SEO Tech Developer

The SEO Tech Developer gives you the training, curriculum, and mentoring necessary to compete for entry-level tech roles at tech companies and startups offering top-tier compensation and opportunities for growth. 

Our Tech Developer is an intensive, free immersion program, designed to propel Black, Latinx, and Native American Computer Science and Engineering college sophomores to the next level of technical and problem-solving skills, all while preparing you to land an internship in technology before graduating from college. 

Why do you need the SEO Tech Developer? 

  • Only 5% of employees at these leading tech firms identify as Black, Latinx, or Native American.
  • The entry-level salary at a leading technology company like Facebook, Google, and LinkedIn is more than $180,000, but the national average entry-level salary in a technology role is only $88,000

Our SEO Tech Developer program can help you land a role at one of these top companies.

Hear What Our Students Have to Say

“Participating in the SEO Tech Developer this summer was one of the best programming learning experiences I've ever had! Before this program, I felt very inexperienced and as though I was so far from being able to program anything useful or interesting. SEO Tech Developer really increased my confidence!”
