We build innovative, custom learning programs that help tech industry hirers discover top talent-whether they’re from low-income and first-generation backgrounds or have intersectional identities. Our team partners with yours to get a direct look at how work really happens. Then we help you prepare future job candidates with skills that meet your company’s needs to a T.
From workflows to office culture and beyond. We talk directly to your team to understand their work process. This enables us to sketch out bespoke programs that lean into the research of how humans learn—and emulate how your team, creates.
We co-design with you: dynamic learning programs that give you a preview of prospective candidates’ abilities. Our programs provide hands-on training to mirror real work life. They can be in-person or remote experiences. Days or weeks long. You choose.
We’re your thought leaders. We translate a job seeker’s unconventional training and make their value plain. Show their skills in the context of your company’s needs. Level up their presentation chops. Make their relevance to your team a no-brainer.
Part of our mission is to build transformative relationships between tech companies and job seekers from under-tapped, culturally-rich communities. In doing so, we help you forge meaningful career paths for more diverse talent. And help those individuals develop skills they can use forever in the ever-changing tech game.
