Edison, New Jersey—April 21, 2016—Harborside, Mack-Cali’s signature Jersey City Waterfront mixed-use complex, is pleased to announce a new tech tenant and partner—Rutgers Coding Bootcamp. The first of its kind in New Jersey, Rutgers Coding Bootcamp will occupy 5,000 square feet and is specifically designed to teach adult learners and part-time students the skills they need for careers in Web development, one of the highest-demand areas in the digital economy. Rutgers Coding Bootcamp Web development students will enjoy classes at one of the most technologically advanced facilities in New Jersey while gaining exposure to Harborside and Jersey City tenants interested in joining the school’s active hiring network.

“We are excited to welcome Rutgers Coding Bootcamp to Harborside and thrilled about their future collaboration with our other tenants,” said Christopher DeLorenzo, Mack-Cali executive vice president of leasing. “Technology, media, arts, and information companies are drawn to Harborside for a host of reasons, from wide floor plates and superior transit access to unparalleled views and more. The arrival of the Rutgers Coding Bootcamp is another amenity that cements Harborside as the place to be for TAMI firms.”

Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, a premier owner of waterfront and transit-based office and luxury multi-family properties, provides tenants and residents with the most innovative communities that empower them to re-imagine the way they work and live. The property’s design and state-of-the-art features draw tenants looking to provide their employees with collaborative and efficient work spaces along with great access to transit options, making it one of the most desirable office complexes in the region.

“We specifically chose Harborside for Rutgers Coding Bootcamp due to its extensive onsite network of companies offering employment opportunities for technical talent,” said Jim Morris, associate vice president of continuing studies, Rutgers University. “We have built a program to help working professionals retool and recharge their career prospects while serving a stark need among employers for coding skills. At Harborside, we will literally be bringing in employers to partner with our students and work side-by-side.”

Harborside tenants will have the opportunity to engage with Rutgers Coding Bootcamp students at a time when it’s challenging to find top technical talent in the New Jersey market. They will be invited to participate in onsite employer events (such as demo days, mock interview sessions, and speaking engagements) and to extend internships to top students in the program. They will also have a chance to involve students in specific projects within their companies while evaluating these students for eventual hire.

“Having a world-class training facility as a neighbor in Harborside helps us easily find the technology talent we need to grow our company,” said Nitesh Mittal, chief financial officer of Ishi, a leading cloud-computing and technology solutions company. “This is a tremendous advantage to Ishi and all other companies at Harborside who are looking for the highly skilled software engineers needed to succeed in today’s knowledge economy.”
