Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when your work environment helps you flourish. 

Have you ever been at work and felt like your colleagues just didn’t understand you, or maybe didn’t even try? Or have you ever worked up the courage to request accommodations, only to then have your needs minimized? 

If you want to hear about a company with a work environment just the opposite of that, stay tuned for today’s conversation with Maxwell Huffman and Jen Goubeaud, where we discuss how Aspiritech creates opportunities for their neurodivergent employees to thrive. 

Maxwell is Autistic himself and oversees operations across all of Aspiritech’s program lines, including software quality assurance, accessibility, and data services. And Jen, who has ADHD, is the program manager for the company’s accessibility program line. 

In this conversation, among other things, we discuss: 

  • How Brenda and Moshe Weitzberg founded Aspiritech to help their son find suitable employment, scaling it up from a kitchen-table start-up to a company with over 100 employees, 90% of which are Autistic

  • Common accommodations, such as written instructions and hybrid work options

  • Aspiritech’s hiring and training process

  • How to match skill sets to a job
