We believe the current technical hiring process doesn’t do enough to help engineers show their strengths. At Triplebyte, we’re dedicated to building a better process.See open roles
Hiring is something that resonated deeply with all three of our founders.
Hiring is hard. It’s something our founders understand well. Before starting Triplebyte, Harj was the first partner at Y Combinator, where young companies often struggle to hire their first employees. Guillaume and Ammon were working on Socialcam (later acquired by Autodesk in 2012 for $60M), where they also experienced firsthand the challenges of hiring.
Triplebyte was founded on the belief that the current technical hiring process doesn’t do enough to help engineers show their strengths. Our founders started Triplebyte to help engineers find great jobs by assessing their abilities without relying on the prestige of their resume credentials. You can read more about Triplebyte’s views on hiring in our manifesto here.
We’re supported by some of the best angel investors in tech.
