Here’s what On-Ramp participants have to say about their experience in the program.

On-Ramp has allowed me to not only develop knowledge required to perform within my team, but also holistic knowledge that allows me to understand the greater day-to-day operations of the business with respect to all the teams in the company. I feel as if I’ve become a better engineer, and team member through On-Ramp.

Hamza S., Associate Software Engineer

As someone with a non-traditional software engineering background, the On-Ramp program has catered to developing my skills not only associated with my role but also allowed me to experience other sectors that I was unfamiliar with. The attention to detail and support from the presenters, recruiters, and members of my team have made this experience an elevating one.

Nonye E., Associate iOS Engineer

I joined CarGurus because throughout my interview process, everyone was so excited to set up calls and meet me, and it’s equally as true, if not more so, now that I’ve been hired. All the people I’ve met here are beyond friendly and love being here as much as I do so far. And having lunch on the patio beside the Charles can’t be beat!
