About Us

QA and Off-hours
Emergency Monitoring Specialists

WTN specializes in QA and Off-hours Emergency Monitoring – These are the most important areas that our clients can focus on to improve their customer retention. It is also an area many companies struggle with because it is expensive to secure experienced staff in these domains, and is hard to justify when competing for fullstack and app development talent who consume so
much time and budget.
Yet, overlooking these two areas can cause massive issues shipping product and catching errors!

About WTN

Online Publisher

I have peace of mind that our remote dev team is watching over our sites in the hours our North American teams are offline.

Payroll Software

We work seamlessly with our remote team and our product and business benefits from the collaboration and insights our global team produces.

Digital Marketing Agency

We always thought it would be smart to have a remote team for cost and timezone efficiencies but we knew that we wanted our own team and not be stuck with whomever an agency assigned that day. WTN helped us staff our modest team of three, ensuring they are contracted and paid according to Indian employment law and with compensation levels to ensure retention. Wish we had WTN in our corner when we first started.

HR Tech

Fit with our team was really important to us - having a disconnected team overseas was not going to drive the synergies we are looking for. With WTN we were able to interview and select the team members we thought were a great fit.

Recruitment Technology Company

English fluency and technical communication was a concern for us - until we met our prescreened candidate pool. All were fluent both conversationally and with technical terms.

Established SAAS Company

Our QA person here at home was doing a great job, but always seemed overwhelmed by the volume of output from our developers but adding another local resource with the 5-8 years experience we needed was beyond our budget. Adding an experienced, remote QA teammate through WTN has kept our testing team on pace with development, increased our automation capabilities, and reduced defects and velocity.

Fintech Company

Overnight monitoring used to be our dirty little secret - we’d hope customers wouldn’t ask. With our WTN Emergency Monitoring Team backing us up, we now promote our round the clock coverage and have our sentry errors triaged and waiting for the team before they begin their day.

SAAS Startup

We faced a serious continuity issue with our startup phase as fullstack and devops developers kept getting poached from our team with 30-50% wage increases after working with us for 3-4 months. We couldn’t afford to compete - We started with a single WTN resource and grew our overseas team to 3, with NO turnover in 4 years.
