Make Tech more colorful

We want to close the talent gap and increase diversity in tech. Find out more about our team and board of advisors behind the TechFace.

We’re solving two problems

We’re solving the talent gap and increase diversity in tech. By showcasing the most exciting career opportunities and coaching our community to build the skills needed to take those opportunities, we’re improving diversity in tech. In other words, we are expanding the companies’ hiring network.

Our mission.

We assess companies for culture and commitment to diversity before engaging. We want partners in building a community of tech talent, not just ad hoc recruiting requests.
Above all, we want our members to build their best careers in tech. Thus, we are closing the tech talent gap.

Our vision.

We’ve heard too often that high-potential talent can’t get hired and companies can’t find them. Therefore, we’re changing that by replacing tedious, inefficient online systems with personal introductions. In other words, let’s make recruiting personal again.

We want you on our team! Growing a diverse, fun and fulfilled TechFace team is part of our vision.
Please get in touch if you want to make tech more colorful too.
