From Tier 3 College to Google
I have been privileged to have been guided by people like Anshuman, Abhimanyu and looking forward to use these learnings while building a strong career ahead! Getting to learn System Design topics from people having worked at top tech companies and algorithms from people who have been at ICPC World Finals is an altogether different experience. The guest lectures and mentorship by people at top positions at companies like Google itself provides a clear idea of how to build a great career.

Thanks to Scaler I landed my dream job
While interning as a Software Engineer I was looking to make a move in my career. I heard about Scaler Academy (IB Academy): learn new skills, pay nothing upfront and get referred to the dream companies! I decided to quit my job, and focus on the opportunities. Everyone said I was making a mistake, but I trusted myself and the team at Scaler. On the last day of my old work I received an offer from Amazon!

Scaler Academy proved to be the turning point of my career
Back in March 2019, I received an email about the Scaler Academy (IB Academy). I immediately felt that I should be a part of, and it proved to be the turning point of my career. I was referred to so many companies that I stopped being afraid of interviews. Midway through the program I got referred and accepted an offer from Mindtickle. Scaler has played a big role in my pursuit of becoming a 10x engineer.

Frequently Asked Questions

At the moment Scaler Academy is a program for software engineers. The program has different classes each month, catering to various levels of coding experience. Make sure to follow our announcements to find out the latest information.
Scaler Academy is a 6 month program.
We try to adjust the timing of the program to cater for the students. The classes are held either in early mornings or late evening, to make sure neither your studies or work is impacted.
All lectures are recorded and you will have access to the recordings after the lecture is completed.
The program has a fixed schedule, during which you will have to attend lectures with a dedicated professor, Teaching Assistant, and personal mentor. 3 hour daily commitment is required for the next 6 months in order to achieve positive results.
During the mid and end of semesters we will be conducting remedial classes to cover skipped topics.
Yes, you will receive a certificate of Scaler Academy's program completion.
Yes, definitely! We are launching classes for experienced developers every few months. If you have already applied for Scaler, you will be notified via email about the future classes.
Entrance Test ensures that you would be able to participate in the program and easily follow its contents. There are 2 outcomes: either you pass the test and join the upcoming class, or we help you figure out your weak areas for now. In the latter case, we tell you our exact assessment and give you a set of study recommendations. You can then participate in the next upcoming class.
  • Basic Coding: we will check whether you understand loops, conditional statements and if you understand the code in depth. You should be good at debugging and dry running code.
  • Medium / Advanced coding: we will check where you are currently. This helps us customize the pace of learning in the program where it doesn't feel too slow or too fast for you.
No, college CGPA does not play any role in your entry to the program.
No, shifting moving the classes is not possible. Every class has its own unique entrance exam, which is required to be cleared as a part of that class.
Scaler Academy is an educational initiative with a focus improving your skills and ensuring that you scale up in your desired career path. It does not have to be in a new organization. For example, if you are working in XYZ Technologies as an SDE-1 and wish to learn new skills to move up to SDE-2, Scaler would help you achieve exactly that.
We partner with over 500 companies including Amazon, Uber, Zenefits, Booking.com, Tower Research, etc. You will be referred to one of our partner companies and more at the end of your program.
You will be referred to multiple companies until you get an offer letter above the Min. Guaranteed CTC. We will also help you do significantly better in campus placements, and identify opportunities across other mediums.
You only need to interview with the companies you find interesting. However, our promise of referrals is fulfilled even if you turn down the interviews.
You can share your offer letter with us. While the Min. Guaranteed CTC can not be changed post signing the ISA, we will ensure that we help you move above the new offer and help you achieve all required skills for a quick promotion.
At the time of enrollment, you will be signing an Agreement with a PPO clause which excludes your current internship from any payment liability.
Referrals usually start after the 5th month of the program, when all DS/Algo lectures are covered and roughly 70% of the program is finished. Referrals are the last mile to test the knowledge gained during the program.
We have a wide network of partners, both in colleges and companies. Our rule of thumb is building trust between Scaler Academy and the students.
  • 1.5 lakhs upfront: Plain and simple. Classic Tuition fee model.
  • 3 lakhs upfront with job guarantee:Pay us 3L at the start of the program. If you do not land a job paying more than your Minimum Guaranteed CTC within a year, we will refund your money back
  • Postpaid: Pay 15% of your monthly gross base salary for a period of 2 years. Paid only if your annual CTC is above the promised Min CTC.
The payment is 15% of the Base Salary. The amount is to be paid only if we get you a job paying the Minimum Guaranteed CTC or higher.
If you can't get a job you do not need to pay us anything.
The program is free only for the first week. If you continue to attend the lectures, you need to pay the complete program fee.
No. Your salary hikes do not affect monthly fee.
Yes. We can connect you with our banking partners and they can help with an EMI Plan for the model of your choice. *EMI plans may have interest rates applied by the banking partner.
Scaler Academy is an educational initiative with a focus on improving your skills and ensuring you receive your desired salary. Our payments are in sync with our mutual success, which is measured by your desired salary, thus you would be liable to pay the program fee.
You are liable to pay when you get placed above the Minimum Guaranteed CTC, irrespective of the next steps you take. If you are not planning to be in a full-time job after graduating from Scaler Academy, we suggest not joining to avoid the financial burden while not working.
You are liable to pay when you get placed above the Minimum Guaranteed CTC, irrespective of the next steps you take.
Yes, it would not affect the payment plan. However, we will help you find a new and better job immediately.
We will keep referring you for the next 1 year from the program start date. If you still do not find a job, paying more than Minimum Guaranteed CTC using any channel, you are not liable to pay.
We would recommend you to join Scaler Academy only if you want to get a job right after the program. If you want to join just to learn, we recommed exploring Prepaid payment plan.
Students pick their mentors themselves on a first come first serve basis.

The Minimum Guaranteed CTC is a number we calculate to indicate what you could earn as a minimum once you get hired after joining Scaler. For experienced professionals, the range is around 7 LPA to 40 LPA, and for the recent graduates - 5 LPA to 25 LPA. These numbers are just for information purposes - the actual number is calculated once you apply and participate in the entrance test.
