The company hopes to train the next generation to meet Austin’s ever-increasing need for top tech talent.
"Austin's tech scene has been growing for years, and the city became a top relocation spot for tech talent during the pandemic," said Jake Hadden, DigitalCrafts CEO. "DigitalCrafts provides an opportunity to quickly learn in-demand skills, and our students graduate job-ready, providing needed talent for the increasing number of companies that have flocked to Austin.”
DigitalCrafts is partnering with Capital Factory to provide space and local resources for Austin-based students. Capital Factory serves Austin’s technology community, offering students mentorship and networking opportunities. Capital Factory’s membership includes venture portfolio companies, large corporations, investors, mentors and more, each receiving the support they need to grow their organizations.
DigitalCrafts offers a hybrid training option, delivering live, online training at an accelerated pace. Students may attend classes from anywhere with an internet connection, or they may stream on-site at Capital Factory, learning in real time with a community of peers and supported by an online dedicated instructor and at least one teaching assistant.
Students and alumni gain exclusive access to elective workshops, which offer introductions to topics complementing DigitalCrafts’ courses. Alumni gain access to the trainer’s Employer Network—a collection of companies, large and small, who seek to hire DigitalCrafts graduates. DigitalCrafts hopes to attract students looking to change careers, or to upskill at their current company. No prior training or college degree is required for DigitalCrafts’ programs.
The average bootcamp alumnus sees a 56% increase in salary with their first job after graduation, according to the latest annual survey of grads published by Course Report, an industry leader in the technology training space. Web development, UX and cybersecurity skills are in demand and predicted to grow much faster than other careers in the U.S.
