Our mission is to make hiring simpler, more efficient, and more human.

What started as a way to get open source devs paid for their contributions became the we are today, helping thousands of companies and developers collaborate on industry-shaping software

Deeper Dive

Our Story

Back when "zoom" was a setting on your camera, we were busy bootstrapping a platform for remote work. Our founder, Teja Yenamandra, breaks it all down for you.

What makes unique

The current system of sorting through stacks of resumes, scheduling multiple interviews, and going through lengthy coding challenges for every developer hired is a broken one, and we want to change that.

It’s a big undertaking, and our team is full of people that say “Let’s gooooo!” when others would balk. We’re a fully remote team of linchpins, dreamers, Star Wars nerds, artists, tinkerers, and, obviously, developers.
