Fort Worth, TX – May 25, 2018 – Tech Qualled, a U.S. military veteran training organization, today announced a relationship with nCino, the worldwide leader in cloud banking, to help veterans secure jobs at the financial technology company.
Tech Qualled was started in 2015 to teach veterans the skills they need to assimilate back into the workforce in an industry that can have a high barrier of entry due to lack of experience or training. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, at least 50 percent of jobs in the U.S. require technology skills. These skills are vital to the approximately 200,000 service members expected to transition from active-duty service each year. Tech Qualled partners with technology companies, such as nCino, who are interested in building a diverse and blended talent pool comprised of early-in-career former service members with exceptional leadership experience and work ethic.
“nCino is an exciting company that is well positioned for significant growth. Its leadership team understands the benefits of hiring former service members and they have a proven track record of setting them up for success,” said Nick Breedlove, co-founder and CEO of Tech Qualled. According to Breedlove, nCino is one of Tech Qualled’s most committed and enthusiastic partners. “Veterans see the opportunity that awaits them in the technology industry, and we see nCino as truly embodying everything that is exciting about this field.”
“At nCino, we are committed to hiring people who embody our culture and core values, and who bring a unique set of knowledge, skills and experience to the table,” said Josh Glover, nCino’s executive vice president – Americas, and a former Marine and decorated combat veteran. “We are extremely proud to work with Tech Qualled to ensure we continue to hire the right people, and honored to expand opportunities and access for those who give so much to our country.”
Tech Qualled’s curriculum is specifically focused on teaching veterans industry-relevant concepts such as data center solutions, basic networking, cloud computing, software applications, and hands-on sales training, effectively equipping them with marketable skills for employment. To date, Tech Qualled has successfully coached more than 120 veterans and helped launch them into careers in the technology industry.
The Tech Qualled program boasts an 80 percent success rate of graduates meeting expectations in their first full year after being hired. “The success rate of our candidates is largely attributed to our overall selection process and training curriculum. We have selective and specific criteria for making sure we pick candidates with the right blend of soft skills and personality traits,” said Justin Ossola, co-founder and president of Tech Qualled.
