About Binti

Binti, Inc is a Series A mission-driven start-up in Oakland, CA. We believe every child deserves the care and support of a loving family. Binti builds software with the goal of helping every child have a family. 400,000 children are currently in foster care in the US and millions are in orphanages around the world. 30% of the US’s homeless population and 25% of prison inmates are former foster youth. It’s clear that children who don’t have families don’t have a fair chance at life and Binti wants to change this. Binti is a mission-driven, technology company based in Oakland, California.

Job Description

Binti’s mission is to increase equality of opportunity and help every person have a fair chance at life. With over 400,000 youth in foster care in the United States, we are reinventing child welfare through technology to help every child find a safe, loving, and stable family.
We partner with state, county, and private foster care agencies around the country, helping them recruit and approve foster parents more quickly and empowering social workers by eliminating administrative paperwork. Our software also helps match families with children and helps track services to biological families to get on their feet and reunify with their children. Binti currently works with over 140 foster care agencies across 22 states. Rhode Island, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Washington have signed on to make our software their statewide solution.  
We have a measurable impact. For example, we help agencies approve 80% more foster/adoptive parents per year, 16% faster. We save 20-40% social worker time. We are making a meaningful dent in the shortage of foster/adoptive parents and helping more children have families. 
Binti is a mission-driven software company based in Oakland, CA. We have raised our Series A led by Founders Fund and other investors include First Round Capital and Kapor Capital.
