- Interview with Ariel Camus Michael Levitt 20:45
Ariel is the Founder and CEO of Microverse, an online school that helps anyone become a high-paid, international software developer. The best part? The program costs $0 until you get employed.
They are the first ones to scale peer-to-peer model (no other school/university has been able to do it).
Microverse has also raised over $17M+ and was part of the Y Combinator 2019 Batch.
Thousands of people from over 100 countries apply to join Microverse every month, and hundreds of remotely-employed alumni from Colombia to Nigeria are making 3-10x their previous salary working for companies like Microsoft, VMware, Huawei, and Globant.
Before starting Microverse, Ariel was the Co-Founder and CEO of TouristEye, a mobile app for planning trips and discovering new things to do while traveling. He grew the app to 1M users in 180+ countries before selling it to Lonely Planet in 2013.
After the sale, Ariel worked as a Senior Product Manager of Lonely Planet’s website, with over 150 million unique visitors per year.
Topics Ariel would be happy to discuss on your podcast include:
The instant solution to the massive shortage of software engineering talent and why ignoring the solution will make the problem even worse.
How remote hiring can help tech companies build a more diverse workplace.
The future of work and 2022 investment opportunities in the new world of remote work.
To get a sense of his style, Ariel was recently a guest on the New World Of Work Podcast, where he talked about how remote work is opening the borders to emerging talent hotbeds.
