Colorado-based Techtonic enters Nebraska with an industry-leading Software Development Apprenticeship Program.

FREMONT, CA: Colorado-based Techtonic is a leader in developing enterprise technology solutions, and empowering a diverse tech workforce, enters Nebraska with an industry-leading Software Development Apprenticeship Program. The program will prove that it is unnecessary to have a college degree or a certificate from a coding boot camp to enter the technology industry.

According to Heather Terenzio, Founder and CEO of Techtonic, "The tech industry is beginning to realize the importance of diversification, both in talent and location, and we are honored to be leaders in these shifts. Successful careers in the tech sector should be open to all; underrepresented demographics and overlooked communities in middle America. We are thrilled to bring Techtonic to Nebraska to tap into the incredible and diverse talent in the state."

Techtonic's highly selective paid Apprenticeship Program will welcome people from every background into the classroom for 12 weeks. During this time, they will go through rigorous training on cutting-edge platforms before going onto the development floor to get 40 weeks of hands-on experience in writing actual code for real Techtonic clients. Presently, 100 percent of graduates from Techtonic's Apprenticeship Program has received a salaried job offer.

"Techtonic has the expertise to radically transform the workforce pipeline and address the overwhelming demand for tech talent in Nebraska," says Jona Van Deun, President Nebraska Tech Collaborative. "With nearly fifteen years of providing product-driven software solutions, and a fully accredited software development apprenticeship program, we are thankful and proud to have Techtonic as a partner of the Nebraska Tech Collaborative!"

To make technology careers more comprehensive, Techtonic has even introduced the Coalition for Diversity in Tech Talent, intending to place 100 diverse or underrepresented candidates. Coalition partners will sponsor it into their Software Development Apprenticeship Program by January 2022.
