Want To Work In Tech But Can’t Code? Check Out These Jobs On POCIT

Over half (54%) of the jobs at tech companies are non-technical roles – which is great news for those of us who thought C# was a musical note. Here’s a roundup of some of the many ‘non-technical’ roles at tech companies you can apply for on POCIT!

“I genuinely thought it was only the coders that would be able to make the most money and the biggest change in the tech world and I was wrong.”

Nakita Austin, Customer Success Director


A tech company may make a life-changing product, but that only matters if they can get it to their customers. As a result, many tech companies have strong marketing teams promoting their product and building brand awareness. Whether they are analyzing consumer trends or developing and executing marketing campaigns, marketing professionals are creative, proactive, and great communicators.

Sales and Accounts

If you’re more intrigued by the prospect of a customer- or client-facing role, consider sales or account management. The sales team generates leads, closes deals, and lands clients. In contrast, the account management team nurtures relationships with those clients, acting as their point of contact at the company and working with other teams to meet the client’s needs.

Project Management

Project managers are tasked with coordinating, managing, and overseeing projects. They are the people who ensure projects are completed on time, within budget, and to the required standards. So project managers are the people who set project timelines and schedules, manage budgets, and ensure the appropriate resources are used to execute each step of the project. 

  • Western Union – Project Management Leader (Senior), $140-$230K – Denver, CO
  • Zulily – Project Manager II, Creative Tools (Senior) – Remote or Hybrid
  • Cisco – Program/ Project Manager (Senior) – RTP, Durham, NC

Product Management

Not to be confused with project managers, product managers identify the what and why of a company’s product. Product managers define the product roadmap and vision, working closely with engineering, design, marketing, and sales teams to deliver products on time and within budget.

While some product manager roles require a technical background, many companies simply want a creative and intuitive problem solver who will work to fulfil the customers’ needs and business objectives.
