Sonia Morris, Product Owner, LPL Financial
“These days, I work for a leading company in the finance industry, supporting a software platform that helps financial advisors better serve their clients. I enjoy leading a team and being part of developing a useful product. It’s a management-track role, and that’s exactly where I want to be.
Revature has been key to getting me there, because the program didn’t just teach me technical know-how. It developed my leadership and interpersonal skills, gave me confidence, and set me up with industry experience right out of the gate. That’s why I’m proud to call myself a Revature alum.”

Jeff Myers II
“Revature’s training program was the most mentally rigorous work I had ever done up to that point, but it was that hunger for learning and a fierce determination that got me through. I soon realized that, while my bachelor’s degree had given me a solid grounding in code, it hadn’t taught me what it was like to develop software in real life. The Revature program and the subsequent placements (mine happened to be with two well-known consulting companies working for some of the largest banks in the country) bridged that gap.
I learned how to take an idea from scratch, build the front end, build the back end, and deploy the software out into the world. Finally, I had that industry experience that employers were looking for.”

Title: Technical Analyst
Background: Bachelor’s, English
“Revature was literally a launchpad. It gave me what I needed to get a foot in the door — to go from graduating with an English degree to Revature and then to land in a career where, at the same time I’m building my technical skills, my team lead is really keen on using my soft skills, my organizational skills, my analytical skills.”

Title: Software Engineer
Background: Bachelor’s, Computer Science
“I was definitely looking forward to joining Revature. I knew that they were going to teach me a lot, and I was excited to learn. But wow, I did not expect to learn as much as I did and gain the level of confidence I have now. Thanks to Revature, I have never felt more confident. As far as what I expected from Revature, obviously I got that and more. I feel great. I feel like I’m capable of taking over the world.”

Take advantage of the opportunity and don’t let entitlement get in the way. Advance yourself, focus on the technology, and focus on improving yourself as a person.”

Is Revature Legit?
Revature is the largest employer of entry-level tech talent in the United States, with more than 10,000 software engineers deployed to work for leading organizations such as Salesforce, Peloton, and Bank of America, to name just a few of our partners.
At Revature, our reviews prove that we’re a company genuinely dedicated to creating opportunity for workers and fueling innovation for our partners. However, Revature isn’t necessarily for everyone. Following a period of 10-14 weeks during which we pay our associates to train, they go to work on-site for our corporate partners as part of a two-year agreement.
