What we're about

It started with some real frustrations at work. Something felt wrong — misaligned — and we started having conversations about what we wanted to be doing, what would make work meaningful. Those amazing conversations resulted in some real stuff that changed how we live our work/life.

Because we care about beautiful code

we hack with intention

Because we care about geek joy

we encourage geeks to code from the heart

Because we care about what’s alive in the people we touch

we speak and listen with courageous curiosity

Because we care about what emerges when we collaborate

we show up with confident humility

Our name, maitria, comes from the sanskrit word maitri (pronounced like “my tree”), meaning unconditional friendliness, loving-kindness, connection. The name Maitreya comes from this same root. We use words like these to remember the mindfulness that we want to bring to our work.
