IntelePeer Partners with BASE to Train Military Spouses in Tech Careers


Being a military spouse is a notoriously difficult prospect. It often means frequent moves to other parts of the country and the world, and the areas around many military bases offer few opportunities for long-term careers. With technology innovations that allow for more remote work possibilities, however, there are new opportunities for military spouses.

BASE Technology Partners, a program launched by Wireless Technology Solutions, equips consultants with training, employment, client placement and mentorship. In particular, the solution addresses the challenges of underemployment and career longevity among military spouses, giving them the training and tools they need to work in the tech industry.

Communications technology company IntelePeer recently announced a collaboration with BASE Technology to help further create “portable careers” for military spouses. Today more than 300 spouses have taken the program’s aptitude test, with fourteen spouses securing new technology career opportunities. IntelePeer, an original BASE Technology partner, is leveraging its communications automation platform to provide training to program participants in valuable low- and no-code technology skills.

“We see firsthand the negative effects multiple moves can have on the career of military spouses and decided to assist this underutilized and undervalued part of the population,” said Anthony Jett, Chief Executive Officer at WTS. “We are grateful for our program participants, particularly IntelePeer – its contributions have helped us capitalize on opportunities in the tech space, which is the perfect sector to build remote and portable careers.”

BASE Technology uses a specialized recruiting and screening process to identify potential candidates. Spouses first take an aptitude test. Then, under the supervision of a participating company, they learn low-code application development skills over the course of four to six weeks. In the case of IntelePeer, participants are trained on its low- and no-code Marketplace solutions. The idea is to turn spouses into citizen developers who don’t need a coding degree and can work from anywhere.
