Your career in tech starts here

We're looking for people who are interested in a potential job in tech. These participants will be asked to complete two beginner Treehouse Courses in order to determine who enjoys coding and wants to commit to learning for the 7-8 month program. (Don’t worry - you don’t need to know anything about programming!)

Earn a Treehouse Techdegree

Up to 10 finalists are selected during the week of September 25th to begin the Techdegree course starting on October 1st. This 7-8 month course can be done at times that are more convenient for you (evenings, weekends, lunch breaks, etc) and typically takes about three to four hours per day. You'll be mentored by diverse tech professionals, Treehouse staff and program staff.

Get a paid apprenticeship

After completion of the 7-8 month Techdegree program, graduates will enter a 3-month paid apprenticeship with MINDBODY in San Luis Obispo, CA. After the apprentices are placed, program staff will continue to support and mentor them. Treehouse has also created a Treehouse Apprenticeship Playbook™ which gives MINDBODY a playbook to follow to make the apprenticeship successful.

Become employed full-time as a Junior Developer

Providing the apprenticeship is successful, apprentices are likely to receive an offer of employment with MINDBODY starting at a minimum of $50,000/year, including healthcare coverage and other great benefits.
