More about the Bootcamp
We’re bringing a new approach and attitude to education...
By launching this bootcamp, we’re adopting a smarter way to scout, educate and mentor. Unlocking unique growth opportunities for the next generation of tech leaders.
We are passionate about closing the diversity gap in the tech industry. In light of this, we wanted to ensure that this program is accessible for people from all backgrounds, not just those with a computer science background. We're creating a safe and inclusive working environment for everyone to have the opportunity to work in tech.
Who is the Beamery Bootcamp for?
It’s for people who have a love for coding and have a dream to pursue a career in Software Development. We're not looking for professional experience, but will need to have written lines of code in any language to be eligible. Most importantly we are looking for people who have soft skills, the right attitude and potential to grow with us.
To kick off our search for amazing talent, we’ve chosen Coding Black Females (CBF) as our exclusive channel for advertising. CBF is a nonprofit organisation, whose primary aim is to provide opportunities for Black female developers. However, anyone who believes they would be a great add is able to apply through the application link below.Apply here
