What we do

Bird Eats Bug is a no-code SaaS tool that allows even non-technical people to create interactive data-rich bug reports that help engineers deliver better software faster. After a successful feature on Product Hunt and our first round of funding, we grew to a team of 11 people, 5 of whom are engineers.
