About us

We believe anyone
can build a career they love

German version

Our mission: Enable anyone to work on their own terms, free to do the work of their lives.

Ever since our first mission statement to “help people build a career they love” we have tried to enable people in their struggles to work on their own terms:

  • People that need to work remotely because they might be in a location where there are no good jobs or they have a disability, or they are caring for someone who has, etc.
  • People that need to work flexible hours because of family commitments, etc.
  • People that want to work creatively because it’s missing in their lives and it’s making them miserable.
  • etc.

    We at CareerFoundry make this happen for anyone - meaning globally, regardless of situation. How do we do it? Through accessible and effective education. Let’s innovate and inspire the industry.

    Finally this is also a story about us. We want to work on our own terms just as much as anybody. It is up to us to define the culture where we can live our mission while strengthening collaboration rather that weakening it. 

    We believe that when people are free to work on their own terms magic will happen and they will do the work of their lives.

    We're passionate about continuously improving. In order to track our growth we've introduced a management system that acts as a framework to measure performance.

    We aim to widen access to exciting new careers by offering the professional development training required for a successful career in tech. Unemployed individuals in Germany who demonstrate a basic level of English are eligible for fully-funded sponsorships with the Agentur für Arbeit (AfA). Our graduates go on to lead careers they love, backed by 360-degree support from CareerFoundry in collaboration with the Agentur für Arbeit—ensuring successful job integration into the local labor market.

  • 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
