Meet Gregorio Rojas and Liliana Monge
As a software developer, Gregario kept coming across candidates who were strong in theory and could talk code but a vast majority of them had to be retrained to perform applicable coding tasks outlined in their job descriptions.
While working in the tech space, Gregario as a developer and Liliana for a real estate online platform, they both noticed that coding was not accessible to everyone and they wanted to tear down as many barriers as possible to increase accessibility.
In 2013, they founded Sabio while both running full-time day jobs. They were so passionate about their mission that the 4 students they started with didn’t pay them until they all got jobs post-graduation.
To continue the mission of developing competent software engineers who won’t require retraining when they join the workforce, Sabio coding bootcamp employs top tech developers who bring a wealth of experience to the class.
We have created a tight-knit community that goes beyond a coding program. Our bootcamp is a family of people who care, and we’re committed to helping you over and above learning how to code. Our greatest accomplishment is helping you have a successful career and life.
CEO & Co-Founder
Liliana is a social entrepreneur that believes in the power of the <script> tag. Liliana’s calling as a social entrepreneur began in university when she, alongside Gregorio, both felt compelled towards empowering the community and did so by helping students increase their skill set through student groups.
She has played a major role in ensuring Sabio has all the necessary documentation and has adhered to all the laws applicable to coding bootcampsThroughout her career, she has been driven to help people become exceptional technical professionals, and is the heart and soul behind Sabio.
CTO & Co-Founder
Gregorio has been in the software development field across a variety of industries since 1999 and being the lead developer at the monetization team at MySpace features as part of his portfolio.
He began his professional career as an athletic trainer which is what he had trained to be at university but transitioned to a career in software development. His working experience as a developer revealed that there was a tremendous opportunity for anyone willing to cross over to the tech space and they didn’t have to get a computer science degree like he did or take the same amount of time he had to incrementally increase his income. The real software engineering superstars Gregorio was working and interacting with had all been mentored at early levels in their careers by senior level software engineers.
This was the environment that he wanted to foster at Sabio, where over 12 weeks and with his background and mentoring, students could successfully begin their software engineering careers.
