Code of Conduct
Diversity and inclusion make our company strong. We encourage participation from the most varied and diverse backgrounds possible and want to be very clear about where we stand. Our goal is to maintain a safe, helpful, and friendly company for everyone, regardless of ability, age, body size, ethnicity, experience, gender identity and expression, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other characteristic.
This Code of Conduct applies to all one-on-one communications, slack channels, retreats and Test Double events, but also to activities outside of that scope, online and in person -- anywhere such behaviour has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of employees.
