Remote job description
We are Multiverse, a tech start-up with a social mission. We're creating a diverse group of future leaders by building an outstanding alternative to college and corporate training.
In June 2022, we announced our $220m Series D raise, making Multiverse a mission-driven unicorn. This funding will help us to accelerate our growth in the US, where we're committed to tackling the toughest challenges facing those who seek jobs - and those who provide them.
In our first year in the US, we launched over 20 apprentice cohorts at some of the best companies in America, including the likes of American Express, Citizens Bank, and Visa. Globally, we work with over 500 clients and we've been recognized as one of the fastest-growing businesses in Europe.

- After the bootcamp, provide 1:1 coaching, project support, and innovative hands-on practical workshops for the remaining months while apprentices are on the job.
