Diverse Talent Program

Bitwise Industries' Diverse Talent Program (DTP) partners with technology organizations to engate diverse, cost-efficient tech talent using our unique and proven apprenticeship model.

How It Works

  • DTP works with partners to understand their company's diversity, technical and cultural goals then assembles a group of 8-12 developers from our network into a "Cohort" led by a senior level developer.

  • Each Cohort is deployed to execute on projects identified by the partner, under the guidance of DTP's senior developer and in constant collaboration with the partner.

  • Throughout the six month Cohort program, partners have the opportunity to formally and informally evaluate Cohort members as prospective hires.

  • At, or before, the conclusion of each Cohort, partners have the opportunity to hire members of their Cohort.
