About Us

Helping you and your team thrive at work.

Our Mission

CareerLark was founded by Ellen and Gowri with one simple promise: to give employees the guidance and recognition they deserve to perform their best. CareerLark’s mission is to help companies create transparent, inclusive, and high-performing cultures that translate to better business performance.

Our Team

We're a team of technologists excited about creating the future of talent management. Don't we all have stories of feedback frustrations and ways in which our workplace could be better? Here are some of ours.


Ellen Choi

Ellen did Operations, including HR and Data Science, at Google and had the awesome privilege of learning from excellent managers how to create a high-performing culture of transparency and continuous feedback. She was giving and receiving micro-feedback before it became trendy and has been advocating this within her teams since then.


Gowri Rao

Gowri observed from her product and technology leadership roles at Amazon, Twilio, and Zynga that great employees often leave companies because they are not given sufficient guidance or career growth opportunities. She realized that solving this problem with continuous high-quality feedback would have an immeasurable impact on employee satisfaction and retention.

Our Investors

CareerLark is supported by innovative HR leaders from Fortune 500s and technology companies as well as leading investors.
