Careers at Makers

Inspired by the idea of discovering and unlocking potential in people for the benefit of 21st century business and society, we believe in alternative ways to learn how to code, how to be ready for work and how to be of value to an organisation. At our core, Makers combines tech education with employment possibilities that transform lives.

Mission: Our mission is to bridge the gap between tech education and employment. Launched in February 2013, Makers has graduated more than 2,500 students, who have gone on to join leading software companies including ThoughtWorks, Lyst, BSkyB, M&S, the Ministry of Justice, Deloitte Digital, TechStars, CompareTheMarket, Financial Times etc.
