What is it about?

SignCoders is a social startup where we create digital career opportunities for people with disabilities. We are currently focusing on barrier-free employment for people with hearing impairments. People with disabilities are underrepresented in digital professions. Society offers mainly low-skilled opportunities for them. We are changing this situation by training and employing them. Our concept is pretty unique. Social innovation is at the heart of our approach to open the door to the talent of the hearing impaired community.
