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 to solve our customer’s problems. We  implement solutions that are well-tested, easily maintained, and built with empathy for users. Many of our engagements allow us to work alongside our clients as embedded members of the team. We take on a variety of projects and clients, which provides a kind of experience accelerator.

About the role
The primary role of an Engineering Manager is to grow, facilitate, and guide the professional growth of our consultants. You will provide direct 1:1 support to software development consultants, as well as develop and execute strategic initiatives benefiting the Test Double consultant experience—from qualification and orientation to the connectedness and career development of our technical consultants. Your efforts will have a direct impact on the success and career growth of our consultants, enabling us to create more opportunities for our people and impact our mission—to improve the way the world builds software.

Core Values
Knowledge sharing and continuous improvement are among our core values. We're proud to support our Double Agents when they speak at conferences, blog, contribute to open source, and organize in their local software community. Another core value is that we’re owners. We own problems and solutions. And we’re all actual owners, because Test Double is 100% employee-owned through an ESOP.
