Attract + hire software engineers who get it

We help engineering teams in the DC area find, close, and retain top software engineers.
By helping teams find engineers who share their values.
Hey everyone,

There’s a problem with work.

There’s a problem with how companies hire engineers, and a problem with how engineers find jobs.

The problem is that people don’t love where they work. This is bad for employers and employees alike.

People don’t love where they work because it’s hard to understand the workplace culture of an employer until you’re actually an employee.

In fact, discovering the true workplace culture and the values of a company is often the last step in the hiring process.

First, you see an appealing job.

Then, you tweak your resume to fit it. Maybe write a cover letter.

You send off your application.

You hear back.

Then do a phone interview with a recruiter.

Then a phone interview with the hiring manager.

Then an in-person interview and coding assessment, all of which takes hours.

Get offer. Accept. Go to work. Start to see the real culture of the company. Hopefully, you like it and it’s a good fit.

But what if it’s not? Then you calculate how quickly you can leave the job and find your next one…only to repeat the cycle above.

What if it wasn’t like this? What if you could actually see the culture of a company before even deciding to apply?

Soon, you’ll be able to.

We’re working with companies in the DC area to help you see what they really value, so you can work for a place that works for you.
