Flatiron School is delighted to announce a partnership with New York City to transform lives through code. In conjunction with the NYC Talent Tech Pipeline, Flatiron School will teach 20 NYC residents in the Mobile Dev Corps program to become professional developers in just four short months.
This announcement holds a special place in our hearts, because it’s more than just getting people jobs — it’s about changing lives. Past partnerships with the city include programs such as the Web Development Fellowship, which launched to incredible success.
We’ve witnessed compelling stories of students who defied all odds and reached a place of economic mobility — something some of them never thought was possible. Past participants came from working jobs such as bartenders and receptionists, to landing full-time positions at companies like Intel, Kickstarter, and Buzzfeed.

In response to industry feedback reporting a dearth of mobile developers, Flatiron School will focus the Mobile Dev Corps on iOS development, using the same immersive curriculum that has lead to a 99% job placement rate and average starting salary of $74,000 a year.
Eligible applicants for Mobile Dev Corps must be residents of NYC, at least 18 years old, and earn less than $50,000 per year (see all the requirements here). Everyone should have a chance to better themselves and to be useful to the world around them. This is one more step in that direction, delivering outcomes-based education to those who could benefit the most.
