Event Details

App Academy


App Academy is a full-time, 12-week software engineering course. From thousands of applications, we've selected the top 5%. We're lucky to have an exceptional and diverse group of highly motivated self-starters, all super smart, and lots of fun.


Our program teaches students multiple technologies, including Ruby, Rails, SQL, JavaScript and Backbone (for more info, check out our curriculum), but the core skills we're training are completely language-agnostic. Students learn how to ramp up on new tech fast, how to write scalable, robust code and how to architect software solutions to real-world problems. They graduate with github repos containing thousands of lines of code showing what they're capable of. By the end of our program, our graduates will be ready for whatever you have to throw at them; whether it's Ruby, JS, Python, etc.


Past hiring companies include: Facebook, Vimeo, Hipmunk, Twilio, and Thoughtbot.


 

Open House


We want to help our students find great entry- or mid-level engineering positions, and we're sure you'll love them as much as we do, so we're excited to invite you to come in and meet our students at our Open House on Friday (November 15)!


The Open House will be structured in a "science-fair" format: each student will have a booth set up where they will be demoing the projects that they built during App Academy. You'll be able to quickly evaluate many candidates and decide who you'd like to bring in for further interviews on-site. Refreshments (beer!) will be provided during the event, and you're free to drop in whenever you'd like between 3-6pm.


 

Hiring Commission


In exchange for access to this recruiting event, App Academy asks for a hiring commission equivalent to 20% of the student's first year's salary, payable if a company hires any students in conjunction with the open house (payment is due within 30 days of signing an employment contract). $5000 of this hiring commission is passed on to the hired student.

 

 

Location


We are located at 1061 Market, 4th Floor.
