Revature is the largest employer of emerging technology talent in the United States. We are fueling the future of work by providing diverse technology talent at scale and closing the skills gap while giving everyone the same chances. Our goal is to close the opportunity gap in the technology industry by making paths for people who have the skills but may not have the network or access they need to get an entry-level job. We work closely with top universities and businesses and act as a link between higher education and the tech needs of modern businesses.
What’s the idea behind the Revature model?
The great thing about the Revature model is that it makes “wins” for its employees and clients. Our employees win because they can start their tech careers and permanently join top companies. Our clients win because they get the long-term talent they need to succeed. This is what helps Revature win more clients and business partners.
In particular, top companies from a wide range of industries come to Revature when they need to hire entry-level tech workers with specific technical skills. These companies tell us what they need, and we make a training program for them that fits their needs.
Then, Revature hires motivated college graduates who are good at technology and love it. Revature puts these employees through a 10–12-week paid program that teaches them how to become software developers.
Once training is done, our clients interview our newly-trained software engineers and choose the best ones. Software engineers have a two-year deal to work for their clients. The client can offer to hire the software engineer full-time during this time. Since clients come to Revature for long-term talent needs, this is usually what happens.
To sum up, Revature charges its clients for the work of its software engineers. Then, these funds are used to pay our software engineers’ salaries and pay for their training, which is why this model is called “employer-paid.” In other words, employers are willing to pay more for well-trained software engineers because they know they will be useful from day one and fit in well with existing teams.

I signed a contract that says I can’t say anything wrong, so I won’t say anything good. This is the truth, and you can decide what to think about it. If anything in this review is against my contract, this review will be changed or taken down.
There is a good flow of course material and a lot of course material available. The instructors are beneficial and knowledgeable; you don’t have to pay them if you don’t pass. Housing is included during training.
Very low standards for passing (many students who passed didn’t know the material) Didn’t help me find a job – Unresponsive/unhelpful HR department – Only builds technical skills and doesn’t focus on soft skills. – If you’re doing well, you’re given more work instead of being allowed to keep doing well.

“Revature has an excellent training program if you are willing to put in a lot of work. The people who work there are great, but it can be hard to find a job. If you want to have a good time here, you should be ready to learn a lot and dig deep into technical details.

What do you need to do to get a job?
If you want to work for Revature, you need an associate’s degree.
Here’s why: the companies we work with have education requirements. To ensure that all Revature employees are successfully assigned to software implementation projects for our clients, we must follow the employment conditions of our partners. But we don’t need our employees to have a background in IT or programming or to have worked in technology. Our program is a good choice for people who want to change careers.
To work for Revature, you must also be willing to move anywhere in the contiguous United States.

During training, you’ll meet your classmates and instructor, and you’ll start right away to learn the technical and “soft” skills you’ll need to work on an enterprise software project.
