Why We Do It

Our Vision is Simple

At LaunchCode, we seek to create career pathways for people who want to work in tech from all different backgrounds.

More Opportunities

Tech talent exists across the board, but the opportunity to start a career in tech has not been equally distributed. We work to level the playing field and change that.

Have Skills, Get Jobs

We believe if you have the skills to do the job, work hard, and keep learning, then you should get the job.
