My personal experiences with my non-speaking, autistic brother ignited my passion to advocate for disability rights and design a world where my brother can one day find a job. I am a social impact entrepreneur and speaker/advocate for disability empowerment.

Conner Reinhardt

COO / Co-Founder

As a recently-diagnosed neurodivergent, I've witnessed the extraordinary talents of the neurodiverse community firsthand. Behind the layers of inefficiency in today's hiring process, there is immense potential to innovate a new system that's able to value and recognize these key players in the workforce of tomorrow.

Shea Belsky


I'm an autistic self-advocate, and the product of countless educators and supporters over the years. Because of my journey, I'm uniquely positioned to be able to improve the experiences of disabled jobseekers. All of us should be able to lead meaningful lives, and the neurodiverse are no exception to that.

Having spent over a decade working with autistic individuals, my research has shaped me to push for employer and company wide objective behavioral changes in the workplace that promote diversity and inclusion while also continually advocating autonomy and dignity for neurodiverse individuals around the world.

Brian Swanberg

Full Stack Data Scientist

Since high school, I have been interested in the future of learning and work, and in 2022 I built a notetaking software for those with ADHD and dyslexia to learn more easily. I understand how much better designed the professional world can be for the neurodivergents, and want to translate this passion to build systems that empower the neurodiverse!
