We're software developer and product management consultants

We solve software investment problems holistically—from strategy to execution

We’re not your typical software consultancy. We’re strategic advisors but we also embed with your engineering and product teams and work alongside them to uncover and solve root cause problems.

We get things done and set your team up to drive repeatable outcomes

So you succeed when we’re no longer needed. We tackle the technical and human aspects of every problem, striving to build both:

Great Software

  • Build the thing right
  • Focus on business value
  • Scale up with confidence

Great Teams

  • Build the right thing
  • Amplify collaboration
  • Strengthen retention

Renew your legacy systems

Avoid expensive legacy rewrites by renovating existing systems and leveraging innovative uses of automated test tools.

Rewrites are costly, and generally don’t lead to the outcome promised. With legacy renovation our testing experience helps safely factor your legacy codebase while avoiding a costly rewrite.

Test Double employs a variety of techniques using automated testing to remediate legacy systems. Refactor with confidence, knowing your code is maintainable for years to come.

If your unique circumstances do point to a rewrite as the best option (long abandoned frameworks or tech) we’re still here for you. We have experience with large and complex rewrites, including supporting training and pairing on new tech.

Considering a rewrite? There’s a better way.

Software Tools & Tech

Our developers work in many different languages, frameworks, and platforms. And we’ll meet your team where they are, then help them level up.

  • Ruby/Rails
  • JavaScript/React
  • Elixir/Erlang
  • iOS/Android/React Native
  • Architecture & systems
  • Automated testing & TDD
  • DevOps platforms & tooling
  • Creator and maintainers of Standard Ruby
  • And more!

Update Rails versions seamlessly

Upgrade to secure, stable, and supported versions of the frameworks, libraries, and tooling your mission-critical applications rely on. You get more than a predictable upgrade plan. We lead by example and mentor your team to stay updated in the future. Because there’s always another Rails version update.

Clients like GitHub, Gusto, Zendesk and more have worked with Test Double to upgrade existing Rails applications forward. We have built a body of knowledge around how to update Rails versions and avoid risks. Your day-to-day production work can continue, and dual booting strategies can avoid running two versions of Rails all the time.

See how this approach paid off for Gusto.

We help cut cloud costs, increase security, and uncover more efficient processes so you can scale up sustainably in the right way at the right time.

We go further, by making sure your DevOps tooling is understood and can be managed by everyone on the team. Your team and infrastructure is more sustainable and predictable. You gain visibility for better decision making at all levels.
