Over the last 4 years, the Iron Yard has led the code school industry in preparing students for careers as software developers. The industry as a whole is still young and its leaders face the challenge of a nascent market, as well as the demands facing all institutions in the higher education marketplace.

In considering the current environment, the board of The Iron Yard has made the difficult decision to cease operations at all campuses after teaching out remaining summer cohorts. We will finish out summer classes completely, including career support.

While our journey is coming to an end, we will always take pride in the thousands of people our staff helped to launch new careers.

About The Iron Yard

The Iron Yard exists to create real, lasting change for people, companies and communities through technology education.


Our educational resources provide a solution at the juncture of supply, demand, business and a broken education system. We are committed to training the highest-quality technology professionals in the world, both in skill and in character.

Our mission

Our mission is to connect with people pursuing the craft and lifelong adventure of technology and help equip them with the skills they need to both get started and progress throughout their careers. Our hope is that those we journey with are energized to make a difference through their work.

We believe that passionate, talented people who love what they do will create and sustain great families, jobs, companies and solutions to the world’s problems. It’s been said that the sum of parts can be greater than the whole. We couldn’t agree more. The Iron Yard is made up of a broad, deep and growing network of instructors, developers, designers, marketers, entrepreneurs, partners, board members and hiring partners, all of whom are passionate about about waking up each day and accomplishing our mission.

Meet the Team

We've been told we're a work hard, play hard crew, and we couldn't agree more. Our standards for producing awesome stuff are extremely high, but so is our capacity to truly enjoy life alongside the people we work with.

Values & culture

People first, always

We absolutely love what we get to do every day, but more importantly we're passionate about who we get to do it with and the entrepreneurs and students we get to serve. They are the reason we come to work.

Flat structure and highly entrepreneurial

We don't manage people. We give them a goal and let them use their skills to accomplish it in the best way possible. This can be difficult if you like a lot of structure and daily direction. For the self-starter types, though, it's vocational bliss.

'Being home for dinner' policy

We work really hard, but a constantly imbalanced life isn't healthy for anyone. We work in a way that is fast, efficient and fun so we can invest in important areas of life outside the office.
