Following their bootcamp training, CodeSquad grads are placed in internships at companies in Greater Boston.
Agile is integrated into our curriculum. As students learn web development, they gain experience with user stories, acceptance, standups and retrospectives.
Classroom projects and homework are designed to mimic the experience of team-based software development. Class communication takes place largely on Slack, assignments are submitted via GitHub, and resources are shared through our learning management system.
Skilled in Git & Testing
Students learn the importance of robust version control and testing, using industry-standard tools to track projects, resolve merge conflicts, and build their own automated and bespoke tests.
During the internship, CodeSquad offers optional weekly check-ins with the hiring manager to assess the intern's performance and identify opportunities for guidance and additional training. For added support, volunteer career mentors can be provided by CodeSquad or identified internally.
Expand your talent pool
CodeSquad offers a pipeline of entry-level software talent that may not be part of your existing recruiting strategy. Let CodeSquad help you develop the talent that your team needs.
"Try before you buy"
Companies who host CodeSquad interns are under no obligation to hire them for permanent positions. The internship is a short-term opportunity for students and employers to assess their fit within your team. However, we believe our students will surprise you with their knowledge and potential.
Build team morale
Employees who use their valuable skills to "give back" can gain a sense of purpose that goes beyond the company mission and paycheck. And working with an organization that appreciates their expertise can help align charitable activities with the corporate mission.
Add units to our curriculum
Companies who are committed to hosting interns can work with CodeSquad to customize our curriculum, to fit the needs of their technology stack.
