National coding bootcamp company expands to Houston
Tech Elevator, a national coding education provider, opened its latest campus last month in the Houston area.
The new facility, located within Industrious Westchase, at 2101 CityWestBlvd, will teach students through its well-known coding bootcamps, as well as provide locally focused career placement support and a co-working space.
The company has named Brian Candido, who has more than 10 years experience in career services, as Market Leader for Tech Elevator Houston. He'll oversee campus operations, admissions, student and alumni engagement, event coordination and business development at the new site.
“Houston is known as the energy capital of the world, but its tech ecosystem is far more diverse than that," Candido said in a statement. "From space technology to biotech and everything in between, Houston has a thriving tech scene that is making waves on the national and international stage.”
The Houston campus will host one of its first events, Women, Wine and Web Design, on May 3. Laptops with Chrome or Firefox are required. Click here for more information.
Tech Elevator's immersive online bootcamps are offered in 14-week, full-time, part-time, in-person and National Live Remote sessions. The Houston campus is the company's ninth location in the U.S., with others located in Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington D.C.; Columbus, Ohio; Jersey City, New Jersey; and Wilmington, North Carolina.
Anthony Hughes, co-Founder and CEO, said the company is expanding to Houston after seeing an increased local interest in Tech Elevator's bootcamps.
“We’re expanding our footprint into Houston to meet that growing demand and we look forward to making a big impact with local individuals, local companies and communities,” Hughes said in a statement.
The company has placed close to 3,000 students in technology jobs, and claims a graduation rate of 93 percent and a job placement rate of 88 percent, according to a release. It is now accepting student applications for its 2023 coding bootcamp cohorts.
