About Us

Founded by a coding bootcamp alumnus in 2014, SwitchUp is a free and comprehensive resource where prospective students can compare top-rated tech bootcamps and programs, read reviews, and get advice on switching to a career in web development, data science, UX/UI design, and more.

Our research and rankings lists have been cited by The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, TechCrunch, Lifehacker, and Wired, among other publications.

At SwitchUp, we have witnessed the growth of the coding bootcamp industry first-hand. We know that when it comes to selecting a program, it can be difficult to find the perfect fit. We’re here to help you find a top-rated bootcamp that meets your learning needs and career goals.

Our Team

Sung Rhee

After working in the education industry for over 9 years as the CEO of Optimal, Sung became discouraged by how difficult it was to find accurate information about what's truly important to prospective students. He saw the need for sites dedicated to transparency around finding quality education options that are both affordable and accessible.

Sung's an Ivy League grad who's passionate about changing the landscape in higher education so it better reflects the interests of students. He knows prestige doesn't always translate to quality and doesn't want to see students get a raw deal.

Our Advertising Policy

SwitchUp makes money through lead generation. This means that we connect visitors with bootcamps based on the interests visitors have expressed. For some schools, visitors can also indicate interest by filling out a contact information form and giving us permission to share their information with a particular school. For more information about how we use your data, see our privacy policy. The money we receive from schools allows us to conduct and publish detailed research into bootcamps, so prospective students are empowered to make informed choices about their education.

Our Editorial Policy

The schools with whom we have an advertising relationship are referred to as "partner schools" and "featured schools and bootcamps" throughout SwitchUp. We ensure that our relationships with partner schools do not hinder our editorial integrity. Partner schools are clearly labeled as such throughout the site, and we do not show any preferential treatment when developing our ranking lists.
