“I have just started as a Strategist at Ranku, a discovery engine for online degrees from traditional (non-profit) universities. I am focused on data analysis and process development, as well as assisting in some front-end development. The combination of my prior analysis experience and my newly acquired developer skills allows me to pitch in where needed across the team.”
– Kerry C.
“I get paid to code full-time on real products and learn more in a month than I did in half a year of self-directed study.”
– Christopher L.
“I just wanted to thank you again for everything. RefactorU really set me up for success in my future. I was offered a full-time position at Markit and accepted it yesterday.”
– Arvind D.
“I’m a full-stack software developer, meaning I build web, mobile, and desktop applications. I mostly use MEAN stack technologies – i.e., MongoDB, Node, Express, Angular – Ionic for mobile apps and Electron (Atom Shell) for desktop apps. The thing I like most about my job is that I get to “nerd out” and build apps that people actually want to use, as opposed to drafting motions designed to ruin someone’s life. My new career is easily as challenging and intellectually stimulating as lawyering, but it also rewards creativity and provides significantly better work-life balance.”
– Roy M.
“RefactorU was the catalyst to my career change from Pharmacy to Web Development. Thanks to RefactorU, I am now working as a software developer in the Bay Area.”
– Eunice K.
“I just got a job offer from IBM to join their new IBM Design team with a starting salary of $75,000/year! This is literally double the salary that I was prepared to accept for a first job.”
– Andy T.
“I made some great friends and got a great job, and I cannot tell you how happy I am. I solve puzzles every day, design beautiful websites, and go home every night happy (and well paid!). Thanks to everyone at RefactorU, I love what I do and do what I love.”
– Kate W.
“Changing career paths is one of the most difficult decisions you can make, but RefactorU gave me the knowledge and skills to go from CPA to Developer in Silicon Valley.”
– Jordan B.
“In my first real interview after graduation, I had to take two computerized JavaScript aptitude tests. I scored on the high end of “proficient” on the first one, and “advanced” on the second one! The division director sent me home early saying he had experienced dev's on his team who couldn't have done it any better.”
– Matthew R.

We focus our efforts on an amazing education and making sure that our students end up at great companies after graduation.
