Hundreds of companies – spanning media, government, e-commerce, software, and more – have hired over 1,000 Flatiron School graduates since we opened our doors in 2012. Here are just of few of the top companies that keep returning to Flatiron School for new technical talent.
A snapshot of some of the industry leaders hiring Flatiron School grads.
“We see a certain level of maturity from graduates who come out of Flatiron. They’re willing to do what needs to get done and they show a lot of pride in taking on that work. This maturity also helps them play well with others; they often seem to understand how the world works, especially when they have had some sort of career in another field already. They also come with a solid understanding of the technology and often approach problems through that lens.” Read more
“We’ve had a lot of success with Flatiron School in particular because it’s an elite program with rigorous training that produces technically strong developers. Their students also embody a lot of the characteristics we find attractive. For example, Flatiron School tends to admit really smart, really motivated people who are committed to careers in software development.” Read more
“I look for someone who can balance solving a problem on their own, asking questions when they are stuck, and constructively arguing their viewpoint when it differs from the team. [The Flatiron grad we hired has] been a fantastic fit and has far exceeded our expectations.” Read more
“Flatiron grads have consistently demonstrated that they bring the right mix of skills and aptitudes to our firm. They have the technical foundation to rapidly expand their knowledge to new areas, while their pre-Flatiron experiences allow them to share a variety of perspectives. We regularly find that they are hybrid thinkers who can combine technical proficiency with an appreciation of the human side of data.” Read more
“We find each of them motivated to learn new things and take on new challenges. They get along great with the rest of our team, and they are dedicated to helping their team, company, and clients succeed. On a technical level, Flatiron grads come out of school with a solid technical foundation that’s more geared towards real-world development than most university degree programs, in my experience.” Read more
“Salt of the earth. Wind beneath my wings. Perhaps that’s a bit much, but Flatiron School seems to have a knack for finding inquisitive, kind people and I’m grateful for the time I get to spend with the Flatiron graduates who work at New York.” Read more
We admit diverse classes of students – artists, analysts, athletes, layers, writers, and more – but there are certain qualities that all Flatiron School alumni share.
Flatiron School students possess a growth mindset — they’ve learned how to learn, are constantly improving, and are able to master new programming languages and skills throughout their careers.
No significant piece of software is built by one person. Students learn how to collaborate through pair-programming and group projects. They’re ready to join organizations as true team members.
Our students possess both creativity and analytical ability – a rare combination that helps our alumni think beyond technical boundaries to build products that connect with users on a profound level.
