ServiceMaster partnered with Tech901 in the past year to develop the nonprofit’s Code 1.0 course. They wanted to offer a course that would benefit local companies. During the planning stage, conversations were held with local IT professionals to gauge their needs.
After the graduation of the first Code 1.0 cohort, ServiceMaster hired four students as interns. Kelly Miller was later hired full-time. She now works as a front-end developer with the American Home Shield E-Commerce team.
Miller holds an undergraduate degree in Engineering Science from Vanderbilt University. After an internship as a product engineer, she switched gears and became a teacher.
