Does CodeBreakers work? Here's just what a few of our graduates are saying

Lucy Wang | Google 2020

“As a student aiming to land an internship in the upcoming Summer as well as a full time job in the following Fall, Darek and CodeBreakers helped me to achieve both of my goals. I remember the time whenever I was stuck on practice interview questions or algorithm concepts at random times, and the coaches were always responsive to clear my doubts immediately.  The mock interviews helped me to be confident and thoughtful to nail the countless interviews I had through out the year. I met Coach Darek in 2019 April, after one year I graduated CoderBreakers with two internships and one full time offer with my dream company.” 

Mo Luo | Google 2019

“As a busy consultant, I had no idea what it would take to break into software engineering. I managed to squeak pass the Google phone screen but knew I wasn’t ready for the onsite. That was when I started to work with Darek and Codebreakers. I needed to maximize the little time I had and the Codebreakers materials helped me formulate a studying game plan. In addition, Darek’s advice on habits and last mile preparation were critical in helping me get a Google offer.” 

Dave Wixon | Twitch 2019​

“Coming from a non-CS background, breaking into software engineering is daunting. Without a degree, it’s hard to sell yourself as qualified and competent.

I began working with CodeBreakers at the end of 2018. I was working full-time, and my free time was limited, but Coach Darek was able to work with my busy schedule — I spent 3 months studying algorithms and learning from well-thought-out materials.  Then, we spent 3 months practicing mock interviews and reinforcing my weaknesses with 1-on-1 coaching sessions.  They really care about you and want you to succeed.

Before I knew it, I was in the interview process for several big-name companies, and received a great offer.  I know I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for CodeBreakers.”

Allen Tran | Amazon 2019​

“As a new grad that majored in CS. I soon came to realize that my CS curriculum did not prepare me for interviews. Shortly after enrolling in Code Breakers, my mentor assessed my CS foundations and got me started on one-on-one mock interviews. After each interview, I got lots of critical feedback that provided insight on what the interviewer is looking for and that helped improve my performance in subsequent mocks. I eventually got an SDE role at Amazon.”

Start, Study and Succeed

Here is a shortlist of the reasons to join CodeBreakers.

  • Increased Pay: Our median graduate receives 145k in total compensation after CodeBreakers. 
  • 1-1 Mentorship: You get to work 1-1 with an experienced software engineer from a FAANG company to make sure you get a great job
  • Mock-interviews with coaches that interview at their own FAANG company. Companies typically have a cooldown period of 1-year before you can interview again. Doing mock interviews with CodeBreakers identifies weaknesses so you can solidify them before the real interview.
  • Referral Network: The CodeBreakers referral network spans across 25 tech companies which ensure you are able to get the interview once you’re interview-ready.

CodeBreakers is a 100% online program that starts once you enroll. You can complete it at your own pace, working through the program as quickly or as slowly as you choose. 

If you are graduating in the 2020-2021 school year and are looking to find a high paying job after graduation, you may qualify for our fast-track program for new graduates. This is a program specifically designed for students joining the cohort after August 1st.

The ISA pricing for our fast-track program is outlined below. 

  • Pay nothing if you get a job paying less than $100,000.
  • If you get a job paying between $100,000-140,000, you would pay CodeBreakers 15% of your total salary for 18 months after you start working.
  • If you get a job paying at least $140,000, you would pay CodeBreakers 20% of your total salary for 18 months after you start working.
  • The payments are made in monthly installments after you start working.

Given the recruiting cycle is starting very soon, we cannot provide a 2-week trial like we normally do. For this reason, we are waiving the usual $1,000 deposit for students in the fast-track program. 

If you are graduating in the 2020-2021 school year, please see the above section for “I’m graduating soon (2020 or 2021). What are my options?”

Income Share Agreements (ISAs) are a form of deferred payment, allowing students to focus on learning — and not on financing. With our ISA, you pay nothing until after you start working a job that earns at least your target minimum salary. We find that by tying our success to yours, we’re forced to evolve our product to ensure that you are getting job offers that you want and are excited about as fast as possible.

Sign up for a free consultation via the Calendly below. Over that consultation, you’ll share your background and get a quote for an ISA that CodeBreakers can work with you.


After a 2-week trial of the program, there is an initial deposit of $997 due. If you follow the program, then this deposit is entirely repaid if you don’t get a job within 6 months.

We understand that due to COVID-19 that many have lost their current jobs and can’t afford the $997 deposit. 

Please still apply via the links on this page and do let us know of your situation and we will be happy to discuss alternatives. If you can demonstrate commitment throughout the first few weeks in the program, we may be able to waive the initial deposit.

We’ve worked with candidates with 20+ years of experience to get roles paying $400k and new graduates getting their first tech job and we understand there is no Income Share Agreement that will work for everyone.

If you already have done internships or have work experience, we can work together to find income share terms that work for you.

Schedule a consultation with the link below to get a quote for the percentages we can offer.

We have three different payment plans tailored to your needs:

Option 1: $0 upfront + Full Income Share Agreement. ~15% of total compensation for jobs over 100k.

Option 2: $5,000 upfront + Half of Income Share Agreement

Option 3: $10,000 upfront.

Note: Unlike the ISA there is no guarantee of placing you a job. Most choose the ISA for this reason as it completely reduces your risk. 

All lessons and resources provided are fully online. No relocation or commute required.

The program in total takes ~300 hours. Typically our students commit around 15-hours per week to finish the program within 6 months.

This is not a hard rule and we do not drop students. We understand that things come up and our coaches will adapt to your situation as needed.

There are 2 ways to apply.
  1. Email with the following information. CodeBreakers will follow up with the next steps within 1 week.
    • Your Name
    • LinkedIn Profile
    • Copy of your Resume
    • Brief description of your programming background
  2. Sign up for a free consultation via the Calendly below. Over that consultation, you’ll share your background and get a quote for an ISA that CodeBreakers can work with you.
