LaunchCode Philadelphia: Market Director
LaunchCode is a non-profit solving the tech talent gap and paving new pathways to economic opportunity through apprenticeships and job placement in technology.

We’re looking for a self-motivated Market Director to help us expand tech greatness in the Philadelphia area.
The Market Director will lead LaunchCode’s efforts in the region, having overall management and leadership of the efforts. The director will identify spectacular tech job opportunities for our candidates: hunting new leads, pitching LaunchCode’s success and mission to people who have never heard of us, maintaining fruitful relationships with partner organizations, and matching employers with the candidates of their dreams. The job is fast-paced and multi-faceted. It’s also super fun — a pretty sweet deal if you ask us.

What it’s like to work at LaunchCode
Are you a person who’s always listening for connections? Got an earnest drive to open doors to opportunity for others and make an impact on their lives? If so, then you’ve come to the right place.
You’re part of changing the tech landscape and changing lives – Traditionally, tech education hasn’t been widely accessible to many demographics and populations. Of LaunchCode students enrolled in courses in 2020, 50% identify as people of color and 56% identify as women. 69% come from low-to-moderate income households. After being placed in a permanent position, the average LaunchCoder more than doubles their previous salary.
You’ll be part of a company that values diversity, equity, and inclusion among our staff, students, and board – In 2019, the St Louis Women’s Foundation named LaunchCode as an honoree in its employment scorecard initiative for demonstrating a strong commitment to women in the workplace. Forbes also named us one of 2020’s best startup employers in the U.S. But beyond the external recognition, we believe deeply in Black Lives Matter, celebrating Pride all year round, and uplifting women in tech.
You’ll be immersed in a culture based on shared values – We love to laugh and compete for the best GIF game on Slack. We also share these values: collaboration, trust, appreciation, and being kind.
