Sauce Labs provides an instantly scalable testing cloud that is optimized for continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD). When tests are automated and run in parallel on virtual machines across multiple browsers and platforms, testing time is reduced and developer time is freed up from managing infrastructure. When paired with a CI system, developers can easily test web, hybrid and native applications early on in their development cycles, continuously and affordably. Sauce Labs currently supports more than 480 browser, operating system and device platform combinations.
Prior to joining Sauce Labs, Ramsey was an early member of the Quest Software management team, where he served as vice president of World Wide Marketing and Sales.

He has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, San Diego and a Master of Information Management from the American Graduate School of International Management.
