“Hack Reactor Grads are Our First Choice”

The best coding bootcamps simulate a real-world software environment for their students; the grads are so well-prepared, they come in and hit the ground running, that’s really what we’re looking for.
-Dustin B., Cisco

Better Together

In 2018, Galvanize acquired Hack Reactor to combine forces with another top coding bootcamp, further establishing Galvanize as a leader in software engineering education with an alumni network of more than 10,000 graduates. Since the acquisition, Galvanize and Hack Reactor staff, instructors, and former alumni have worked together to combine the best parts of both bootcamps to ensure the bootcamp remains best in class.

“The curriculum seems to be perfectly formed... with short, interactive lectures followed by immediately heading over to our workstations and implementing assignments based on the content we just learned.”

Eric Levin, Founder & CEO, JunoVR

“The job search after Hack Reactor was as transformative as the bootcamp itself. It wasn't easy, but I was thrilled to see my early failures grow into later successes, including offers from top Silicon Valley companies like Google, Lyft, Yelp, and several hot startups.”

Jason Zedde, Software Engineer, Lyft

“I’ve been around teachers for a really long time, both in a collegial sense and in a student-teacher type of relationship. One of my favorite teachers of all time was the lead instructor of Hack Reactor at Austin.”

Evelyn Binkard, Software Engineer, Kapsch Trafficcom North America
