Who we are

We're helping to build meaningful careers for all

Momentum was founded in 2017 to provide coding skills training focused on the needs of the modern workplace. We are guided by the belief that education creates opportunity and that knowledge has no bounds. We give career changers the skills and support they need to find meaningful work and see our role as a catalyst for positive life change.

We offer full-time immersive code classes for the career changer, part-time classes for those curious about tech, and customized training for organizations. Our course pairs best-in-class coding instruction with 1:1 career services to ensure that our graduates make a smooth transition into the workforce.

Momentum is a community-driven code school. Our graduates, hiring partners, and mentors share our vision of inclusivity and are invested in the success of our students. We welcome anyone who feels stuck in the wrong career and craves meaningful, in-demand work to join us.

Momentum is based in Durham, NC and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we now offer our immersive course in a live, virtual experience. We are also proud partners of Momentum@Morehouse,​ the first coding bootcamp and continuing technology education program for Morehouse College, located in Atlanta, Georgia, in collaboration with Opportunity Hub.
