About Us

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) are among the most important and timely topics companies are addressing today. HR departments are actively recruiting diverse talent, and companies are hiring DE&I leaders and training managers to build inclusive teams. Iterators LLC has recognized DE&I since its inception and was founded in 2017 with the principle that people with diverse backgrounds enhance and strengthen software testing outcomes.

Building trust and credibility are what businesses require to reduce barriers to projects. Iterators LLC is a certified woman-owned small business (WOSB) located in Boston, MA. Iterators' diversity of testers (women, neurodivergent, and BIPOC employees) augment the diversity of thought needed for every project we touch.

Reviews on Clutch and elsewhere confirm our quality. We welcome businesses from small start-ups to large enterprise software projects. We work with our clients at any stage of their projects, providing high-quality software testing, on-demand services, timely reports, and attentive service throughout the engagement.

Many Wrongs Don’t Lead to a Right

We try to protect our children and make decisions daily to ease growing up and the transition to adulthood. This is especially true when we know our children will face obstacles due to a disability. I recall one instance in particular when I lied to my son when he was 10 years old, and I still think about it. I thought the circumstance made it the right thing to do, hoping things would change by the time he reached adulthood, but I am unsure all these years later if it was the right decision.

A little background.

While working at a Fortune 500 company years ago, my former employer determined everyone was required to work 12-14-hour days, including weekends, for the next eight weeks. I went to my supervisor and only then revealed a medical condition, due to a childhood injury, and the impact this schedule would have on my health. Rather than finding some common ground, I was treated poorly and ultimately let go. My son was old enough to understand and concerned because he has a language disorder that will cross his lifespan. He worried he would not find a job given what happened to me. I told him most people are kind and would object to what happened to me, if they knew the circumstances.

A Long Way to Go

Unfortunately, not enough has changed since he was 10 years old. I did not know when I reassured my son years ago that organizations’ hiring practices would barely evolve. Hiring managers continue to focus on specific attributes, unable or unwilling to consider candidates' positive qualities, concerned it will be a risk to hire someone with a disability. As an HR professional, I know two things for sure: it's a risk to hire anyone, and it's never appropriate to tell an applicant they're not a cultural fit.

With that perspective, we founded Iterators LLC. My son and our neurodiverse employees have blossomed working at a company that focuses on their skillsets, not whether they interview a certain way or fit a predetermined profile. Our employees are able to have meaningful jobs ‒ just like everyone else.

Iterators’ commitment.

Iterators LLC provides high-quality software testing to any business, any size, any industry. Our employees and our values make us different. We believe in healthy relationships with our clients and employees. We believe that maintaining these standards builds a better community. And we believe in a diverse and inclusive workforce, which helps our employees gain confidence that can never be taken away.

What People Are Saying

  • Following the successful completion of a Proof of Concept engagement for Boston College, we are looking forward to collaborating with the team at Iterators testing our Eagle Apps software. Additionally, we are working together on improving our internal testing processes and also looking at how automation of manual efforts can be significantly improved. Their team communicates very well with our team, and their ability to identify software bugs is outstanding."

    Denis Walsh, Director of Project Planning & Portfolio Governance

  • The QA assistance from Iterators LLC makes tracking features within the app easy to understand and fix through the manual tests they plan. They are available and adaptable when needed and are very knowledgeable with several software bug tracking software systems. Additionally, they provide a cost-effective way of developing a QA process. Their flexibility in assisting us whenever we required help, especially with our release scheduling, is impressive.

  • Thanks to an ongoing partnership with a small, local business, Iterators LLC, we have conducted the City’s first-known Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). This point-in-time report uses four modes of accessibility (perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust) and 61 testable success criteria. These metrics verify online and digital accessibility efforts completed by the City to-date, and document future work that should be done.
