Why Us?

Bloc is the world’s first online coding bootcamp. With mentor-led online courses in web development, mobile development, and web design, Bloc relies on the time-tested model of the apprenticeship. Bloc courses are taught by experienced mentors who guide students through our project-oriented curriculum. Mentors help students build a portfolio of work with real developer and designer tools. Bloc delivers real outcomes: our students find jobs as professional developers and designers, start freelance careers, and build MVPs for their entrepreneurial passions.

We're a small team of intellectually curious developers and designers who are passionate about learning. We encourage our employees to develop new skill-sets, and to foster that you'll be able to apprentice under any of the mentors on our platform. We’ll also provide you with a generous benefits package, unlimited vacation policy, and we'll hook you up with the gear of your choice.

In November 2014, Bloc closed a $6M Series A investment led by Shasta Ventures, and enjoys support from acclaimed seed investors Harrison Metal, Baseline Ventures, and First Round Capital.
