The people behind Exercism
About the team

Thousands of people have supported our vision and helped build Exercism.

Exercism relies on leadership team and staff, a wider team of approximately one hundred maintainers and key contributors, and small contributions from thousands of individuals. Beyond these contributions to our product, tens of thousands of members of our community have contributed by giving feedback and help to others.
