Tekalo aims to bridge the gap between tech talent and impact-driven opportunities.

Now more than ever, impact-driven organizations need tech talent that is passionate about solving some of the world’s hardest, most pressing problems.

Tech + Kalo ('good' in Greek)
Tekalo refers to using technology to build a better world.

Through Tekalo we want to:

  1. Empower tech talent to follow non-traditional paths, and work on causes that they care about (full-time or part-time)
  2. Simplify the application process with a single form
  3. Provide impact-driven organizations a list of top candidate matches
