The BugBuster Web Testing platform allows Web professionals to create comprehensive automated test plans in minutes and find out where and when a web application could break. Hence increasing the overall application quality and customer satisfaction.

The start-up was founded in 2011 by Olivier Crameri (CEO), Renault John Lecoultre (CTO) and Professor Willy Zwaenepoel (Chief Scientist) in Lausanne. It is a spinoff of the Operating Systems Laboratory at EPFL.
