Business Mission Statement

Our mission is to disrupt the way software engineering is taught and to develop an exceptional network of software engineers, who are technically brilliant, collaborative, supportive, and passionate about pushing the engineering community forward.

Software Developer Program

The heart of Codesmith is the Software Engineering Immersive, a 12-week program in Los Angeles and New York City where engineers build compelling Open Source Products and develop expertise in computer science, full stack JavaScript and machine learning.

Employee growth

To develop the most exceptional group of software engineers - technically brilliant, incredible collaborators, passionate about building, and supportive of their community.

Creating generating of engineers

The impact can be extraordinary - a generation of engineers working at the world's best companies who are ready to build great products. We need people to help create this generation of engineers and push the programs we offer to new heights.

Incredible Team

We're building a team of exceptional people, who hold their engineering opinions strongly, but who ultimately put the product (and thus our users) above everything else. We receive 7 applications for every admitted student, but we have just 2 team members working on outreach. How? Incredible people who totally own what they're doing, who understand where Codesmith is going and have the ability to invent and execute on great ideas.

Excellent Work

We're looking for candidates who have pushed something to an extraordinary level, something that required drive and ingenuity - it might be your academic success, sports, a company, an organization.We also want to see that you're driven and ambitious, but put the deeper mission first and are great fun to hang out with.

Work Benefits

Working for Codesmith not only builds professionalism, it also comes with fun benefits. These include a competitve salary, health, dental, and vision insurance, paid vacation, education stipend, relocation assistance, and a fully stocked kitchen.

Working together

We also love to have fun! This includes team lunches and drinks,  and the opportunity to work out of our NY office.

Team Culture

The Codesmith community is a key part of what attracts students and team members to our coding bootcamp! We set the example for Codesmith students of what it means to work hard, support each other, and have fun while we’re at it. Collaboration, diligence, and reggaeton are what we are all about!
