Flatiron School Announces Entry into Denver Market

Located in WeWork's newly announced location, The Hub, the program works to up-skill hopeful tech talent


Published:

Quickly expanding coding boot camp, Flatiron School, announced its expansion into the Colorado market today, opening in WeWork's fourth Denver location, The Hub. Students can apply for admission to the new technology-focused program immediately for an expected March 2019 start-date.

"By providing an easier pathway for Denverites to change their careers, Flatiron School will help our graduates and the many Denver companies in-need of tech talent to thrive," says Adam Enbar, CEO and co-founder of Flatiron School.

Already, Flatiron alumni have gone to work for Colorado companies including Ibotta, Pivotal Labs and Vertafore.

"Ibotta supports Flatirons and similar coding schools [that] are helping educate and expand the pool of potential engineers in Denver's exploding tech scene," says Luke Swanson, Ibotta chief technology officer. "We hope we're lucky enough to have more Flatirons graduates come through Ibotta in the future."

Founded in 2012, the Manhattan-based program provides software engineering, data science and design courses, accompanies by career coaching and job placement support. Following WeWork's acquisition of the school in 2017, this marks Flatiron's seventh campus beyond its New York City flagship. Other global locations are spread from London to Houston, Texas and beyond. To date, Flatiron has seen more than 1,500 students graduate. 

The program enters the Denver market with the intention to fill gaps in technology employment.

"I was looking for a chance when I found Flatiron School," says Sergio Mendoza, who tended bar before enrolling in the online software engineering program. "Flatiron School not only opened the doorway to a life and career in tech, it led me to Denver where I'm working at Vertafore as a software engineer."

Flatiron's confidence in its job-placement is evident from its money-back guarantee for graduates. The school joins other providers including General Assembly, Turing and Galvanize, which purchased San Francisco-based Hack Reactor.


CODING SCHOOL GROWTH EBBING, NOT ENDING


To raise awareness for the opening, Flatiron is hosting public coding meet-ups November 14, November 28 and December 11.

Meanwhile, WeWork has signed five new leases in the Mile High City in 2018, including a second LoHi space, two River North offices and the Wells Fargo Center. Thanks to its ability to woo enterprise member clients such as FullContact, WeWork's Denver expansion is expected to continue. Presently the office-space providers is the second largest in downtown Denver.
