Who we are

We empower underrepresented ethnic minority professionals and students to successfully navigate their careers

OUR STORY

How It Began

As associates on the Goldman Sachs trading floor, Porter and Ryan met and realized there was a considerable gap in connecting talented underrepresented minority candidates with businesses committed to creating a more diverse workforce. They knew other people like them – underrepresented minorities – and decided to build a business to help great companies create a scalable pipeline of diverse employees.

They left Goldman in the summer of 2014 to create Jopwell – the first hiring and recruitment platform dedicated to connecting today’s top companies with talented diverse candidates from the most underrepresented minority groups. Today, Jopwell connects the best and brightest minority candidates with the top employment opportunities at the most desirable places to work across different industries nationwide.
