About Gun.io


Our Story

By engineers, for engineers

Gun.io finds, vets, and places senior engineering talent on technical teams around the world. We were born from the Open Source community as a way to connect open source developers with amazing gigs.


We spent years building a community of the best technical talent in the States - now several thousand strong.


We take our cues from the engineers in our fold: what’s blocking the best talent from working with the best teams? What is impeding fast, scalable growth for software companies? Those are the problems we think are worth solving - and around which we’ve built our business.

Hiring the best-fit engineer shouldn't be an expensive bet.

We believe that like-minded, like-working technologists should be able to find each other quickly, no luck required.

Built from engineering DNA and perfected during thousands of billed hours, Gun.io exists to help engineers hire each other - without the risk.

“I can't believe you got me on a video call with an engineer on the same day. I've used a bunch of others sites and it's obvious your process is so much tighter. Plus, the level of talent was awesome.”
