testing,” Accel’s Niparko, Sweeney and Kirani were quoted as saying.

BrowserStack, BrowserStack Live, BrowserStack Automate, BrowserStack App Live and BrowserStack App Automate support testing across some 2000 different browsers, including different browser versions, and multiple devices from mobile phones to smart TVs.
