It’s changing lives

Our mission is to unlock the potential of the world’s most underrepresented, underprivileged, and underrated developers.

Millions can’t find jobs because they were born “in the wrong country”, in the “wrong timezone” and with the “wrong English accent”.

We call this BS.

Help us create opportunities for anyone to grow by contributing on the world’s best codebases.

It’s working! Alumni got into Amazon, Facebook and Google. Star developers include Afghan women who lost their right to work with the Taliban. More success stories here.

The team is amazing

Here's a taste of some things the team has done:

?Several ex-founders - one sold his company to Carta

? National math olympiad winner and former Typescript team member

⛵️ Two sailing world champions and Ironman finishers

? Teammates who have already gone through the seed to unicorn journey

?A rocket scientist who launched a space mission

The team’s also diverse:

?9 nationalities for ~10 people

?‍? The engineering team happens to be 50% female

And more importantly, the number one thing newcomers notice is: people are truly kind. More on this when we meet!
