Here at JumpCloud®, we are proud to hear of the successes of our customers. One customer in particular that has truly used JumpCloud to their advantage is The Last Mile (TLM). TLM is based out of California, where they teach inmates the ropes of software and web development, which is quickly growing in demand in the job market. By educating the incarcerated with these valuable skills, they help them to re-enter society after completing their sentence.

We had the opportunity to speak with TLM’s VP of Engineering, Zach Boewer, and see how he has used Directory-as-a-Service® to further TLM as an organization.
