About Bloc

Bloc is an intensive online bootcamp for aspiring developers and designers. Bloc relies on the time-tested apprenticeship model, combining experienced mentors and industry-vetted curriculum to offer students around the world a more accessible and effective alternative to an offline bootcamp. Bloc was founded in 2011, and has raised $8.5M in cumulative venture investment from Shasta Ventures, Harrison Metal, Baseline Ventures, First Round Capital, and Learn Capital.


In April 2012, we began tutoring neophyte web developers over video chat. At the time we worked from our house-office in Palo Alto. We learned a lot, and since then we have focused on building a learning platform that enables high quality learning at scale. In late 2012 we raised a seed round of investment and relocated to the Financial District of San Francisco.

Now we're helping thousands of students around the world launch new careers in development and design. Our structured, mentor-led programs are highly effective and delivered entirely online, so aspiring developers and designers can study on a schedule that fits their life constraints.


We're a product-driven team committed to providing outstanding experiences to our students and mentors. If you or someone you know wants to make a positive impact on education, tell us why you're interested and an example of work. We are actively recruiting full-stack software engineers with excellent product taste.
