We are the Information Technology team of Wycliffe Associates, an aggressively growing non-profit that is helping to eradicate global scripture poverty. God’s blessed us with the resources to pay for high performance team-members. This isn’t the kind of place where you’re guaranteed employment for life, but it is the kind of place that rewards intensity, ambition, drive, and creativity.
In the summer of 2013 Mark Stedman was asked to assume leadership of Wycliffe Associates Information Technology team. Mark was excited to return to technical leadership, with a focus on both internal business software and a mandate to support the creation of translation tools for mother tongue translators.
The team has grown to over a dozen full-time people plus an internship called 8 Weeks of Code that adds comp sci students every semester.
