Who we are

Faced with the threat of mass extinction, a global pandemic and rising inequality, we cannot afford to merely fight symptoms, but have to instead radically rethink the economic and social systems that produce them.

We connect radical organisations working on bringing about post-capitalist economies, communities of care, or waste eradication with our growing community of software developers and designers. Our aim is to provide those who best understand the problems with the technological resources they need to successfully implement the solutions.

Effective Radicalism

Effective Altruism asks how we solve the world’s problems & pairs this with a theory of change: start by doing the most effective good you can. Effective Radicalism suggests that the best we can do, might be to change systemic conditions.


Our problems are too great and our systems too complex to go at it alone. The Radical Engineers believe that lasting change happens when humans set their egos aside and collaborate.

Don't disrupt, transition

Too often disruption takes the form of vulnerable people having their lives uprooted. Instead, we value strategies that help us transition to new economic systems.
