I first came across The Commons when I hired someone from their Core Bizops program. I was highly impressed with the tech business context and analytical skills that this person had been able to pick up, coming from a non-tech role in traditional Banking. Since then I have used The Commons as a major hiring channel and have continued to hire from their pool of talented and ready-to-ramp candidates!

Hey all, want to give a shout-out to @Amanur Rahman who just joined my team at KOHO as a Sr Business Operations Manager! Amanur joined The Commons over a year ago in the Jan 2021 cohort, and received great feedback from his mentor @James Lee about his ability to define and break down complex problems, lay out workstreams and motivate his team.

[The] quality of the funnel in general was super high, helping us reduce time invested into screening…Your pre-screening was also helpful in bubbling up the best candidates for Uber.

The chance to walk more in depth through the team and role [during the Product Ops x Uber event] allowed The Commons folks [to] self-select if the role made sense for them and their background. [We] would be happy to contribute to future events / programs to keep Uber top of mind for your network of folks

The Commons is an excellent opportunity even for those already working in tech roles. I encouraged my team to participate (company sponsored!) to refine their skills, meet more people and try their hands on a relevant problem from a different industry. It's been fantastic for onboarding but also for building confidence and giving team members a new perspective.

Mentor-led Sprints
Upskill your talent by sponsoring an employee to participate in a Sprint.

Here’s why employers love our Sprints:
  • Mentor-Led: Sprints are built and led by mentors who work at companies like yours
  • Project-Based Learning: The curriculum is hands-on and case-based so students can deliver impact faster
  • Efficient Upskilling: Mentors help students learn skills so that they can develop without compromising their manager’s time
  • Flexible: Sprints are part-time and online, outside of working hours
Throughout the Sprint, participants engage in:
  • Cohort-wide workshops for core skills building
  • Weekly team and mentor working sessions
  • Direct, tactical feedback on students’ project work and problem-solving approach
  • Mentor office hours for hands-on SQL coaching
  • Speaker series with industry experts on topics like launching in new markets, building effective presentations, regulatory operations, BizOps metrics & frameworks, etc.
