Sergio M.
Software Engineer @ Vertafore

“Flatiron School not only opened the doorway to a life and career in tech, it lead me to Denver, where I’m working at Vertafore as a software engineer today.”

Remmy C.
UI Engineer @ Sawatch Labs

“Being able to know what the code is and explaining why it works are two very different things. I was able to talk about my code a lot at Flatiron, and that helped when I had technical interviews.”

Lucas M.
Software Engineer @ Ibotta

“Flatiron School put the most effort into proving their methods worked and that was such a vote of confidence for me.”

Experienced engineers. Passionate educators.

Since day one over five years ago, we’ve taken teaching seriously. Great teachers inspire us to connect to topics on a profound level. Experience as a developer alone doesn’t necessarily make one an effective teacher — that’s why we’re passionate about finding not only great engineers, but deeply committed, experienced teachers.

Eric Kim
Software Engineering Instructor

Coming from a background in education, Eric Kim found his love for programming and problem-solving while studying mathematics. He enjoys working with people and bringing out their best potential. When he’s not teaching, Eric enjoys a good brain-teaser, as well as a good hike.

What the application process looks like

Aptitude for software engineering stems from an innate curiosity about the world and how people interact with it. We don’t admit students, we craft a class: a lawyer, journalist, and pro athlete will approach solutions differently, creating a richer learning environment for everyone involved. All you need is passion and an open mind.

Step 1 → Apply

Submit your application. Share a bit about yourself and what’s driving you to start a career.

Step 2 → Admissions interview

Speak with an Admissions representative in a non-technical interview. This is an opportunity for us to get to know each other a little better. Nothing technical — just a friendly conversation.

What do we look for in a Flatiron School student?

Step 3 → Technical review

The technical review assesses your basic grip of coding and how it interacts with us in our daily lives. Demonstrate interest by completing steps on Learn.co, our learning platform.

What is a Technical Review?

Step 4 → Admissions decision

Receive your acceptance decision from Admissions. This usually happens within 4 business days.

Step 5 → Prework

If accepted, you'll begin course pre-work to prepare for the first day of class.

Frequently asked questions

What makes Flatiron School the right choice for a coding bootcamp?

To date, Flatiron School has helped over 1,000 students land jobs at top companies around the world and celebrates consistently strong job outcomes for its on-campus and online courses. Flatiron School alumni are already working at some of the area’s top companies, along with many currently-enrolled online students who will provide our Austin students with a base of support and guidance as they start their journey into tech careers.

Where is Flatiron School Austin's campus located?

We’re located at WeWork’s SXSW Center on the 7th floor.

Why should I attend a coding bootcamp in Austin over a traditional computer science education

With software development roles already leading the labor demand in major cities like Austin, and select university’s computer science degree programs at capacity, Texas finds itself in a rare position to retain its economic strength while maintaining a workforce ready talent pipeline for employers.

High-quality, outcomes-focused “bootcamps” are a strong solution to the problem in question and bridge the growing gap between higher education and workforce readiness. For these reasons, the Flatiron School and We Company have heavily invested in Texas, establishing coding, data science and UX/UI design programs in Houston and Austin.
