Who is this for?

Engineers looking to secure their career in tech

Staying afloat in the turbulent tech industry can be a daunting task. As an engineer, your technical skills may get you far, but how will you ensure security and longevity with technology constantly shifting? One wrong step could cost it all.
You're asking yourself:

If you don’t know where you want to go, but just run fast, you can end up nowhere fast.

common misbelief

Don’t mistake motion for progress

Engineers may think developing the latest technical skills is needed to secure their jobs; however, this isn't always enough. With an ever-changing and competitive workforce lurking around every corner, focusing on those hot technologies like ML or Web3 won’t be enough for engineers not to fall behind.

Being technically strong alone isn’t going to give you job security.

Hi, I'm Jean!

I'm the Founder of Exaltitude. I’ve been working in tech for the past 15 years as an engineer, an engineering manager, and a team-builder. I was the 19th engineer at WhatsApp and worked with Facebook as an Engineering Manager for six years after the $19B acquisition.
I’ve mentored and coached many Software Engineers and Managers from diverse backgrounds. Over time, I started seeing patterns. Many people are searching for clarity — Where am I going and how do I get there?
That's what inspired me to design the EXA curriculum to help engineers get the opportunities they deserve.

Hi, I'm Soyoung!

As a successful coach and mother of four, I feel called to help people secure their brightest futures. With Exaltitude, my trainings provide an inspiring mix of goal planning strategies, productivity techniques and leadership development insights — helping fellows tap into the power they have deep within themselves. In rare moments away from work or family life you can find me reading or whipping up some pescetarian keto deliciousness — not bad for someone who's first job was in a startup in 2000!
