Why We Started Test Double

Software is broken, and we're working hard to fix it. At Test Double, our mission is to improve the way the world builds software. While the goal may seem audacious, it’s what drives us. We believe that the current state of software development is not good enough, and we’re looking for others to join our cause.

Our Consultants

Developers at Test Double focus on writing high-quality software and process improvements to solve some of the hardest problems our client teams face. We embed with client teams to implement solutions that are well-tested, easily maintained, and built with empathy for users. Most of our projects fall under legacy rewrites, framework upgrades, and product delivery. 

Core Values

Knowledge sharing and continuous improvement are among our core values. We support our Double Agents when they speak at conferences, contribute to open source, and organize within the software community. We’re all owners—both owning problems and solutions in our work and because we are 100% employee-owned with an Employee Stock Ownership Program. We actively enlist our Double Agents to improve Test Double through involvement in our growth and company decisions, including our equity, diversity, and inclusion journey. 

Our Culture

We believe great software is made by great teams. That’s why people have been the center of our work for over 12 years as a remote-first company. With empathy, autonomy, and continuous learning as our focus, we strive to give our Double Agents the support they need to be happy and healthy at work and in life. We provide ample opportunities for our developers to feel engaged—including weekly opportunities to meet with fellow Double Agents, employee resource groups, retreat events, and much more.
