Holberton’s mission is to provide learners with the skills and technical knowledge needed for initial employment in entry-level positions, preparing students academically and professionally to meet the constantly changing employment requirements needed to have a successful career in software engineering.
The Holberton School first opened in San Francisco in 2016, opening up the Tulsa campus in partnership with the George Kaiser Family Foundation in 2020, driven by the goal of producing software engineers to keep up with Tulsa’s growing demand.
Soon after graduation, Holberton students were ready to enter Tulsa’s growing tech economy. inTulsa knew our talent matchmaking services could bridge the gap between employer opportunities and local demand, strengthening Holberton’s software engineering pipeline.
Growing Tulsa’s Tech Opportunities
Software engineers are a hot commodity in the US economy with jobs expected to grow 22% between 2020 - 2030. Firms throughout the US are all vying for software engineering talent, looking for remote and in person staff to fill vacancies. By identifying targeted remote opportunities or connecting with small, high-growth startups, the inTulsa team is able to attract and share these unique opportunities with Holberton’s staff and graduates, working with their career services department to suppliment and source additional job opportunities that align with each cohort’s graduation date.
inTulsa worked in tandem with Holberton graduates and staff to connect them with employers who were looking for entry-level software engineering talent. Our team of talent partners worked closely with graduates, submitting their resumes to companies and unique opportunities our team identified. We connected graduates with smaller organizations and remote employers who were less likely to source from the Tulsa’s market, providing them with array of tailored, non-traditional routes.
Holberton is making a big splash in Tulsa, since 2021 the organization has produced several dozen graduates with cohorts growing every quarter – from their first cohort of 22. Holberton graduates are qualified and provide the entry-level software talent needed to grow the tech economy.
