What is G2i?
G2i is a hiring platform for engineers by engineers. Our vision is for the hiring process to be simple, trustworthy and enjoyable for both companies and engineers. Our mission is to create a vetting process where:
Engineers will vet other engineers
Engineer vetting will be as close to on the job requirements as possible
The vetting process will be objective, repeatable and quantitatively scored
The process will be transparent. We will provide the engineer’s code, our code review and technical interview notes in full to our clients.
G2i is short for “Good News to the Internet.” We are convinced that our primary vision & mission are good news to companies that need to hire engineers. While we are going about fulfilling that primary vision & mission, we will also be good news to those in need. We are on mission to help hundreds of street kids in Nairobi, Kenya obtain education, a safe home, parental care, and the love they need. We are also committed to supporting the open source community by finding ways to financially support those who build the OSS we rely on.
What We’re building
In order to fulfill our mission & vision we are building a two way marketplace platform. This platform will allow companies to find prevetted engineers that can augment their teams on demand. We’re investing in features such as a quantitative manual review code process, individualized company match scores and machine learning to automate more of these processes.
