FAQ

Who are you?

Our coaches have been in senior engineering and leadership roles in FAANG and Unicorns. They have been hiring managers themselves and have years of experience in helping people with their careers. 

Why is it called Shift Left?

The name came from bitwise shift left operation (x << 1) which essentially same as multiplying the integer by 2 (x * 2). Like the Shift Left operator, our goal is to be the multiplier in your career.

Does it work?

We are like your personal gym trainer. If you are motivated enough to hit the gym every day and know what routine works for you the best then you don’t really need a trainer. Similarly here if things are already working for you then you should rather double down on that. But if you think clear guidance and motivation will help you to be consistent and confident then this is the right tool for you. You will learn directly from people who have been there and done that. 

 

What’s the “not so secret” sauce?

We are calling our learning system the “Top sort method” after one of our favorite algorithms. We did not invent this process out of the blue though. We assembled some well known existing practices in sports and businesses (like Kata and Mastermind). We have experimented and refined our learning process over the last couple of years. We have mentored our friends and coworkers to become the best of themselves.
