Technology training company matches career seekers with market opportunities

Karen Chassin



Of all the resolutions that could lead to a happier and more prosperous new year, shifting gears into a technology career could be a smart move. Could 2022 be your year for a better-paying job? If that sounds intriguing, a new company in Tampa Bay can support you every step of the way.

CodeBoxx is an international firm that relocated its headquarters to St. Petersburg in 2021. They are creators of an award-winning intensive training course that prepares people for well-paying tech jobs in just 16 weeks. The program is a fast, efficient way to gain skills across the spectrum of industry needs, including the most in-demand languages and skills ranging from coding to web development, and AI to gaming and entertainment.

Tampa Bay investors backed the company to help address the insatiable need of the marketplace for technology talent. “Our investors understand the benefit to the region of having access to CodeBoxx-trained technologists who will deliver on day one and be able to grow with the sector,” said Nicolas Genest, company co-founder.

CodeBoxx graduates in Montreal and Quebec City, Canada, where the company was founded, enjoy a placement rate of 94% upon graduation. CodeBoxx also has a successful consulting division which employs many of its graduates working for such industry standouts as eBay and Lucky Brands.

CodeBoxx graduates enjoy deferred tuition until they are fully employed. They are prepared to exit the program and hit the ground running as contributing members of tech teams at respected corporations and startups alike. The program balances cutting edge technical skills with business acumen and “soft” skills like teamwork, project management and collaboration.

The course has no prerequisites and is taught by coaches with deep industry knowledge and practical experience – no lectures! It does require a full-time commitment for 16 week, however. A laptop loan program is offered for those needing a technology upgrade to take part.

CodeBoxx’s first Tampa Bay class launches Jan. 24. The course is being offered in person – at Thrive DTSP – or virtually and in a hybrid in-person/virtual format. For more information and to register visit https://codeboxx.biz/en/codeboxx-st-pete or contact Tim Kennedy at tim.kennedy@codeboxx.biz.
