Our Mission

Us in Technology is on a mission to help diversify the technology industry by training and placing minorities and historically excluded individuals in sales, marketing, coding, engineering, and revenue roles with top tech companies committed to attracting, retaining and developing underrepresented talent.

About the Founder

Kendrick Trotter

At just 27 years old Kendrick Trotter is the founder and CEO of Us in Technology (UIT), a virtual community, job placement, mentoring and training platform aimed at bridging the gap between hiring companies and qualified underrepresented talent.

Us in Technology is on a mission to help diversify Silicon Valley and beyond by educating and placing minorities and historically excluded individuals in sales, marketing, coding, engineering, and revenue roles with top Tech companies committed to attracting, retaining and developing them.

Some of Us in Technology’s partners include such notable companies as ServiceTitan, Zscaler, Airtable, among many others.

Before launching UIT in 2019, Trotter was an award-winning sales manager operating primarily within the cybersecurity space. 

Successfully recruited into the tech industry himself in 2017 while moonlighting as an Uber driver, Trotter picked up a successful tech executive and the pair struck up a conversation about his career path that would not only change his professional trajectory but his life mission: to give others the same opportunities he’d been given to succeed in one of the world’s most lucrative career fields.
