We have replaced the shareholder with a charitable trust and our metric for success is employee satisfaction and how much we can donate to the social sector.

Binary Crate is all about fixing the gap in the jobs market. Right now a lot of the old jobs are going to disappear and be replaced with new tech jobs. Manual jobs like truck driving will be automated through robots and AI. The companies that are building the future are building it using coders and programmers. We are facing a tight labour market for coders and programmers. Just look at the difference between the jobs being advertised and the short list of people looking for employment. Binary Crate is about working with students (primarily from low socio-economic backgrounds) and their teachers (mostly public schools) to get them ready for the future jobs. We want to give students a positive motivation to learn by allowing them an easy way to produce fun, social applications and games and learn coding at the same time. We are looking for passionate, switched on and energetic individuals who are interested in working in this field. At the moment this is a sweat equity only position (Sorry we don't have enough cash to pay cash wages).

Our tech is a web app using pypyjs to get Python running in the browser so students can learn a real programming language but the setup is easy for the schools, they just browse our page. We use our own distributed database technology to reduce costs (we don't need to provision server side databases, students don't need to build Rest Apis to get there projects to work) Interested? Contact I will be at conference all week
