About Test Double

Software is broken, and we're working hard to fix it. While the goal may seem audacious, it's what drives us. We're consultants who embed remotely with client teams and take on interesting challenges. We are looking for voracious learners who find ways to deliver value quickly. We use whatever tools and processes our clients use, so we're always learning new technologies and techniques. We're also empathetic collaborators joining teams facing all kinds of challenges, which means we're continually growing our ability to have an impact as consultants.

Test Double provides a supportive environment where consultants can have autonomy and thrive. We were 100% remote before it was fashionable, and offer 10% paid Growth Time every week. Plus, we stay connected as a wider team through weekly hangouts, coffee chats, employee resource groups and more. Many of us give back by contributing to open source, blogging or speaking, or working on our Great Causes initiative. We’re a 100% employee owned company, and consultants’ internal contributions make a real impact! We also empower people to identify problems, build consensus, and develop solutions. Sound amazing?
