Our instructional team has been crafting technical curriculum since 2013, partnering with top tech companies, reviewing countless job postings and seeking continuous feedback in order to craft a curriculum that is not just meeting employer expectations but exceeding them. Through continuous iteration, we build, refine, and adapt our curriculum to ensure we are keeping up with the demands of the industry and preparing our graduates for the rigorous expectations of a career in tech today and well into the future. We aren’t just looking to help individuals find their first job, we are working to ensure our graduates leave with the skills they need to excel in their new careers.
In this recent study conducted by Switchup, Code Fellows was the number one ranked bootcamp for landing a job at a major tech company. In fact, we have an impressive 11.15% of our graduates working for one of the Big Five – Amazon, Facebook, Google, Apple, and Microsoft – more than double that of any other bootcamp, as well as top universities such as Harvard and Northeastern University. These results don’t come easy. It requires passionate believers who relentlessly strive for excellence. In fact, the only school to match our success rate at Code Fellows was Stanford University, which is well-known for its prestigious computer science department and for being a top university for tech recruiting.
We believe it’s critical that students learn the skills that allow them to pursue their passion. Just as important, is our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to succeed. In reality, many qualified candidates aren’t pursuing careers in a technology-related field because they are discouraged somewhere along the way. That’s why Code Fellows invests in individuals who come from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds to find rewarding careers in tech. The future of tech needs to be shaped by the diversity in our world–all different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, socio-economic statuses–so that we all benefit and make tech a more inclusive, diverse and equitable place. A place where everyone is treated with equal value and worth.
It is because of this strong belief that we teach and embrace a growth mindset where we learn from our differences rather than avoid them. We work tirelessly to create a learning environment where every student feels welcome, safe and heard. We want to ensure that we’re not just educating men and women to become amazing tech leaders, but also better humans.
We believe that now is a perfect time for individuals to find ways to reinvent themselves, explore new learning opportunities, develop new norms, pursue careers they are passionate about and discover ways to thrive.
