Techtonica helps women and non-binary adults overcome barriers into the tech industry and partner companies fulfill their diverse technical talent needs.

Our Participants

Our full-time program participants go through a rigorous, lengthy application process that includes multiple workshops, interviews, and a code challenge. By the time each cohort graduates, they will have completed more than 1,000 hours of collaborative, project-based learning developed by industry professionals. Most partner companies that hire our graduates would like to employ them forever!

Street, sidewalks, and building in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco.


Techtonica started in the San Francisco Bay Area, where the tech industry, which needs to build more diverse technical teams, is causing displacement and increasing income disparity.

We asked, "What if we could help people most in danger of displacement to become economically empowered by asking tech companies that recognize the need for more diverse technical teams to sponsor and hire them?"

How it Works


Techtonica conducts free intro workshops.

We invite the most interested, resilient, independent, curious, open-minded, communicative, collaborative, confident, respectful attendees to apply to our full-time program.

Partner Companies

Companies sponsor the full-time program participants' pre-placement training and provide mentors.

They have a say in the curriculum and prepare to employ their top-rated interviewees at the end of the program.

Full-Time Program

As needed, accepted participants receive living stipends, laptops, and more than 1,000 hours of full-time, project-based, collaborative training.

We place as many graduates as possible with sponsor companies.
