Coding Dojo is a great place to work for part-timers. They're very good at keeping you in the loop and the culture is laid back and open so I enjoyed my experience a lot!

Coding Dojo was a great place to build a foundation in computer programing. For anyone that is interested in learning how technology works, I would highly recommend this coding bootcamp.

Great learning environment
On-Site Service Specialist (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJune 11, 2018
The culture here is fast-paced for the students, but was slow enough for an on-site instructor to teach and engage students effectively. The staff were very good about promoting fitness and health as part of the curriculum.

Supportive atmosphere, lots of hours
Programming Resident (Former Employee) –  Tysons Corner, VAMay 31, 2018
I was not technically employed by the Coding Dojo but stuck around to assist others with their work and develop my own projects and professional portfolio. Those who are employed complain about the culture and work tremendously long, if undemanding, hours.

Great Place to Learn
Student (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILAugust 19, 2017
Coding Dojo is a great place to learn not only how to write programs but start a career as a software engineer.

They teach you how to look at problems and solve them like a professional developer not someone who learned to type text into a text editor and got it to work.

Great company in rapid decline
Community Manager (Current Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 23, 2017
The founder recently returned to take control of the company after being away for two years, during a rapid growth stage. He fired all the senior leadership that was responsible for the growth and completely tanked the direction of the company. Stay clear of this company and all bootcamp models in general. It's a troubled industry.
