Supporting military spouses & families with flexible employment opportunities

Kickstart your career in tech

As a veteran-founded social impact company, WithYouWithMe is a proud employer of military families.

Supportive families are the backbone for our military service men and women – however their personal career opportunities are often sacrificed as the cost of frequently shifting locations. This typically makes finding meaningful employment very difficult.

Through our military family program, we support individuals to break into the tech workforce by providing free role matching, tech training and job placement.

Tech jobs are typically flexible, meaning military families can remain in roles as they travel and forge long-term careers.

Whether you are new to technology or a seasoned tech professional, our aim is to give you the opportunity to secure a meaningful career path, regardless of your prior experience or family circumstance.

How it works

The first step is to take our online self-paced assessments, which will generate a comprehensive report covering your unique skills, aptitude, preferred learning style and ideal cultural fit.

From there, we’ll recommend some high-demand career pathways you would naturally excel at – and give you access to our free, industry accredited training.

You can speak to a member of our team or one of our military family leaders at any time for personal support and guidance.

Finally, once you have completed your training, we have a global network of like-minded partners who are looking to employ talent just like you into their teams – and we’ll guide you through this process.

If you are ready to see what tech roles await you, sign up to our Military Family Program.

Carly Owens

Meet Carly Owens

Due to her Partner's military deployments, Carly and her family have relocated eight times in 12 years. Finding work was challenging. Carly had a decent work-life balance when she worked casually as a retail merchandiser, but she wanted more than just a job. Carly wanted flexible, intellectually stimulating work. After completing WithYouWithMe's AWS Cloud Practitioner course, Carly was offered a short work assignment by Accenture. BAE hired her next.

Carly trained in Cyber Security and helpdesk analytics through WithYouWithMe before joining BAE in 2022. As an Information Security Specialist, she supervises a BAE "technology Squad." Carly's role as BAE Team Leader has helped her grow as a leader and mentor her squad.  Carly loves working for BAE. "I'm motivated to surpass objectives and enjoy learning current information security skills and technology upgrades."  Carly can be more present with her kids and take her job with her if she relocates.
