Binti builds software with the goal of helping every child have a family. 400,000 children are currently in foster care in the US and millions are in orphanages around the world. 30% of the US’s homeless population and 25% of prison inmates experienced foster care as youth. It’s clear that children who don’t have families don’t have a fair chance at life and Binti wants to change this. Binti is a mission-driven, technology company based in Oakland, California.

Since our launch in 2016, we’ve helped over 12,000 families get approved to foster/adopt children and over 3,000 social workers use Binti as their primary workspace in the office and in the field. Binti partners with county and state governments in 12 states to improve the foster care system and has increased the number of families approved by 60% in areas it works in, making a meaningful impact on more children having families. We have a huge vision in foster care, adoption and beyond and are growing our team quickly to help us get there.

We have a Product & Engineering team of 10 uniquely diverse individuals across different areas of technical and personal experience.  We’re passionate about helping every child have a family. We also care a lot about creating a workplace where everyone feels welcome and can bring their full self to work.

As an early engineer, you'll help define Binti's engineering culture and build a product that helps children in foster care across the US (and hopefully soon, even further!). Our product is built on Ruby on Rails and React, backed by a Postgres database and hosted on Google Cloud.
