Active Founders

Alex Chiou

Founder of Taro (joinTaro.com), which provides engineers with bite-sized actionable advice from top tech talent. Content is organized by company, level, and problem area. I love to build: I've published ~30 apps with 3 million installs combined in my free time. In high school, I built a YT channel with 50M+ video views. My cofounder Rahul and I organically built a community of 17K+ people called "Tech Career Growth", which inspired Taro. Prior, I was a TL at Robinhood, Meta, and Course Hero.
