The Difference Engine is a non-profit that bridges the gap between education and the real-world workplace. TDE’s apprenticeship program empowers adults from underrepresented groups and non-traditional backgrounds with real-world technology experiences that develop their skills in professionalism, Agile workflows, and collaboration ...unlike school or Bootcamp programs, upon TDE program completion, our apprentices are ready to enter the workforce with applicable professional experience.

We are looking for a volunteer grant writer to assist our team in sourcing and applying for grants. The ideal candidate has a history of grant fulfillment success and is looking to be part of the movement to get more non-traditional developers into the workplace. If you believe that you can help us to Engineer a Difference please reach out.
