Made in France,
avec amour

In 2015, Hiptest’s five soon-to-be founders met in a kid’s playroom in a home in Besançon, a citadel near the beautiful French Alps. There, among toys and legos, Hiptest was born.

The Hiptest team enjoy themselves

The idea for Hiptest started with an obsession of changing the way products are developed and tested. Because the way we build software today is broken. Too often, there’s a gap between what a product owner imagines, how a developer implements it, how a tester tests it, and how the product is shared with the customer.

A way to help teams to get to market faster, with the product they actually imagined.

Hiptest is an easy-to-use collaborative development platform that bridges the divide between business and tech teams so that the product you ship is what you actually expect. We speak the language of the community we serve — built for and by Agile and DevOps teams, with native support of Behavior Driven Development (BDD).

From that initial meeting among legos to our platform today, we are committed to offering tools that work seamlessly to deliver on their promise. We’re constantly looking to improve, which is why we regularly ask for feedback and delight in finding new ways to make your life easier.

We joined Smartbear family in May 2018. Hiptest and Smartbear share the same vision for the future of development and testing. We’re committed long-term to help teams create the space to think strategically and creatively about how to make their products better and more competitive in the world of modern software.
