micro1’s long term vision
micro1 is a company that begins in lower case, but aspires to big solutions. We are fundamentally redefining how companies hire world-class software engineers and, ultimately, how those companies build software. Efficiently integrating humans with AI, we can achieve rarefied creative potential. Moreover, through this approach, we are democratizing software engineering, and we’re doing it from the bottom up.
Our ultimate goals require a twofold investment, powered by AI but not wholly dependent on it. Rather, we believe in the power of human engineering, enhanced exponentially by the acumen of AI. As we cast a long-term vision, we are conscious of the baby steps—the iterative essentials—that give grand visions the pragmatism of possibility.
The Present: AI-Powered Recruitment Engine
In our first phase, we’ve built an AI-powered recruitment engine to change the way companies hire world-class software engineers. When companies need to add a full-stack engineer to their team, we instantly provide them with matching, pre-vetted profiles from our stable of established talent. These engineers are not just good but exceptional, vetted by our own AI tool that refines our talent pool to the top 1%. Trained through our own propriety course on “How to Become an AI-Powered Engineer,” these engineers form micro-teams that generate macro impact. These micro teams are the future—literally and figuratively. As companies hire our engineers, our engineers shape companies’ futures; as a broader economic phenomenon, micro teams are the most proficient form of engineering problem-solving. So, once companies interview our candidates, they can confidently hire them within two simple clicks of the keyboard.
2nd Step: the AI Software Engineer
In our impending phase, we will develop an AI system that can build prototypes within minutes. By making all ideas actionable, and even affordable, we make engineering productivity accessible…for all. Our process is, and aims to be, simple. Where a user defines the scope of work intended for an MVP (minimum viable product), they will receive the software within five minutes! Reaching this goal requires an iterative process: we must front-load heavy human labor with only a thin layer of AI. As we progress, humans and AI share the collaborative load equally before eventually reaching a state where the layer of AI thickens to a 99% share, reducing human inputs to a mere 1%. At this stage, we’ll have reduced our MVP development cycle to mere minutes. More than that, we’ll have invented a true English Programming Language, a new paradigm for writing code. We will have empowered the public to describe the scope of their projects, tailored those goals with precision, generated the software essential to those outcomes, and migrated from hardware to assembly to C++ to Python to micro1 as the final iteration in the progression of higher-level programming.
Ours is a macro vision that relies on micro visionaries.
