Binti is a mission-driven, technology company based in Oakland, California. We have a huge vision in foster care, adoption and beyond, and are growing our team quickly to help us get there.
Binti builds modern software with the goal of helping every child have a family. 400,000 children are currently in foster care in the US and millions are in orphanages around the world. 30% of the US’s homeless population and 25% of prison inmates experienced foster care as youth. It’s clear that children who don’t have families don’t have a fair chance at life. Binti wants to change that. By streamlining the foster/adoption process with user-friendly tools, we are working to address the nationwide shortage of foster families.
Since launching in 2016, we’ve helped over 30,000 families get approved to foster/adopt children, and over 8,000 social workers use Binti as their primary workspace in the office and the field. Binti partners with county and state governments as well as private agencies across 22 states to improve the foster care system. On average, agencies using Binti have increased the number of families approved by 80%, meaning that more children across the nation can have loving families.
Our Core Values
Put the child first
Embrace the best idea
Break through walls
Create love through empathy
We value empathy and seek every day to show empathy to each other at Binti, as well as to the children, families and social workers we work with through both our actions as well as the products we build. We value giving and receiving feedback to help us increase empathy toward each other. We strive to build a welcoming and inclusive workplace.
Empower with information
We strive to share data across the team so that others can make informed decisions as well as be motivated by the full context of the impact of their work. We also want to enable our customers to use data to make better decisions to improve outcomes for children.
