Luke Green, Web Development Certificate, Fall 2016

UI/UX Program Manager – Picobrew, Inc.


“For me, the Web Development Certificate program was a total game-changer. I had been exploring ways to change careers for about a year when I made the decision to enroll. Roughly 15 months later, I find myself in a brand-new role at Seattle-based start-up, PicoBrew, Inc., where I am serving as UI/UX Program Manager. The certificate program helped me become conversant in technologies that allow me to fulfill an important cross-functional role at a rapidly growing company. My instructors in the program also instilled me with the confidence to really put myself out there during my job search. “

Tyler Burkhardt, Web Development Certificate, Fall 2015

“I wanted to get into the Tech industry, and I felt like this was a really good place to get started. The most challenging part of the program was being able to challenge yourself and push yourself to limits that you didn’t know were possible of achieving.”
