Developer Health

For the developers that join our platform and the clients we work with, we provide tools for creating healthy and ideal work experiences. 

G2i is the only hiring platform that puts developer health first. 

The Developer Health Initiative

Developer Health is G2i’s commitment to supporting and improving the mental, physical, and emotional health and well-being of developers. It means assisting the developer community with resources and guidance, and becoming an uplifting force within the tech industry.

G2i matches highly skilled developers with strong development teams, but we’re not just a recruitment platform. We provide resources that help developers elevate their capabilities and improve their work/life balance, help them avoid burnout, recover from that burnout, and more. We build those developer health best practices into our business, before sharing those guidelines with our client companies.

We help our clients create supportive and productive work environments for all their employees. Workplaces that combat — not create — burnout. Workplaces where developers do their best work. And workplaces that thrive due to support at all levels of the business.

Say yes to only the Hell Yes's

Our days our 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 challenge constant meetings and create more efficient work practices? Async communication is key, with benefits such as prioritizing individual agency and autonomy, reducing unnecessary meetings that needlessly fill up the work work, allowing team members to prioritize their mental health and set healthy boundaries from constant notifications, and more.

Flexible Schedules

Prioritizing developer health involves the removal of rigid work schedules and the understanding that each individual operates at a unique pace and in a unique fashion. Developer health helps restructure your yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly, and daily schedules to push back against rigidity and help 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, leading us to becoming 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:
