Tech Elevator, a company that offers in-person and online computer technology courses, will be opening a downtown Jersey City “campus” in January 2023 where students taking its coding bootcamps can work on group assignments and meet with the company’s career counselors. 

No instructors will be at the location,  which offers open and enclosed meeting rooms, whiteboards, even a spot for students to “simply to enjoy a game night with fellow classmates.” Teachers will be available throughout the day in real time via video or messaging apps, however, according to a company spokesperson.

“With a growing alumni network in Jersey City and New York City, opening a campus locally was an easy decision,” said Anthony Hughes, co-founder and CEO. “We look forward to investing in the success we’ve already seen and elevating the untapped talent in the surrounding communities.”

To offer job search support, Tech Elevator recently hired Catherine Tsavalas who will oversee campus operation and admissions, help students one-on-one with job hunting, and invite local employers who are seeking junior-level tech talent to attend career events at the school. The company is also advertising for a director for its “Pathway Program,” who will fill a similar role.

Said Tsavalas, “We couldn’t be more excited to launch a campus here in my own backyard of Jersey City. I’m looking forward to working with our local communities, students, and companies to elevate the tech scene in the NYC Metro area.”

Tech Elevator was founded in 2015 and has seven other campuses located in Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Wilmington. To apply for its January 2023 coding bootcamp and learn more about the school, visit
