They’ve also been writing books, speaking at conferences and helping push software development forward, changing companies and even industries along the way. We passionately believe that software quality is driven by open communication, review and collaboration. That’s why we’re such vehement supporters of open source and have made significant contributions to open source tools for testing, continuous delivery (GoCD), continuous integration (CruiseControl), and machine learning.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">As consultants, we </span><a href="https://www.thoughtworks.com/careers/hub/consultant-life"><span style="font-weight: 400;">work with our clients</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400;"> to ensure we’re evolving their technology and empowering adaptive mindsets to meet their business goals.
