Our Story.
Technology reaches for talent.

The forces that drive change never stop. Neither does innovation and business. The next wave in business has arrived. We’re in it. From crypto and Web3, to metaverse apps, coding, and UX design, the next big thing is nothing short of an entirely new economy. And the leading companies in this new economy are looking for ways to scale their visions, before they’re left behind. They know accessing talent has turned critical. Companies are looking beyond job boards to build and modernize the teams they require. They’re reaching outside of traditional recruiting to find the modern technical workforces they need to stay in the lead. 

Goodland Tech believes the best way to build something great is by doing something good. Partnering with local colleges and universities–the good places, where community exists–to enable highly talented people to succeed in the towns and cities in which they live. From these places, Goodland Tech offers a practical education combined with real-world apprenticeships in high-demand technologies. Participants get hands-on training, mentoring, and the opportunity to earn while they learn as part of an integrated workforce. Afterwards, they access high-paying, career-oriented jobs, remaining part of the integrated team of people they have learned from and respect.
