All your instructors are software development experts with deep industry experience. They personally monitor student progress and follow up proactively, including for one-on-one tutoring.

Throughout the bootcamp, we’ll work together preparing you for your career transformation – we’ll help get you familiar with the career path you are about to embark on - with panels discussion and presentations from leaders in talent and tech and sessions designed to support your professional transformation.
Your coding questions answered.
No, since the program is full-time, you will need to step away from your current role to focus on becoming a Software Developer for AutoZone.
The coding bootcamp (Java) requires 0 prior coding experience! We do, however, select candidates based on problem-solving ability using our Aptitude Test. Related to equipment, Tech Elevator will provide a laptop for you to use throughout the bootcamp.
This program is available for AutoZoners in Atlanta, Austin, Dallas and Memphis markets. Employees at the Terrell and Lexington distribution centers are also eligible to apply. Instruction will be given virtually, however, AutoZoners will learn alongside their peers at their nearest regional office location.
There will be an in-person portion in Memphis during the final week of the bootcamp (week 14)—during which students will present their Capstone Presentations and attend an in-person graduation ceremony.
Upon graduation, you will become a member of AutoZone’s IT team—either as a Software Developer, Analyst, etc.
