SAN FRANCISCO, March 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The MakerSquare School of Software Engineering officially announced today the launch of a new campus in New York City. MakerSquare has worked tirelessly to craft over 500 exceptional software engineers in Austin, San Francisco and Los Angeles with a job placement rate of 96%. Over that time, alumni have gone on to work for some of the most prestigious organizations in the world like NASA, Google, Facebook and Apple. Applications are now open for their May 31 cohort in New York City.
MakerSquare was recently featured as Leading the Bootcamp Revolution in Streetwise's Austin Innovations in which co-founder Harsh Patel stated, "We have nearly 300 companies in our hiring network from Reactor Core. So, these are like warm leads we have for our students." Reactor Core and MakerSquare have been able to amass their invaluable network of hiring partners as a result of the tech industry's need for talented software engineers. "In 2012, there was a direct need for more skilled software engineers ... and this need will continue to grow. We started MakerSquare because we believe that the skills one needs to be a successful software engineer don't have to come from a traditional university," says Patel.
"MakerSquare is an incredible pipeline to tech jobs," says Hack Reactor Co-founder Shawn Drost. "They're expanding to reach more students, opening their doors to varying skill levels and will continue to establish strong partnerships with leaders in the tech space."
