"Sometimes you get shown the light in the strangest of places (if you look at it right)."
MindSpark announced that it is expanding its software testing consultancy into an enterprise-level solution. What makes this more than just your average news item is that MindSpark is staffed by analysts on the autism spectrum. How cool is that?
As a California Benefit Corporation, the MindSpark platform has been operating successfully since 2013 and currently serves major organizations including Liberty Mutual, Fox Networks Group, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cast & Crew. MindSpark's staff has exceptionally low turnover, which, according to the company, translates into "unrivaled client retention, highly efficient client onboarding and deeper expertise in specific categories of quality analysis".
"Our mission is to use free market forces to drive social change by creating careers in high-tech for people with specialized abilities," said Gray Benoist, President of MindSpark. "Our model has been proven to work exceptionally well, and we are clearly exceeding the overall performance of other QA platforms. That's why our clients stay, and now all are expanding their business with us. Because of their skills, our employees are receiving positive customer feedback of their personal successes, enhancing their self-esteem and supporting their goal of independent lives."
