Ever since I graduated from college, I’ve been fortunate to excel in different high paced, customer focused roles like retail management, insurance sales, and auto claims. I’ve always had an interest in and aptitude for technology and have often been the go-to “IT-person”. Outside of work, I’m very passionate about the scouting program as an Eagle Scout. I’m also a die-hard fan of soccer. I’m looking forward to finding a company that I can have the same kind of passion in my new chosen career.Read More

Hello, my name is Jon Beckner and for the last few years, I have worked in the restaurant industry as I completed undergraduate and graduate studies. As I worked my way up to a management position I learned valuable skills such as adaptability, planning, organization, teamwork and communication that I feel will enable me to succeed in this field. My educational background includes a bachelor’s in criminal justice and sociology, as well as progress towards a master’s in criminology with a focus in cybercrime.Read More

It’s time for veterans to go back to bootcamp.
But we’re not talking about military bootcamp. We’re talking about coding bootcamps that can help veterans gain the skills they need to start satisfying, high-earning careers in the tech industry.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 63% of unemployed veterans fall in the 18-54 age group – prime working years when a stable, satisfying job can make a huge difference towards enjoying a better quality of life. This shows that transitioning from military service to the civilian lifestyle can be difficult.
Civilian lifestyle is much different than what veterans tend to be accustomed to, and although job opportunities are out there, not all veterans find themselves properly equipped. However, technology presents veterans an opportunity to build a career in a rapidly-booming industry by learning to code.
Since childhood, I’ve had a penchant for technology, which resulted in taking every computer class in high school from keyboarding and multimedia design to introductory programming and web design. I joined the US Navy after high school as an IT where I did two deployments to the Middle East, administrating the ships’ networks. I also worked as an IT Assistant for the US Citizenship and Immigration Services. At this point, I’m pretty sure I dream of electric sheep!
As early as 11 years old, I had been building my own computers and diving into the evolving internet as a hobby. I studied Psychology and Mathematics at the University of Kansas and initially started work as a Technical Support Specialist and had moved on to Software Testing but couldn’t stomach the notion of cubical life at such a young age. I have worked as an Arborist until I had broken my leg in a skateboarding injury in March of 2017. During recovery I picked up Mountain Biking as a low impact form of rehabilitation and have traveled across the US from KC to Oregon exploring trails along the way and back.
