Tools we use

We use Slack for work and for fun. It’s our go-to tool for maintaining sanity both in office and remote.
The go-to place for practices used within the team and the company.
We use TestRail to formalize our work into test cases, suites, and executions. It’s great for running regression tests.
Our weapon of choice for writing functional UI tests. Our language of choice is Python.
It’s not all about the UI. We use Postman to test our APIs and even monitor their health in production.
Sometimes we want to eavesdrop on the discussion between the app and the API. That’s when Proxyman comes in handy.
We have a lot of browsers and test devices at our disposal, but not all of them. Browserstack helps fill that void.
Firebase & Crashlytics
Whenever we want to monitor app health in production or understand how the app is actually used, we often turn to Firebase and its accompanying tools.
All of our code is on Github. Everything goes through pull requests and code reviews with your future team members.
We use CircleCI for running automated tests without any need for our intervention.
Our weapon of choice for writing functional UI tests for native Android & iOS apps. Our language of choice is Python.
Our preferred IDE is PyCharm due to its set of unparalleled productivity-boosting features.
