Hiring Our Graduates
Tough selection + Demanding training = Ready professionals.
You’ll get a developer with the demonstrated ability to learn a lot in a short amount of time. In our 10-week Academy, they have lived and breath code for more than 500 hours. Next, to classroom lessons, there are three (group) projects to give them a feel of working like in the real world.
Our graduates possess the following skills but are not limited to:
- HTML and CSS5
- APIs & Security
The students went on a big adventure; most of them quit their job before starting the Academy. Their commitment to making it work is visible from the day they stepped into our office.
We have welcomed people from over 35 nationalities (and counting). 40% of our graduates are female.
Most of our graduates have work experience; we have seen it all. From a doctor to a lawyer, from musician to historian. Yes, we train people to junior developers, but these people aren’t junior in life.
Interested in working with us, or interested in hiring developers?
The tuition fee is € 11.520, evenly divided over 24 monthly instalments which we only charge when the graduate finds employment.
Can I carry this tuition fee? Yes! Like 90% of the hiring partners do, they take it over off their employees and benefit from the tax break. Happy employee and happy accountant, score! Do I have have to? No. But please, offer your employee enough salary to pay it off themselves.

How can I get in touch with your Graduates?
You can either ask us to share a link to your vacancy with our Graduates currently looking for work, or ask us to approach individual Graduates selected by you from the list in the 'Our Hireables' section. Also you are welcome to approach Graduates yourself. For your convenience we listed their names, current residence, preferred stack, as well as links to their Github profile and LinkedIn.
Do I pay any tax on my employee's tuition fee?
No, as an employer you can pay for your employee's tuition fee free of any taxes(no salary tax, no VAT, no profit tax). Training costs are subject to the "Werkkostenregeling" (WKR), but excluded from the "forfait". See Handboek Loonheffingen under 20.1.3 (p.222), available here.
What salary can I expect?
Salaries for your first contract range on average between €2,300 and €2,400 bruto. On top of that your employers pays off your training directly to Codaisseur. In situations where the employer is not paying for your training on average your salary is between €2,500 and €2,600.
Factors that may impact your salary include: your skill level as a developer, the company and industry that you will work in, your previous other (professional) experience. As such we have seen exceptions on either side of the spectrum. Expect your salary to increase soon as your experience and skillset is growing and with that your value to your employer.
