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. While our consultants embed remotely with client teams, our internal folks are embedded remotely within Test Double taking on interesting challenges. We are empathetic collaborators facing all kinds of situations, which means we’re continually growing our ability to have an impact in the industry.  We are looking for voracious learners who find ways to deliver value quickly.

Test Double provides a supportive environment where employees 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 our internal contributions make a real impact! We also empower people to identify problems, build consensus, and develop solutions. Sound amazing?
