Thanks to our TechHire pioneer employers:

Maine has been designated a TechHire Community because these ten key Maine employers embraced the idea from the very start that valuable tech employees don’t necessarily come through the traditional route of a computer science degree in college. They pledged to recruit and hire candidates based on their demonstrated technology skills regardless of where they gained them.
