The Developer Health Mission

G2i is committed to improving the mental, physical, and emotional health and well-being of developers. It means building tools, resources and guidance to support our developer community, and becoming an uplifting force in the industry.

We match highly skilled developers with strong development teams, but we’re much more than a marketplace. We're developing real solutions to help developers elevate their capabilities, improve work-life balance, avoid burnout, recover from burnout, and more.

We help our clients create supportive and productive work environments for their engineers. Turning them into workplaces that combat — not create — burnout. Places where developers do their best work. And thrive in all areas of life.

Say yes to only the Hell Yes's

Our days are filled with work, but can we confidently say that work is driving forward our vision? Being judicious and intentional allows us to put more effort into fewer things meaning we get the bigger things done.

Async Communication

How do you create more efficient work practices? Async communication is key. By reducing unnecessary meetings, allowing team members to prioritize their mental health and setting healthy boundaries from constant notifications, you're promoting individual agency and autonomy.

Flexible Schedules

Prioritizing developer health means removing rigid work schedules and understanding that each individual operates at a unique pace and fashion. By restructuring your yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily schedules to push back against rigidity, you're helping your team members do their best work.

Restful Work

Restful work is a work week that you look forward to — a place where you do your best work, yet it’s just one part of your life. G2i is committed to helping developers discover their restful work week, helping them become better parents, partners, friends, and employees along the way. 

The Developer Health Fund

The Developer Health Fund is a donor-backed program providing assistance to those in need.

Developers can apply for any assistance that supports their mental, physical, or emotional health and well-being. Allocations from the fund can be used for (but not limited to) the following:
