Quotes

Hiring norms, including degree requirements, can box out the very talent employers want and need. Our model offers a new paradigm by enabling our clients to build software with a leading firm while simultaneously building a team based on skills and potential, rather than pedigree.

Heather Terenzio
Founder

The heart of everything we do at Techtonic centers around our apprenticeship model. By removing barriers to entry with a paid, hands-on training program, we organically bring diversity into a historically homogenous industry. Our mission to find and train untapped tech talent has created a pool of software developers made up of women, BIPOC, Veterans, and other often overlooked candidates in America.
