About Us

Executives using data to make informed decisions.

Our Mission

We believe that hiring should be based on what someone can do rather than who they know. We are on a mission to democratize access to careers, breaking down barriers and creating a level playing field for all.

Our Vision

We envision a world where everyone has access to a job that blends passion with purpose. We strive to create a platform that empowers individuals to find fulfilling careers, regardless of their background or connections.

Core Values

  • Mission-first: we put our mission above all else
  • Curious: we always ask ‘why’ and don’t stop until we understand
  • Scientific: we test hypotheses and make decisions using data
  • Bias for action: we like to move fast and adapt as we learn
  • Collaborative: we support and build each other
