About the Company

Bitwise Industries was founded in 2013 to uplift people from disadvantaged backgrounds or coming from a story of systemic poverty by creating pathways into the technology industry. Bitwise builds tech ecosystems focused on activating human potential in America’s poorest zip codes in underestimated cities through three key areas: Workforce, Tech Consulting and Real Estate. Bitwise Workforce teaches people to code, building on-ramps for those traditionally left out of the technology industry. Bitwise Technology Consulting provides cutting-edge custom software from non-traditional talent. Lastly, Bitwise Real Estate transforms blighted historical spaces to create a place for the tech community to take root.

Why Bitwise Industries IS A MOST LOVED WORKPLACE®

Systemic Collaboration

EMPLOYEES COLLABORATE THROUGHOUT OUR COMPANY BY …

… openly communicating throughout the organization for the common good. Bitwise builds community through constant engagement, whether that be via Slack, email, in-person or virtual events. From our employees, to our apprenticeships, we are all working toward uplifting our communities, and simultaneously driving diversity into the tech workforce.

Positive Vision of the Future

EMPLOYEES AT OUR COMPANY HAVE A POSITIVE VISION FOR THE FUTURE BECAUSE …

… every one of our employees believes and is committed to our mission of uplifting the most vulnerable communities in the nation. We see the impact we’re making and we know how unique our organization is – from where it’s located, to who it employs, to the way we work to accomplish our goals. Our company is about putting people first, our mission is indicative of that, and the way we prioritize our people internally speaks to that as well.

Company Respect

WE SHOW RESPECT AND ENSURE THAT ALL VOICES ARE HEARD AND IDEAS ARE VALUED THROUGHOUT THE COMPANY BY …

… hosting all team meetings with every staff member having the opportunity to communicate directly with executive leadership. Along with their ongoing huddles with supervisors, every employee has a dedicated 30 min. 1:1 with their supervisor on a weekly basis. We have also implemented yearly open forums where we invite employees to discuss what's going right, and what can be improved to make them active participants in the direction of the company.

Company Support / Killer Outcomes

WE SUPPORT OUR EMPLOYEES IN ACHIEVING THEIR PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL GOALS BY …

… providing programs that support, amplify, and nurture employees. Bitwise provides services such as childcare, transportation and more to ensure employees can actively pursue their goals in and out of the office.

Alignment of Values

OUR COMPANY’S VALUES ARE ALIGNED WITH OUR EMPLOYEES BECAUSE …

… our employees are the foundation of not only our company, but also our mission. They are the reason we do what we do. They are active members of the communities we are trying to reach, support and amplify. Everyone at Bitwise has their own path to success and we are here to support their vision of success.

Company Practices / Love

PROGRAMS AND PRACTICES WE GIVE TO OUR EMPLOYEES THAT CREATE A LOVED WORKPLACE ARE …

… the value we place on employees’ mental health. We encourage employees to communicate their needs so we can provide assistance where possible such as adjustments to their schedule or workload. Our in-person workspaces include wellness-focused areas, such as meditation rooms and fitness centers, so employees can step away from work when needed.

CEO Strengths

OUR CEO SERVES AS A MODEL OF OUR COMPANY VALUES BY …

… sharing their lived experiences to uplift some of the most underestimated, underrepresented individuals across the nation. Their representation is important to Latinx, LGBTQIA+, and women in STEM communities, and they work to lift as many people up as possible. As active voices in their community and in the tech industry, they work toward swaying hearts and minds, and in doing so invite nontraditional talent — uplifting some of the most vulnerable in the country.

Benefits

EXAMPLES OF UNIQUE BENEFITS, BONUS, OR COMPENSATION WE PROVIDE ARE …

… the $1,000 employees are given every year to spend on the cause or nonprofit of their choice, giving them the ability to invest in their personal passions. Pre-pandemic, we hosted employee bonding functions and during quarantine, we organized a virtual music festival to demonstrate and grow our connections.

Our response to COVID-19

During the height of the pandemic, Bitwise implemented 60% time, where employees were asked to work only 60% of their regular hours, with full pay and benefits so they could focus on their families and self-care. We were one of the first California companies to move to remote work in March 2020, and while we are excited to eventually return to in-person work, we have continued to stay remote to protect our employees’ health. We have also implemented a partial four-day work week, along with providing our employees two weeks paid vacation during the last two weeks of December.
