We build high-performing remote teams for startups worldwide, focusing on web technologies
We met in 2016 while working at a telecom USA startup. It was four years before remote work became widespread as a result of the global pandemic.
Back then, we had already been working remotely for several years, and I vividly remember how hard it was to convince anyone to work in such a way. Managers’ fear of losing control, tying productivity to staying at the office, poor project management – all that forced people to work in offices, and doomed many talented people to remain unemployed because of their geographical disadvantage. To us, that was utter nonsense, and we couldn’t bear that status quo.
In 2018, we started 11Sigma with a simple vision: to create something more than a workplace, to create a global community of talented folks. A company that energizes, supports personal growth and emphasizes a healthy work-life balance.
To achieve our mission, we became dedicated to connect and support exceptional people with non-toxic startups that drive innovation.
Remote work is our lifestyle and belief system. It reaches deep down to what motivates and energizes us. It’s a statement. 11Sigma is about exploring – both literal, as in journey around the world, as well as trying new things, learning, and discovering.
11Sigma is a company of self-driven, daring, and curious problem solvers. We feel energized by discovering and learning new things.
We are dedicated to building outstanding teams that contribute to creating innovative technology and move the world forward.

Karol Maciaszek, CTO
Programming became his passion around the 3rd degree of primary school. Before 6th grade finished a couple of big projects, including invoicing software in “cloud” (there was no such term back then); an eBay-like site, or a couple of commercial websites. Simultaneously he started to develop a network providing fast internet access in his local area of living. That initiative evolved to 500-clients ISP-company with whole city coverage. He finished the Intelligent Decision Support System specialty at Poznań Technical University. Worked for enterprise companies like Allegro or Roche as long as small startups. Genetic algorithms enthusiast, remote-work evangelist, problem solver, business/technical mediator.
Personally, father of 3 miraculous humans, repairing/building fanatic, and running addict.
