As a PM with a fair amount of testing experience I've been using Rainforest QA to build up a functional test suite for our web app. Writing tests is straightforward and it's nice to then get real humans executing the tests so that you can get readable feedback when something isn't working. I'd certainly recommend giving it a try to see if it might fit your workflow.
Automated end-to-end testing that gets our code and user experiences tested more quickly. Can be scripted. Great in a continuous delivery model.
All services, directives and controllers from angular are tested using Karma.
