But for now, let me tell you the story behind why I built this.
Did you know:
4 out of 5 software engineers rate looking for a new job as really stressful.
It shouldn't have to be that way.
I spoke to dozens of software engineers to find out why.
It turns out that a big reason for the stress is the information imbalance between candidates and employers.
Tech team culture is often a "black box" unless you know someone who works at the company.
GoodTeams is like getting to have a coffee with a technical person on the team before you even apply.
How do we decide whether a technical team is 'good'?
We have a couple of guard rails in place. Whenever possible, we chat to an engineer directly as part of onboarding a team. We also require companies with over 10 Glassdoor reviews from engineers to have an average score of 3.5 or higher.
We recognise that good means different things to different people.
Our goal is to transparently surface as much information as possible about each team. We want to empower technical folks to find teams that are a good fit for them, rather than trying to decide what good looks like for everyone.
Traditional job boards haven't changed since the 90s.
Let's create what comes next.
