You've already taken the first big step to joining our community, where we're focused on becoming better Engineering Leaders.

Thank you, and welcome!

Our community mission

We've created a by-invitation-only membership organization focused exclusively on the leaders of Software Engineering teams.

Think of our community as a Peer Advisory Group. As your engineering peers, we share your daily challenges and goals. That's why we differentiate ourselves by allowing ONLY your peers into our group.

We offer a space to collaborate, share advice and learn from experts (and each other), in confidence - because every member of our community is protected by a Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

Inside the community today


  • Dozens of private forums for in-depth discussions of questions you can't ask anywhere else.
  • Legally Protected Conversations - Every member signs our Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement, so we can share stories, ask questions and offer advice in confidence.

Discussion forums


  • Jump onto private Slack channels to ask a quick question, chat or share news.
  • You'll belong to a group where you can comfortably relax and socialize with new friends and peers.

Slack channels

Weekly calls

  • Video conferencing each week for discussing hot topics, Q&A and meeting other members
  • Supports up to 50 attendees joining with video streaming and screen sharing

video conferencing


  • Optional monthly one-on-one leadership coaching and mentoring sessions with one of our Engineering Executives - there are no generic coaches here.
  • Build an ongoing relationship with a peer who has expertise and personal knowledge of your role - and who can hold you accountable to your goals.

The application process

Our application process is very simple, but we do have minimum membership requirements and require all members to sign a Mutual NDA.

Here's what to expect:

  1. The form below is the first step, where you enter your information and choose your membership level.
  2. Next, we verify that your LinkedIn profile matches our desired membership profile
  3. We ask you to electronically sign our Mutual Non-Disclosure Agreement to protect yourself and other members
  4. Finally we ask for payment according to your membership level
  5. You're in! You'll receive welcome emails with details how to login to our community Slack, Forums, video calls and more.

STOP! Before you continue..

This isn't intended to be a carefully-crafted sales funnel, pushing you quickly down to the 'make a sale' button.

We want to put our relationship first, just like when leading our software teams. Feel free to click around the site, read some articles and get to know us, or check our Frequently Asked Questions (some good information there).
