Based south of Munich, Quality First Software GmbH (QFS) is a German software development company focusing on quality assurance. Director Gregor Schmid founded the firm in 2001. With QF-Test the company was first in providing a professional tool for test automation of applications with a Java or Web interface (GUI).
End of 2006, version 2 added support for Eclipse/SWT/RCP testing. Since December 2008 version 3 offers cross-browser web testing support and July 2014 QF-Test 4 extends test automation to JavaFX. Besides the GUI technologies, the general functional range of QF-Test was expanded continuously.
More than 1,000 customers from over 50 countries, evenly distributed over all sectors and company sizes - from small businesses to large enterprises such as HP, Audi, EADS, as well as academic and public institutions trust in QF-Test (References).
The motto "Quality First" is the heart of our corporate philosophy (See also our General orientation project). With our test tool QF-Test we contribute to improving the quality of our customers' software. We also apply highest quality standards to QF-Test itself, as well as to the quick, friendly and competent handling of incoming queries, and emphasize a personal, trust based, and steady customer relationship.
We are concerned about the quality of life and work of our employees and their families. Fun both in our daily work as well as during our frequent company events is important to us.
We put emphasis on reconcilability of family and working life (home office two days-a-week, flexible working hours specially for child – or parents care, paid nursery), employee profit participation and team spirit (Lunch paid by the company, kicker- and espresso breaks) and health of everyone (offers from gymnastics, table tennis to afternoon naps).
Every year we donate a fix percentage of the profit to a range of humanitarian initiatives locally (Bund Naturschutz, Inselhaus...) - received an award for this - and internationally (Globolab, Freunde Djibos) and we strongly emphasize sustainable economics (Company portrait (German PDF only), Regional Business Prize (German PDF only), CO2 Footprint (German PDF only), regularly CO2 Compensation Certificate (German PDF only), Sustainability Declaration of Benediktbeuren.
