Programming Boot Camp: Hiring Day for Prospective Employers

Hack Reactor is a three-month programming boot camp that covers the fundamentals of software engineering, the web, and advanced JS patterns.  Incoming developers go through a rigorous application process (~30:1 applicant ratio) and begin the pre-course curriculum with a minimum background of syntactic fluency and basic web app development skills.  Our grads are now working as engineers at companies like Salesforce, Pandora, Adobe and Groupon.

About Our Programming Boot Camp

During the 800 hours our students spend with us in the classroom- 6 days per week, 11 hrs/day, for 12 weeks- we create pixel-perfect mock-ups of popular websites with HTML & CSS, implement client-side form validation and AJAX calls using jQuery, build foundational knowledge by re-implementing basic data structures and utility functions using plain JavaScript, and create fully-featured applications using a variety of frameworks and libraries across multiple languages.

Through our practical, hands-on, project-based curriculum- which emphasizes collaboration thorough pair-programming, best practices such as iterative development and TDD, and use of on-the-job tools such as git- we seek to create developers who can contribute to your teams across the full-stack from day one.

Talent Referral Collaboration

We are interested in helping your search efforts.  In return, we ask for a placement fee based on a candidate's first year salary. Please don't hesitate to reach out to with further questions or ideas for collaboration.
