At LaunchCode, we’re more interested in what you can do than what you have done. That is, we’re not concerned about whether or not you have a certain degree or professional work experience. However, it is important that you’ve gained a baseline of skills in your field of interest, be it through formal education, an informal study program, or on your own. Before applying, we recommend having at least one example of your work available that shows what you can do.

Applicants with direct work experience may be eligible for more advanced placements within LaunchCode partner companies.
