Boston, MA – October 22, 2019 – Iterators LLC, a Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) software testing company dedicated to employing neurodiverse and routinely undervalued talent, today announced it is now contracted to work with Boston College. The engagement includes the completion of an exploratory testing project, ongoing manual testing of test plans as well as collaboration on the design and development of an automated testing framework.
“Boston College is very excited to partner with Iterators, LLC as we enter an important phase of our project. Following the successful completion of a Proof of Concept engagement, we are looking forward to collaborating with the team at Iterators on functional and regression testing. Additionally, we are working together on improving our internal testing processes and also looking at how automation of manual efforts can be significantly improved,” said Denis Walsh, Director of Project Planning & Portfolio Governance in the Information Technology Department at Boston College.
Neurodiverse groups, which include individuals with ADHD, dyslexia, on the autism spectrum, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), are traditionally underrepresented in the workforce. By looking past “traditional” employees and focusing on neurodiverse candidates that display success in identifying patterns and sequencing, Iterators addresses all appearance bias, and as a result, assembled a team of highly qualified talent that is 30 percent more productive than “neurotypical” software testers. By hiring employees undervalued by other companies, yet who are highly intelligent with very specific skills, Iterators maintains a competitive advantage and provides its clients higher-quality results than traditional software-testing firms.
“We are so glad that representatives at Boston College stopped at our booth at the 2018 Massachusetts Conference for Women and connected with us,” said Jill Willcox, Co-Founder and Managing Member of Iterators. “Here at Iterators, we do more than just software testing. We aim to educate far and wide about the benefits of inclusive hiring practices, and we applaud and thank Boston College for seeing the value of working with an inclusive vendor and sharing our interest in social education.”
