We are building a more accessible and inclusive open source ecosystem where every line of code makes a difference.
Ovio empowers millions of developers to become active open source contributors. We want to make sure that every developer can contribute with their skills to meaningful opportunities
What makes us unique?
We believe that open source is about people, not code.
Wether it’s one or one hundred contributors, open code is created and maintained by people who need to be rewarded for their contributions
Open source is part of every technology, developer's career and company. But the system is broken and only a few contribute. There is a urgent need to transition from consumers of open source to contributors.
Ovio curates opportunities by project and by task to make it easy to find a way to contribute that matches your interests, skills, and desired level of commitment.
We place people before technology and work to maximize social benefit. We consider the impact of our work on communities, other living beings, ecosystems and the world.
We value teamwork and collective actions. Our success is driven by our ability to build connections across the world and between sectors, break silos and foster exchange of competencies.
We embrace positive change and continuously work to improve the lives of others whether it’s harnessing market forces for social good, inspiring purposeful goals for people or helping civil agents work together.
What is better than having fun while changing the world? We value adventures, challenges and happiness to solve social challenges.
Who we are
After receiving a Master of Arts in Conflict, Security and Development from Sussex University, I started my career as a project manager for multiple social impact organizations around the world such as United Nations.
When I moved to San Francisco, I was shocked by local nonprofits struggling to leverage technology solutions. That is why I decided to co-create Ovio. I am most passionate about refugee rights and women’s rights. My appetite for social justice oriented my career towards humanitarian and social activities.
After a Master of Science in Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University, I started my career as a software engineer in Silicon Valley. My desire to code for good led me to work for a tech nonprofit, Bayes Impact.
Witnessing the huge need for technology in the social impact sector, I decided to co-create Ovio. I am passionate about climate change and human rights. Since graduate school, I have engaged my time and skills to support these causes.
I am a data scientist and software engineer with experience working on web engineering and design, embedded systems platform architecture and machine learning.
After studying Physics, Mechanical Engineering (with a focus on adaptive control theory) and Computer Science at Dartmouth College, I spent the next 9 years in a variety of software and analyst positions, ranging from programming smart HVAC systems for high performance homes to developing data pipelines, storage and tools for an education startup working with satellites. I love mountains and spend most of my free time skiing, rock climbing and mountain biking.
