Beginner Full-Time Bootcamp

What Does a Software Engineer Do?

Software is at the heart of how we connect with others, conduct business, and explore new ideas. A software engineer creates applications and products that affect the lives of people around the world — and demand for the role grows year over year.

During our beginner bootcamps, you’ll learn:

  • How to build software
  • The fundamentals of computer science
  • How to use tools to develop and deliver applications
  • How to work effectively in a team environment
  • How to use AI tools for coding productivity, efficiency, and accuracy

Front-end software engineer

Someone who works on the front end, or the visible parts of an application or website. The front end is everything you can see and interact with, including colors, styles, and more. Using a house as an analogy, the front end is the exterior: the shape, the wallpaper, the faucets, and so forth.

Back-end software engineer

Someone who works on the back end, or the databases and infrastructure of an application or website. Thinking again of a house, the back end is everything you can’t see that makes the house work: the plumbing, electrical wiring, HVAC, and more.

Full-stack software engineer

Someone who works on both the front end and back end of an application or website, or the entire house. The technologies used on the front and back end make a technology stack, or “tech stack.” Companies typically choose one or more tech stacks to power their operations.

A Software Engineer’s Career Path

During beginner bootcamps, you’re not only preparing for a first job in the field — you’re getting ready for a long, fulfilling career in tech.

While there’s no single career path for all, many graduates grow into roles like these.

Software Engineer

Where you’ll begin (and where some prefer to stay for many years). You’ll be building software on a team. Our new graduates also get hired with different titles, including Software Engineer/Developer, Front-End or Back-End Engineer.

Senior Software Engineer

After you gain some experience, many companies promote or hire engineers into senior roles that require both building software and managing others.


You’ll oversee the team responsible for the planning, execution, and success of complex software solutions.

Staff Engineer or Chief Information Officer (CIO)

With a wider, longer view of company goals, you’ll be building processes for teams, championing product thinking, and providing company-wide technical leadership.

Most students in our coding bootcamps for beginners start with zero experience. Here’s what you need to apply and launch your new career.

  • Excitement about embarking on a challenging and rewarding journey toward a new career.
  • Interest in what it means to be a professional software engineer.
  • Readiness to work hard on an individual level and to collaborate with your classmates in ways that mirror professional environments.
  • Understanding of when to ask for help and an openness to accepting help from your instructors, classmates, and career advisors.
