Justin Hunter


Employment Highlights

Entrepreneur with 15+ years of entrepreneurial business-building experience at three successful start-ups on three continents as well as extensive IT consulting and corporate development experience.

During my career, I have enjoyed working in both successful venture capital-backed start-ups and Fortune 500 companies and have worked in jobs in Hong Kong, London, and New York. In my career, I particularly enjoy creating and managing:


Founder and CEO


Feb 2009 - Present

In 2009, I launched my third start-up, Hexawise, Inc.. Hexawise is a test case design tool allows companies to test their software applications more thoroughly and in less time. It does so by allowing software testers to be smarter in how they identify what should be tested (and what shouldn't be tested). Hexawise is a SaaS firm based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, near the Research Triangle Park. Our tool is currently being used to test thousands of application at dozens of Fortune 500 firms and hundreds of other firms.

Software testers use the Hexawise software test design tool to identify tests that achieve higher coverage in fewer tests. The primary users of Hexawise are the people within IT organizations who are responsible for test design and senior-level project management (e.g., generally the people who document test plans and test scripts). Additional users include Testers, Business Analysts, Developers, Project Managers, and other Senior-Level IT stakeholders.
