The Collab Lab increases access to web development jobs for early-career developers and, in particular, people in under-represented groups in tech by providing experiential skills training in software team collaboration and career management.
The Collab Lab is…
- Collaborative group project practice
- A place to work alongside your peers in a fully remote setting
- An opportunity to learn from experienced developers
- Volunteer run and free for developers
Collab Lab gave me agile team experience I didn’t get through my coding bootcamp. I honestly don’t think I would have landed that first job offer without being able to talk about my experience with pair programming and resolving merge conflicts. Beyond that, I made some great friends!~ Caitlyn Greffly, Software Engineer at The Motley Fool

Joining us as a volunteer is a way to give back and help early-career developers gain their footholds in tech.
