At Edovo, our mission is to help everyone connected to incarceration build better lives. We’ve created a secure digital platform to expand education behind bars, reduce recidivism and to support the vocational, rehabilitation and communication needs of the 2.2 million people in jails and prisons. Users have access to thousands of hours of self-guided learning materials. Upon release, our learners have the option to continue their progress on the outside. Edovo offers courses in subjects ranging from basic literacy and GED to career exploration and cognitive behavioral therapy. We’re also building tools to keep people in touch with jobs, social services, friends, and family. Our team is committed to supporting opportunities for justice-involved people.
Don’t take it just from us. Awards, publications, grants, and partnerships all around the country are recognizing the momentum and impact of Edovo. A select few: Global EdTech Startup Champion in London out of 1,000+ competitors; GIIRS Platinum Rating for social impact; MacArthur Foundation Grant Award Winner; Forbes article feature; Chicago Community Trust grant award winner; Impact Engine portfolio member; SXSW Civic Tech Innovation Pitch Competition runner-up; Chicago Innovation "Up and Comer" Award winner; and so much more.
We’re a tight-knit bunch of software developers with a passion for solving hard problems for the greater good. We’re involved in every step of the product development process with deep ownership from first ideas through to delivery. We’re seasoned Agile veterans who know the best teams pick from the many individual practices and tools instead of prescriptions. We’re unafraid of new technology and happily evaluate each on its merits to the organization and our team. That said, we prefer simple solutions and tried-and-true technology over immature bleeding edge tech.
We integrate Quality Assurance into our weekly delivery cycle so that we can quickly ship quality products and to insure that context is shared across product, test, and development. We automate tests for basic functionality allowing us more time to focus on the edge cases and user experience.
We believe that diversity of background and experience is key and work hard to build teams that reflect this.
