About us

The driving force behind our goal to enhance Diversity in the Workplace

Our Story

Mission-driven tech isn’t just our ethos, it’s our history. In early 2016, our story started with a mission: How can we improve the lives of women and minorities in the workplace? After over a decade of climbing ladders in the tech world, Ilit Raz knew the odds were stacked against her as a woman in the industry. And if she had it tough, were others having issues with accessing the same opportunities? Through a series of eye- opening conversations with her peers, Ilit realized it was past time to work towards building a more equitable workplace for all.
That’s when she founded Joonko.

So….Why Joonko?

Junko Tabei (田部井 淳子, pronounced Joo-n-ko) was a Japanese mountain-climber who became the first woman to reach the summit of Mount Everest on May 16, 1975. Her relentless grit and perseverance throughout every seemingly impossible impasse she came upon reminds us that no challenge is too big to overcome.
