Hear it from our clients

Don’t take it from us. Here’s what our clients had to say about Codurance.

  • At Roche we develop highly complex software products that are installed globally in highly regulated environments. Our products require the highest level of quality and our developers must respond quickly to the needs of the market to sustain the added value of our solutions in the long term. We work with Codurance because of their strong reputation in Software Craftsmanship, an approach that is perfectly suited to our context, and because their training courses are proven and highly valued by our developers. Their ability to understand and adapt to our needs is a significant element of our ongoing collaboration.

    Sergio Champel - Engineering Director - DSDIC SW Ecosystems at Roche Diagnostics SL
  • Codurance helped us identify the friction and tackle the barriers in our development process, where increased lead times were causing frustration from ideation to release.

    Their recognised expertise provides us with truthful analysis of our situation, and defined clear solutions to our pain points, ultimately to increase business value.

    José López - Vice President of Engineering at BestSecret
  • Codurance was a natural choice, being closely aligned with the culture we are trying to establish as well as being able to meet the significant demand for engineers in order to deliver. I have no hesitation with recommending Codurance for any organization looking to improve their culture of engineering excellence or in the delivery of high quality engineered solutions.

    Ian Kershaw - Software Engineering Director at Cazoo
  • In terms of cultural fit, Codurance was able to walk the fine line between balancing a focus on quality (within a legacy codebase), whilst understanding business goals and needs. This was extremely important because it allowed initially sceptical team members to bond and learn from Codurance.

    Aaron Matthews - Director of Software Development at a Systematic Hedge Fund
  • “Pragmatism” is a widely discussed concept and but rarely taken into account when you are looking for software development partners. Codurance team embodies just the right amount of practicality with the overall vision and knowledge to bring positive change to any organization.

    Sapankumar Parikh - Vice President of Software Development at eClinicalWorks
