We are building the future of software buying

We started TestBox after seeing too many painful software buying experiences. So we set out to make the evaluation process all about the customer and product, not sales and marketing.

We are driven by
our values

People first
We approach every interaction as humans rather than mere coworkers. We take care of each other, hold space for feelings, and make it possible to bring our full selves to work, because only then do we have a strong foundation with which we can build towards our mission.
Prioritize inclusion across background, accessibility, and thought
We actively strive towards diversity and accessibility (along physical, mental, cultural and other dimensions) both in our workplace and our product so that our team and customers can bring their full selves.
Approach problems with curiosity and empathy
As we tackle problems, we strive to really understand beneath the surface and build empathy in order to truly solve for the right issues, rather than accepting what we observe at face value.
Always experiment and learn
We are always experimenting in order to learn and get closer to the best solution. We encourage new and radical ideas and fast iterations. On the other end, we believe in avoiding the sunk cost fallacy, reflecting together, learning from feedback, and exiting bad decisions quickly.
Make it happen
As we find new ideas to pursue, problems that are unaddressed and gaps that need to be filled, each team member should feel empowered to step up to take responsibility and just make it happen.
Be kind and make a substantial positive impact
Kindness may require strength and courage. The path to being kind often isn’t the easiest one but it is ultimately the most positively impactful one. With our time and resources, we actively give back to organizations that uplift society, other humans and the environment in alignment with our values.

The awesome people that make TestBox

Our Team

Hi there, I'm Austin! I'm a fullstack developer, but I have a particular soft spot for UX and frontend work. I was formerly a Cyber Warfare Officer in the US Air Force and have a BS and MS in Computer Science, so computers are kind of my life. When I'm not tippy-tappy-ing on my laptop, I love playing soccer/tennis/racquetball/yoga, listening to heavy hitting R&B, or playing video games!

What's up? I'm Bolaji. I grew up in Nigeria, and have now spent over half my life in the U.S. I've had a 20-year career in tech marketing, starting with building one of the world's first social networks on the web, in 1999. In my spare time I'm coaching my boys in soccer, globe-hopping with my wife, obsessing about why customers buy, or planning my next adventure.

I am a Product designer based in Mumbai. I specialise in finding simple solutions to complex design problems. Crafting an experience that brings joy to the user, is what I love about my work.

Hi I'm Lori;

I'm a Boston based developer; I like solving problems and making sure my team is set up for success! My roots were as a dev-ops engineer but over time I have morphed into an engineer of many things, from Unity plugins to frontend work and data analysis. My favorite projects are those where I can make someone's life just a bit simpler.

When I'm not coding or at the computer, I spend most of my time hanging out with my fluffy pup, doing craft projects, and climbing up walls.

I’m obsessed with creating intuitive, customer-first products. I find genuine joy when I know that my work can make someone’s life a bit easier.

Frequently asked questions

+
-
If TestBox is free, how do you make money?

We are paid by vendors when you buy a license after using TestBox. We get paid roughly the same no matter which vendor you choose, so we have no incentive to push you towards a specific vendor. Any recommendations we provide are entirely based on your requirements.


+
-
How are the software vendors involved in my TestBox experience?

The software vendors will only reach out to you when you request it through TestBox. You may want to talk to a vendor to understand a feature further, negotiate prices, or ask other questions. We’ll connect you when you’re ready. You will not otherwise receive any unsolicited calls or emails from the vendors. TestBox is built for you to buy on your terms.

+
-
How do you determine which use cases to build for me?

The use cases are ever evolving, however the ones you see today are from frequent customer co-design feedback sessions, our own internal software expertise, and your feedback as you use the product. The more people use TestBox, the smarter we get.

+
-
What information do you collect, why, and how is it used?

We collect the standard information used in a sales process to best recommend the right solution to you (e.g., your use cases, size of company, etc.).

We also collect your name and email so we can help you get up and running with TestBox and register your interest with our vendor partners. (They won’t reach out to you unless you explicitly ask to talk to them!)

We will also aggregate your feedback on which software you do and don't like to help our vendor partners learn how their products can be improved. None of that data will be attributed to you specifically.

+
-
Is my data secure with TestBox?

Yes. TestBox uses AI-generated data that looks like your own so you don’t need to put your own data into the platform. However, if you wish to load some of your own data into the various software solutions you’re testing, you are absolutely welcome to do so. None of the data will be stored by TestBox: instead it will be protected and stored by the vendor you are uploading data to (e.g., if you are testing Zendesk and upload your own company data, you will be protected by Zendesk’s extensive data security).

+
-
Does my company have to be a certain size to use TestBox?

TestBox is for any size company! TestBox is designed to eliminate the common frustrations of software buying that companies of all shapes and sizes face.
