SANTA CLARA, Calif. — November 10, 2020 – Couchbase, the creator of the enterprise-class multicloud to edge NoSQL database, today announced it has partnered with VetsinTech to enable veterans to accelerate their careers in the high-tech industry. Couchbase has joined the VetsinTech employer coalition, offering free training, mentorship, and professional development opportunities to veterans and active duty military transitioning from military to civilian life.
With nearly six million work-eligible veterans in the U.S., underemployment remains one of the greatest issues faced by veterans and military spouses. According to LinkedIn’s 2019 Veteran Opportunity Report, veterans are 15.6% more likely to be underemployed than nonveterans. Underemployment includes those who aren’t fully utilizing skills and abilities, may be working part time while pursuing learning goals, or take temporary or part time work while searching for a better career fit.
VetsinTech is a leading national non-profit dedicated to supporting veterans through tech-based education, employment, and entrepreneurship programs. The organization connects global technology companies with its more than 30,000 members through training and career development programs.
Couchbase’s participation in VetsinTech aligns with the company’s goal to connect veterans and military spouses with tech careers in which they can apply their exceptional training, skills, and experience. With veteran representation within its Executive Team and across key roles in its Engineering, People, and Sales teams, Couchbase continues to recruit transitioning active duty military and veterans to join its increasingly diverse team.
“Expanding community support with leading companies such as Couchbase is the fuel that propels VetsinTech to help even more veterans embark on a meaningful career in the tech arena. We’re grateful to Couchbase for their recognition and support of our mission. This partnership with Couchbase exemplifies the power of tech organizations joining forces in a shared common vision of supporting our veterans through tech-based education, entrepreneurship and job opportunities.”
–Katherine Webster, Founder and CEO of VetsinTech

We are proud to count a growing number of veterans among our employees and honored to partner with VetsinTech to offer resources necessary to advance veteran careers in tech.”
