Gain On-The-Job Experience
Continue learning and building your skillset during your paid apprenticeship with mentoring and support from the LaunchCode community.
Get Hired Full Time
More than four out of five LaunchCode apprentices are hired on as full-fledged employees at the end of their apprenticeship.
We help job seekers enter the tech field by matching driven, qualified workers from all different types of backgrounds with employers experiencing a shortage of talent.
Here's how it works:
Tell us your story and show us your tech skills through a brief online application (20-30 min) and coding puzzles (30-60 min). Get Started!
Allow yourself at least 1 hour to complete your HackerRank test. Your test scores are a big portion of your application process.
Tell us more about your learning journey, and show us a project that displays your tech skills. We then work with you on your evaluation.
Grow your programming skills, while our placement team starts connecting you to interviews for tech apprenticeships with employers.
Get paid to work on a team of experienced software developers, get paired with a mentor that invests in your growth, learn on the job, and prove yourself.
Dependent on your employer evaluation of your apprenticeship, you may receive a potential job offer once your contract is up.
"I've been in the military, at a university, in the workforce, and never really found my niche... Then I ran into LaunchCode and actually found a career that I enjoy, get to continuously learn and be interested in the job."

We create career pathways for people who want to work in tech, regardless of their backgrounds — for free. We know talent exists evenly across society, but the opportunity to start an upwardly mobile career in the technology industry does not. LaunchCode apprenticeships open doors and help level the playing field. We exist because we believe if you have the skills to do the job, work hard, and keep learning, that you should get the job. If you want to learn tech skills to start your journey, head on over to see which course is right for you. Already have the skills? Get started below to apply for a paid apprenticeship.
