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

Team comes first... Always!
Our people are the highest priority at TestBox. We are building systems for phenomenal career growth, whether you want to move swiftly into people management or crunch on code or design each day.
Diversity in background and thought is critical
We know that diverse teams are happier and more successful. We actively strive towards diversity both in our workplace and our product so that our team and customers have a safe space to 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 with new and radical ideas and fast iterations. We also believe in reflecting, learning from feedback, and exiting bad decisions quickly.
Make it happen
If anyone finds a new idea to pursue or a problem that is unaddressed, we want each team member to feel empowered to step up to take responsibility and just make it happen.
Be kind and make a substantial positive impact
Kindness can require strength and courage but it always makes a situation better — we can all look after ourselves and others better. We love to support groups that uplift society, other humans, and the environment.

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!

Hi, I'm Isabella! I'm a proud Canadian with extensive tech strategy experience. I'm passionate about making complex processes easier and more efficient. There's nothing in my life I haven’t tried to optimize.

When I'm not making spreadsheets, I enjoy drawing (I published a kids' book, Let's Get Boba!), cooking, and spending time with friends and family.

Hi, I’m Jake, a full-stack software engineer and digital nomad. While I do work across the stack, my specialties are front-end and API design. I actually have a dual major in computer science and entrepreneurship, making me a double-threat for the start-up scene! (Kidding)
In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, roller skating, and rock climbing.

Hi, I’m Josh! I live in San Francisco after trading in my east coast New Jersey roots. With a background in engineering and strategy consulting (primarily in enterprise tech), I believe there are few problems numbers can’t solve. Outside of work, I’m usually honing my culinary skills, exploring the Bay Area, or emotionally over-investing into sports documentaries.

Hey, I am Kinnari!
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.

Taking a long walk, doodling or trying out a new recipe is how I like to unwind. Also, I never say no to a good cup of coffee :)

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.

Hello, I'm Peter :) I like solving problems (especially with code), optimizing all the things, getting out of peoples way, and eating delicious food.

It's not uncommon to find me riding a bike up some massive mountain, watching The Expanse, attempting to express emotion by modulating the tone of my voice, or eating tasty food.

Hi! I’m Sam. I’m from a small town in regional Australia and now re-designing the software industry. I’ve been in the US for over 5 years (previously at Bain & Co) and am obsessed with the incredible landscapes. Catch me riding bikes, watching cricket, playing with any dogs nearby, and trying new croissants whenever possible.

Hey! I'm Sep, a software engineer from the land down under. I like using data to solve problems, learning new things and teaching others.

Besides being a computer nerd, I am also a coffee snob and have occasionally been seen outdoors on two wheels (literal definition of a Melbournian).

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.

Buying enterprise software will never be the same
