Founder And Cto

Jessica McKellar is a repeat founder and the CTO of fintech unicorn Pilot, an accounting firm powered by software.

Tech intersects the criminal legal system in Jessica’s work with The Last Mile, a job training and re-entry program that has implemented the first computer programming curriculum inside US prisons. She teaches Python at San Quentin State Prison in California, hires formerly incarcerated software engineers, and uses that bridge between the tech industry and prisons to get people activated and acting for decarceration.
