Backed by Sequoia and Tiger Global, Scaler is one of India's leading ed-tech and upskilling firms that aims to solve the tech talent gap worldwide, starting with India. The curriculum trains students (in their 1st/2nd/3rd year of college) and also working professionals (with 1-6 years of work experience) through intensive, live classes, teaching them the basics of computer science and also making them job-ready.

Anshuman Singh has also represented Team India twice at the prestigious ACM ICPC World Finals.
