Ola Otaiku

Founder


I decided to start Xuntos due to the lack of a platform that tackled unemployment in the computer science industry and supported students like myself. After many unsuccessful attempts at applying for internships and other opportunities at major companies. I thought of launching an organisation that provided support, training, and assistance when applying for jobs, internships, placements and shadowing opportunities.

Andre Hitchman

Co-Founder


Andre graduated from The University of Hull with a BSc in Computer Science, during which time he spent twelve months studying in Brisbane, Australia. Throughout his time at university, he worked on initiatives to help students be more entrepreneurial using technology. During this journey, he realised the lack of support and diversity within this industry which has led him today co-founding Xuntos.
