As an autistic-majority company, we’re a resource for talent. We integrate our technologists into client companies as consultants or contract-to-hire employees, performing as software developers, data analysts, QA engineers, and more. Clients experience our autistic teams first-hand, achieving diversity goals and filling talent gaps with a low-risk and untapped workforce.
The extraordinary talents of our technologists are what makes auticon unique – their cognitive diversity allows them to bring new perspectives to what are often seen to be unsolvable problems.
The world’s most innovative companies are seeing the benefits of adding our autistic technologists to their teams:
Autistic adults often have extraordinary cognitive abilities, such as logic, pattern recognition, precision, sustained concentration, and an ability to intuitively spot errors, yet many find it difficult to secure or maintain mainstream employment. While autistic strengths are highly individualized, academic research shows advantages emerge:
auticon’s technologists and clients are supported by our job coaches who ensure that the technologists’ work environments enable them to deliver to their full professional potential. Our talented job coaches promote inclusion and well-being and are integral to making sure our technologists feel supported in their assignments. Most importantly, they provide clients with support and information regarding autism in the workplace and can convey feedback between the client and the technologist.
Our job coaches typically have a background in clinical psychology, performance coaching, managing anxiety disorders, special education, and vocational rehabilitation.
