Katharine Zaleski and Milena Berry founded Power to Fly to help connect women around the world to tech jobs they could do remotely.
Power to Fly vets its talent with three interviews (and code checks for relevant positions). The startup has connected women in 55 countries with companies like BuzzFeed and the Washington Post.
Though they’re not focused exclusively on mothers, the founders’ own experiences of returning to the workforce after having children was part of their inspiration. “You’re losing a lot of women in the prime of their careers,” Zaleski says, “because of this requirement that they have to go sit in a space, which makes no sense.”
Here’s to the entrepreneurs, like Zaleski and Berry, who throw aside the old models to show the world that Anywhere Works!
