About us

We believe anyone
can build a career they love

German version

Our mission: Making career change universally accessible and effective.

What does it mean to make career change universally accessible and effective?

We believe that talent is equally distributed—regardless of location, identity, background, or experience—but opportunity is not. We want to change that.

We imagine a world where anyone on the planet can forge a career they love, and we’re building a human-centric online education experience to achieve exactly that. We come to work every day, passionate about making successful career change possible for more people today than it was yesterday.

We aim to make career change universally accessible

  • To anyone who can’t afford to quit their job while they train for their new career
  • To anyone who doesn’t have access to a university
  • To anyone who needs to study on a flexible schedule

We aim to make career change universally effective

  • For anyone with the motivation to learn, grow, and put in the work
  • For anyone who needs personalized support along the way
  • For anyone who values a diverse community of fellow career changers

We know that career change means more than a change in your job title and a salary increase. These things matter, but we go the extra mile to ensure that our students have everything they need to build careers that afford them purpose, autonomy, and creativity—ultimately landing jobs that genuinely improve their quality of life. This is what drives us to keep honing and perfecting everything we do, every day.

CareerFoundry is a global community of over 800 educational experts, career specialists, mentors, and tutors—united in the belief that, given the right tools, anyone (that includes you) can develop the skills they need to build a career they love.

Our values

Our values are the foundation of everything we do. They guide us in our daily work—whether we’re designing the CareerFoundry learning experience, or helping to shape the next generation of tech professionals.

Approach with empathy.

We actively create spaces that are intentionally inclusive and welcoming for everyone—regardless of skill or ability, background or identity.

Recognize key contributions.

We value outstanding effort and celebrate each other’s accomplishments—whether it’s a small victory or a remarkable success!

Keep learning, stay curious.

We learn from failure and actively seek to grow and become better people—and we help each other do the same.

Inspire the industry.

We strive to create positive change in the world and to set an example for how human-centric online education can be.

Unlock potential in others.

We know that everyone has the potential to build a career they love, and we go above and beyond to empower each other to grow into that
potential.
