grandcircus

Grand Circus, we vet and train Detroiters in the skills businesses need to grow, and then we introduce them to companies needing talent. Our bootcamps are intensive learning experiences that emphasize workplace needs like teamwork, paired programming, and cutting-edge technical skills.

 

 

 

We’re passionate about training people for amazing careers and helping local businesses grow by hiring local tech superstars. Our bootcamps serve both purposes: we give people critical skills for tech jobs while introducing them to businesses looking for talent. More than that, we’re here for the broader Detroit community through co-workingclasses and events.

 

 

Finding amazing IT talent is hard. At Grand Circus, we vet and train Detroiters in the skills businesses need to grow, and then we introduce them to companies needing talent.
