Seven years after the great recession, nearly half of young university grads are still underemployed. Working professionals are experiencing their jobs changing amidst the rise of technology and automation threatens over 800 million jobs. At the same time, software is eating the world, disrupting every major industry, and creating millions of new technology jobs that companies are eager to fill. This is the skills gap. Our mission is closing it.
Six years ago we changed the face of education by creating free interactive coding courses explored by over 45 million people. As we look to the future, we're focused on helping anyone get the skills they need for the jobs they want. We aim to bridge the gap: between companies and the workforce, people and their dream jobs.
