Building great software and great teams.

Each year, businesses around the world sink billions of dollars into web sites and apps that barely work, are a pain to deal with, and cost far too much to keep running. The software we write is different. Our software delivers on its promised value, is a joy to use, and isn't too painful to change and extend over its lifespan.

Test Double is a consulting agency whose experienced developers are deployed as remote additions to your team. You not only get quality software quickly, we help your team improve in ways that will last long after we've left. If you could use some extra help and you share our goal of improving how people write software, we'd love to talk to you!

Test Double Agents at semi-annual retreat: Eric Newbury, Kyle Adams

We're business consultants
who happen to write software.

It's really hard to find expert technologists in the current market, but we've managed to assemble a team of world-class programmers who also excel at solving our clients' business problems. We view software as a means to an end, which is why we're as adept at addressing human problems as we are technical ones. Our people are also gifted mentors. Some of the work we're most proud of is the positive impact we've had pairing with developers around tech and techniques. We also enjoy giving back with our Great Causes program.

A multinational small business.

Because we've been a distributed company from day one, each person at Test Double is located wherever they do their best work. That autonomy has unleashed our people's individual productivity. But the key to our success is our team's ability to collaborate remotely. In fact, many of our clients rely on us to share what we've learned about building high-performing remote teams.

Whatever you need, we can help.

Let's get started!

Our Vision

Our work is far from done. A vast amount of businesses, teams, and individuals struggle to produce software that meets a real need, is delivered within time or budget expectations, or is maintainable in the subsequent years. The industry itself struggles with diversity, creates technology for technology’s sake, and repeats the same mistakes over and over again.

We believe that we need to continue to adapt and improve as a company if we are going to have a lasting impact on this industry. Within the next 5 years we will strive to implement the following changes at Test Double:

  • We will continue to expand our team of consultants to 150 remote agents so that we can have a broader impact on businesses and industries struggling with software delivery.
  • We will solve a variety of problems for our clients outside of just software development, so that we can have as deep and lasting an impact as possible.
  • We will improve the diversity of our team and ensure that we are an inclusive organization so that we stand as an example for other organizations to follow.

We don’t believe these changes will be easy, but we are confident that we can maintain the culture and values that we love at Test Double while implementing them. Further, we believe they are critical for us to implement in order to have the impact that we want on this world: improve the way the world builds software.
