As my dear friend and co-founder Harj announced this morning, I will be taking over as CEO of Triplebyte.
We’re doing something important at Triplebyte. Our mission is to build an open, valuable and skills-based credential for all engineers. This is important because millions of people have skills (and deserve good jobs), but don’t fit the profile that recruiters seek. Another way of saying this is that talent is uniformly distributed, but opportunity is not. Our mission is to broaden the distribution of opportunity.
When Harj, Guillaume, and I started the company, this mission was just an idea. The company was only the three of us, and it took us months to get a job for our first candidate. Everything was an experiment (and most of those experiments failed). Now Triplebyte is over 100 people. And we work with thousands of engineers every week.
Watching this mission come to life has been incredibly rewarding. I feel honored to be in the CEO position at Triplebyte, with so many talented people. And I think that we’re still just getting started. Credential bias is a HUGE problem, and fixing it is a huge opportunity.
Finally, I want to thank Harj. Triplebyte would not be where it is today without him. It’s been a wild ride, and I look forward to working with him in his new role as Chairman.
