TechUP has one goal: to create a tech ecosystem that is representative of all people. We believe that a diverse and inclusive tech sector is stronger, smarter, and better. We leverage our networks across all underrepresented groups to bring diverse talent into the tech ecosystem, and connect candidates to opportunities to build impactful careers.
TechUP events intentionally engage women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, veterans, and people who live with a disability. We recruit front-end, back-end, full-stack, and mobile developers, engineering managers, UI/UX designers, hardware/embedded, data analysts and scientists, data security, IT, dev ops, QA engineers, project and product managers, marketers, technical support and sales, and more.
