    What students are saying

            For anyone new to leadership or simply looking for ways to level up as a human being, EXA is a godsend. Jean and Soyoung are deeply experienced in their fields; just having access to their sage insight is well worth the cost. Think of what it's like to have a thoughtful, articulate, caring senior engineering manager in your corner.

    Software Engineer @Google
            The value of a good coach is a great investment: the value of Exaltitude far outweighs the cost by more than 10x, whether you want to get promoted fast, become a manager or build a strong network. I started this program between jobs, and their advice for starting a new job was so much more valuable than what I could've searched for online.

    Software Engineer @Block
            Most of the resources online are like "Hello World" program in the "Getting Started" section of the doc. EXA is a combination of Stack Overflow (peer to peer answers), Senior Engineer's help (experienced mentorship), well written docs (tangible tools and example to try out) to help us write less bugs in this new language, known as our career."

    Software Engineer @Intuit
            I recently got promoted to a Senior Software Engineer position, and I joined EXA to grow in more soft-skill areas of being a leader and learning to advocate for myself. The program provided me with the resources I needed to develop both my personal and professional skills and helped me build confidence in myself to thrive!

    Jane Fong - Cohort 5

    Senior Software Engineer @FloQast
            Before I joined the program, I felt parallelized, not knowing which path to take in my career. I left the program with clarity and now I’m happy with my current role. Self exploration was highlighted on the website, but I didn't realize how powerful these exercises would be. The lessons from the program isn't something you can learn from books.

            Time with Soyoung and Jean helped distill my most important tasks and how to stay focused during the workweek. Live Sessions gave me exercises for self awareness as I try to level up. The learning and support from Exaltitude helped me feel more ready to take on new challenges with confidence!
    Lauren Albert - Cohort 3

    Lauren Albert - Cohort 3

    Software Developer @Shopify
            Through the program, I learned to view experience from the perspective of the companies and hiring managers. I realized I should highlight how my work helped not only my team but also the org. I also learned to back them up with data. I polished my interview answers with the new learnings from the program and landed a very senior-level position!

    Cloud Software Development Engineer @Intel
            Through the program, I enjoyed hearing about experiences and opinions outside of my own as it helped me define my beliefs and my career growth. It has been quite beneficial to hear from my peers and Jean and Soyoung, and understand their perspectives on the different paths they took and the lessons they learned.

            Exaltitude helped me navigate so many avenues of my current career path and empowered me in several spaces to know my worth, take risks, and challenge the status quo. With the support and education from the EXA program, I was able to land a position that better aligned with my personal and professional career goals.

    Software Engineer @Doximity
            I went straight from a Software Engineering IC role to being a startup founder to becoming a CTO. There's so much to being a good leader and learning how to connect with your team that I had to learn, and one of the steps I took toward developing those skills was through EXA. If you're considering leadership or need mentorship, check them out.

    CTO @serviceMob, Inc
            You get out of Exalitude what you put in. Anyone can take a couple of quizzes on their own, however connecting with accomplished individuals who readily act as sounding boards and are willing to share their differing perspectives is worth its weight in gold. Even after graduating over a year ago, I still get feedback when facing difficulties!
    Alena Lee - Cohort 3

    Alena Lee - Cohort 3

    Automation Engineer @Stealth Startup
            During the program, I got valuable insights from Jean and Soyoung and other fellows on how to level up in my career, identify my strengths, and promote myself.‍ I realized that my achievements might be empirically valuable, but if I can't demonstrate their value they won't help me move forward. 
    Kalisa Falzone - Cohort 1

    Kalisa Falzone - Cohort 1

    Senior Software Engineer @Dray Alliance
            I joined EXA with the question, "What should my Software Engineering career look like?" I learned about myself in the process of deep introspections and met a good mix of peers from diverse backgrounds and experience levels. Now I have a clear understanding of where I want to go and how I can get there. Soon after the program, I got promoted!

    Software Engineer @Deliverr
            After working in tech for close to a decade, I joined EXA to figure out what I want to achieve next in my career. The program helped me create space to focus on important questions—what am I looking for, how I’m learning and growing? Now I think about how I can use the lessons learned to help junior engineers and it’s helping me grow as a leader.

    Software Engineer @ Brex
            Prior to joining Exaltitude, I didn't have access to advice for my career because I didn't know many people in tech. I can now always get back to the tools and lessons that have been introduced in the program and talk to the new network for advice. Thank you, Jean and Soyoung!

    Zahrah Ayu Afifah Febriani - Cohort 5

    Software Engineer @Kargo Technologies
            When I joined the program, I was at a career fork, deciding between technical lead vs. eng manager route. Now I understand the expectations I needed to be successful and I learned the tools needed to make better decisions. I have shifted my goals toward a holistic future rather than a purely technical mindset.

    Jean Lee

    Founder of Exaltitude

    Hi, I'm Jean!

    I'm the Founder of Exaltitude. I’ve been working in tech for the past 15 years as an engineer, an engineering manager, and a team-builder. I was the 19th engineer at WhatsApp and worked with Facebook as an Engineering Manager for six years after the $19B acquisition.

    I’ve mentored and coached many Software Engineers and Managers from diverse backgrounds. Over time, I started seeing patterns. Many people are searching for clarity — Where am I going and how do I get there?

    That's what inspired me to design the EXA curriculum to help engineers get the opportunities they deserve.

    Executive Coach and Co-founder of Exaltitude

    Hi, I'm Soyoung!

    As a successful coach and mother of four, I feel called to help people secure their brightest futures. With Exaltitude, my trainings provide an inspiring mix of goal-planning strategies, productivity techniques, and leadership development insights — helping fellows tap into the power they have deep within themselves. In rare moments away from work or family life, you can find me reading or whipping up some pescetarian keto deliciousness — not bad for someone whose first job was in a startup in 2000!
