What is ectalent?

ectalent creates a win/win by searching for extraordinary “early-career” talent candidates from outside the United States who want to come to the U.S. for an extended client work placement to learn hands-on and make a major technical/business contribution.


Since 2014, ectalent has been connecting international ECTs with exciting Silicon Valley clients. Building on a model we pioneered over two decades ago, we’ve learned that you can’t treat this as a numbers game — it’s a relationship-building process. On the one hand, we know Silicon Valley and industry trends. On the other, we have built relationships with leading international universities and know how to find emerging talent outside the U.S.

Take the Plunge!

If you’re one of the world’s top students, recent grads or ECTs in CS, EE or related STEM disciplines and you can write software, take the plunge! Apply for our ectalent’s ECT program in Silicon Valley.
