We invented outcomes reporting, releasing the industry’s first jobs report in 2014. The next year, Flatiron and other leading coding bootcamps signed a pledge to “Coder-in-Chief” President Obama to report job outcomes according to rigorous, White House-approved criteria ahead of our 2015 report. With our 2017 online and NYC reports, we continue to be the only school to fully abide by these standards for transparency.
We are committed to abiding by the strict standards set with President Obama through the TechHire Initiative.
Our reports are independently examined by third party auditors to verify our data and ensure transparency.
100% of grads are reported on in our reports – no exceptions.
Few coding bootcamps follow reporting standards this comprehensive or transparent. Find out all the details of our student outcomes for our online and NYC programs – plus get our guide on what numbers you need to investigate in a bootcamp jobs report.
“Others that made the [Tech Hire] commitment included App Academy, Dev Bootcamp, Flatiron School, General Assembly, Galvanize, Hackbright Academy, Hack Reactor, MakerSquare and Wyncode – some of the most recognizable brands among coding bootcamps. New York City’s Flatiron is the only school to have released third-party verified and audited results.” Read more
“Schools should be releasing independently-verified hiring reports (plus admissions, attrition, salary rates, etc). Flatiron School’s Jobs Report is leading by example.” Read more
“Notably, all 28 of this year’s low-income students graduated from Flatiron School, with most getting jobs in tech afterwards. They’re now earning more than the typical graduate. This data suggests that a national talent shortage has little to do with innate ability, and more to do with the quality and accessibility of education.” Read more
Students who come to Flatiron School don’t just learn to code – they discover their passion, devote themselves to a lifelong craft, and transform their careers.

At Flatiron School, we’ve always been dedicated to helping students launch a career, not just land a job. Through our recent alumni survey, in which we surveyed 541 Flatiron graduates with a 30% response rate, we’re keenly aware of how our alumni go on to get raises, learn new languages, tackle new roles.
We found that our grads’ initial success is no fluke, according to our recent alumni survey. They go on to quickly prove their value and earn raises as they progress through their careers.
What’s more, we found no statistically significant difference in salary trends for male and female respondents.
Flatiron grads are adept at developing new skills throughout their careers because they’ve learned how to learn – to recognize patterns, abstractions, and commonalities between languages so they can jump into new languages as early as the first day on the job.
And they do! Our alumni community works across across a variety of tech stacks – some of which they learned here; many of which they didn’t.
Our alumni become prized employees at both scrappy startups and larger, more established companies, with 42% working at companies with 50 or fewer employees, and 56% at organizations with over 50 according to our latest NYC report.
Behind our near-perfect placements record is a partnership between our dedicated Career Services team and students. Here’s how it works.
Career coaches mentor our students through an effective job search via resume review, mock interviews, and strategies for building a job opportunity pipeline and getting a foot in the door at top-choice companies.
After years of helping students get hired, we’ve developed a proven framework for leading a successful job search. Nearly every student who has followed these guidelines has been hired.
We’ve cultivated relationships with employers who keep coming back to Flatiron School for developers. Now, Flatiron alums who have been in the industry for a few years are beginning to hire the next generation of grads.
“Over five years later, we still sweat over every job. And every time a student gets an offer, the entire team celebrates. We’re invested in our graduates’ success right along with them – that’s a big reason we’ve seen such great results.”
