Software testing firm only hires workers with autism

While most companies will only accept the talent that’s the best fit for their business, this policy can occasionally be exclusive of workers with the right skills but personalities or histories that can leave a negative impression on employers. We recently wrote about the Tihar Food Court, which recruits local prisoners to prepare them for reintegration into society. Now ULTRA Testing, a debugging company out of MIT, has introduced a policy that gives those on the autism spectrum a chance to apply their talent.
