Treehouse is an online technology school that offers beginner to advanced courses in web design, web development, mobile development and game development taught by a team of expert teachers. Its courses are aimed at beginners looking to learn coding skills and embark on a career in the tech industry.
In May 2016, Treehouse launched the Techdegree program, a comprehensive learning program focused on helping people learn the skills they need to start a tech career. Through earning a Techdegree certification, a student will challenge themselves, deepen their skills, and prove their knowledge to potential employers. All in 6-12 months, on their own schedule.
Treehouse believes that understanding, communicating with and controlling technology is a fundamental skill that everyone should have the opportunity to learn. Through learning with Treehouse, each student is given the opportunity to learn the valuable skills they need — whether they have existing, little or no previous experience — to confidently take control of their future.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion don’t just make Treehouse a great place to work, it’s at the center of our work. Treehouse was founded in 2011 with the purpose of making tech more accessible through affordable and engaging online tech education. In 2016, we signed the TechTown PDX diversity pledge and decided to change the way we look at diversity, equity, and inclusion. Many qualified people have been boxed out of tech due to historical inequality in the United States. When we signed the diversity pledge, we realized that as a company that is filling the tech pipeline, we have a moral obligation to make EDI our priority, or else we’re contributing to the problem.
Now, we’ve taught over 260,000 people how to code and design, and our goal is to create lasting, systemic change in tech. In 2016 we launched the Treehouse Apprenticeship Program to help companies build diverse, local talent pipelines into their software engineering teams. We’ve partnered with the Boys & Girls Club, Salvation Army, and AnitaB.org to place over 100 apprentices at tech companies across the nation. In the Spring of 2020 we decided to open source how we worked to reduce barriers in employment through apprenticeship to invite other companies and organizations to join us on this journey.
We believe that achieving equity, diversity, and inclusion requires doing constant work to learn, grow, and change. We have a long way to go, but we are dedicated to building a more equitable, diverse, & inclusive environment at Treehouse and in the larger tech industry.
Here’s some of the work we’re actively doing internally to make Treehouse an inclusive and equitable place to work:
We know there’s still work to be done which is why even though we’ve made incredible strides, we’re aware we need to regularly work towards our equity, diversity, and inclusion goals through the OKRs we set yearly and the guidance from our EDI committee.
