How are you different from recruiters?

We are a nonprofit aiming to solve the tech talent gap in America. And in order to do that, we need top businesses on board as hiring partners. We are not interested in shuffling people around and we do not actively recruit anyone away from their job. We have a careful evaluation process to make sure you are speaking only with software developers who are a good fit and will be a dedicated member of your team. Our innovative process provides a better value to your organization than typical recruiters charging a percentage of each new hire’s salary based on volume over quality. Also, we are cheaper. A typical IT recruiter charges 33% of first year salary (~$17k).
