When we first started Rithm in 2016, we made a bet. We believed that there would be people willing to pay a bit more for an immersive coding program that placed the quality of the education and student experience first.
Two years later, we’ve proven that you can build a successful program that focuses on small class sizes and experienced instructors. Our graduates have gone on to work at top-tier companies like Pinterest and Palantir. 74% of our graduates find work within 90 days, and with a median salary of $110,000 (details here).
But there are still challenges. To date, our biggest difficulty has been making the program as affordable as possible without sacrificing quality. Our pricing has always been $24,000, which unfortunately has made our program inaccessible to many potential students. That’s why we’re excited to announce that starting with our first class next year, we’ll be adding a deferred tuition option. This means that you won’t have to pay any tuition until you find a job as an engineer.
