Jopwell is a digital diversity recruitment solution connecting Black, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American students and professionals with top companies for internships and jobs at all levels.

We are an NYC-based, venture-backed startup that Inc magazine named among the “5 Most Interesting Startups" to come out of Y Combinator's summer 2015 Demo Day.

Launched by former Goldman Sachs employees Porter Braswell and Ryan Williams in Jan. 2015, the Jopwell platform enables partner companies to search and recruit from a pipeline of talented candidates from ethnic minority backgrounds historically underrepresented at top-tier companies – from tech companies to hospitals to startups.

Our mission is to leverage great technology to make the workforce more colorful at scale.
