Position Description

About Byte Back

For over 25 years, Byte Back has been providing a pathway of inclusive and relevant tech training that leads to meaningful careers in the tech industry. As a leader in both digital inclusion and digital equity, we serve and train more than 1000 adults every year to help close the digital divide. Byte Back's Scholars are predominantly people of color, women, and unemployed or underemployed adults. 90% of Byte Back program participants do not have a college degree.

By the year 2025, nearly 85,000,000 jobs will be lost to automation, artificial intelligence, robotics, and machine learning. Most of those jobs are held by marginalized, underrepresented, and minority communities. Our mission is to close the digital divide by providing under-resourced communities an equitable pathway into the digital economy. We achieve this through transformative digital advocacy, digital literacy, and tech certification training. We exist to reskill these individuals to help them be marketable for 21st century jobs. On average, our graduates who are hired increase their annual earnings by more than $25,000. Byte Back believes everyone deserves an opportunity to reap the benefits that come from participating in the tech industry.

Byte Back's innovative approach and our leaders have been featured at SXSW, on TEDx, Good Morning Washington, "The Root 100," Washington Business Journal,, Voice of America, Washington Informer, NBC, and more. In 2022, we were named "Non-Profit of the Year" by DC Chamber of Commerce.
