CBRE’s annual Scoring Tech Talent report placed Kansas City at seventh overall, noting the increase of over 11,040 tech jobs in the last 5 years alone. Almost 94,000 workers in the area are employed in tech-related positions, which equates to about 5% of the area’s total workforce. Several local tech startups have gained national attention, and more continue to emerge. The city is also consistently ranked second in the best cities for women in tech to find employment, due to the fact that female tech workers earn more than males on average.

As a student you’ll spend each day learning from technical experts with up-to-the-minute insight you won't find in any textbook.

Learn By Doing
Prime’s curriculum is engineered from top to bottom to prepare you for the software engineering workplace through exposure to pragmatic best practices and real world work. Our assignments are abstracted from work done by entry level programmers in our hiring network, and the projects in the second half of the program are tackling the real technology needs of startups in our community.

Our network of apprenticeship positions, designed specifically with Prime graduates in mind provides three or more months of paid, on the job experience to get your resume started.
