How does it work?

You connect Bitmob to your code repository, and the platform automatically identifies gaps in test coverage and issues tasks for Bitmob Test Engineers to cover that code with high-quality tests.

Test production includes a peer review by another Senior Bitmob Test Engineer before being presented to you for final acceptance.

When you click approve, the Bitmob platform will deliver the automated test code directly to your repository.

How is Bitmob better?

Bitmob is the easiest path to achieving comprehensive test coverage on your critical application functionality. Until now, you had to burden your engineers with creating automated tests, and keeping them updated. While the value of that is high, engineers are very busy and test coverage quickly falls behind.

Bitmob makes that process seamless. Our platform monitors for codebase changes, identifies gaps in test coverage, and automatically springs into action creating high-quality tests. The code is then presented to you for final approval, at which time the tests are delivered directly to your code repository.

How much does it cost?

Pricing varies based on your application coverage needs. You set a fixed or monthly budget, and Bitmob starts creating tests according to your preference. We offer a full satisfaction guarantee. You only pay for tests that you accept.

What types of Automated Tests can you create?

Bitmob focuses on creating and maintaining Unit Tests, Integration (end-to-end API tests), and UI Automation tests. Our platform is language agnostic, and we can build unit & integration tests in the same language as your codebase.

For UI Automation tests we have a variety of tools that we can leverage, based on your needs & preferences - including Selenium, Appium, TestComplete, IBM Rationale Functional Tester, SilkTest, and HP Unified Functional Testing (UFT) to name a few.

What is a Mobster?

That is what we call our engineers! It is a title earned after passing our rigorous vetting process, and maintaining high quality standards in all deliverables.

How do you guarantee the quality of your engineers?

Bitmob Engineers (Mobsters) go through a rigorous upfront vetting process that ensures that they are exceptional. Our screening process is performed per language, and includes a professional experience & background check, communication ability, coding challenge, behavioral assessment and live technical interview...but that is just the beginning.

Mobsters run all their work through the Bitmob platform where is goes through a series of quality assessments and is continuously vetted to ensure you are always being provided with high-quality automated tests.

Where are your engineers located?

We are structured as a remote organization with a diverse group of exceptional Mobsters located primarily within the United States, Europe and South America.

Developer Questions

Can any developer become a Mobster?

No. The Bitmob community is by invite only. Each Mobster must pass a rigorous screening process before being able to work for Bitmob. All work is constantly measured to ensure each Mobster performs at a high quality level.

What programming languages can Bitmob produce tests for?

We're a language agnostic platform that adapts to meet the demand of client needs. It is most common to find us working in popular web and mobile languages such as React, Angular, NodeJS, Java, Python, Ruby, PHP, Swift and Kotlin.

How quickly do I get paid after completing a task?

Payment is sent immediately after acceptance of your work. However, depending on your chosen payout method, it could take between 1 to 5 days to arrive in your account.

Is there a minimum amount of hours required to remain a Mobster?

We have both full-time and part-time opportunities. The most important aspects are your availability and consistency in providing high-quality work. If you are unresponsive, or inactive for an extended period of time, you may be moved back to the waitlist.
