What it's like to work at LaunchCode

Are you a person who's always listening for connections? Got an earnest drive to open doors to opportunity for others and make an impact on their lives? If so, then you've come to the right place.

You're part of changing lives and changing the face of the tech industry. Traditionally, education and jobs in technology haven't been widely accessible to many demographics and populations. Of LaunchCode students enrolled in courses so far in 2021, 52% identify as people of color and 57% identify as women. More than 80% of LaunchCoders placed into paid apprenticeships in 2021 have been offered a permanent position, where the average LaunchCoder more than doubles their previous salary.

You'll pull together with your teammates to grow the organization's reach, our outcomes, and our sustainability. LaunchCode has a life-changing, career-making model. Our goal is to put it to use for as many people and companies as we can. Whether by reaching more learners, building more employer partnerships or securing more resources to support our programs, our people realize that growth and innovation are central to maximizing our impact in the world.

You'll be part of a company that values diversity, equity, and inclusion among our staff, students, and board. In 2019 and 2020, the St Louis Women's Foundation named LaunchCode as an honoree in its employment scorecard initiative for demonstrating a strong commitment to women in the workplace. Forbes also named us one of 2020's best startup employers in the U.S. But beyond external recognition, we believe deeply in Black Lives Matter, celebrating Pride all year round, and uplifting women in tech.

You'll be immersed in a culture based on shared values. We love to laugh, compete for the best GIF game on Slack, and show off our pets. We also share these values: collaboration, trust, appreciation, and being kind.
