The Juno Team

Looking for talented front-end web developers? Meet some of our Web Development Immersive Bootcamp graduates of Cohort 26 who are looking to shine with your team!

Cohort 26's Bootcamp journey is quite a unique one - partway through their program, Juno's downtown Toronto campus halted In-Person operations like many others due to COVID-19 safety measures. When Bootcamp resumed in a Live Online format, Cohort 26 dove back in headfirst, and faced the new reality of a pandemic and post-pandemic world. After graduation, Cohort 26 had grown as developers, as individuals, and as a caring community during a very uncertain time. With all that the world was throwing their way, it wasn't always easy - but their dedication and enthusiasm persisted. We couldn't be more proud of their accomplishments, and we can't wait to see what they'll do next!

Trained in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, and more, our Bootcamp grads are ready and eager to help your team find success. When you hire a Juno Bootcamp grad, you’ll get a positive, hard-working developer with a technical skill set fit for today’s workplace, and a motivation to continue their learning as part of your team.

What sets our grads apart from the rest?

Growth Mindset

Our graduates have made major investments in growing their technical skill sets and building functional applications. They are constantly learning new technologies and have the skills to level up quickly as your company does the same.

Work Experience

Many of our grads have professional experience in areas such as design, sales, project management, and more. They bring unique, transferable knowledge to their development career that is valuable to employers.

Diversity

Diverse teams perform better. Many of our Bootcamp grads are from groups underrepresented in tech. We partner with organizations that help underrepresented groups access education and enter the workforce. Ramp up your organization’s diversity and give your team an edge.

Remote Work Ready

The world of work has changed. Now more than ever, we need to know how to work and collaborate effectively online. Our Live Online Bootcamp prepares students for this new reality. After 9 weeks of intensive learning from home, Juno grads are well equipped to work in a professional remote environment.
