When people join On Deck, they're joining a community that will serve their professional needs through the twists and turns of a career - equipped with the skills, network, knowledge, and tools to support them along the way.
Our Community Platform team is building the next generation of social network with the On Deck Universe as our userbase.

The goal of our product is to match and connect people with the answers, information, resources, and people to realize their potential.
On Deck is fundamentally only as strong as our ability to scale the magic of a close-knit community to thousands, (hopefully soon even millions), of ambitious people. It's more than just a 'cohorts' business; we're building a platform to serve the needs builders of tomorrow. If you want to read more about platforms:
