About NSS…

Nashville Software School (NSS) is a non-profit vocational school. Nonprofits are pretty rare in the coding bootcamp world. In fact, there are only a handful of other non-profit coding bootcamps in the US. We were the first.  

NSS is in the opportunity business. Our goal is to open the door to tech careers for as many individuals in middle Tennessee as there are junior tech jobs. Additionally, we place an emphasis on opening doors for individuals from under-represented groups who may have never realized that a tech career was an option for them.

Founded in 2012, we are one of the longest-running coding bootcamps in the country. In February 2020, we surpassed 1000 graduates with a placement rate (in field) over 90%. 

Our team members put students first. They thrive in a fast-paced environment, embrace feedback from students and colleagues, and are willing to jump in and help each other.
