Jigsaw Labs is a coding bootcamp located in New York City. Students can choose to take the 5-week Coding for Data bootcamp or the 19-week Data Science for Engineers bootcamp. In the Coding for Data bootcamp, students will learn languages, such as Python and SQL, and skills such as scraping and how to build Data Dashboards. Students will also learn API’s. Students who choose the Data Science for Engineers bootcamp will learn the elements of the data pipeline, such as Feature Engineering, Feature Selection, Linear Regression, and Cloud Computing. Students will be exposed to learning models such as Classification, Tree-Based Models, Clustering, and Data Storytelling. Finally, students will learn mathematical models including NLP, XGBoost, Regularization, and Deep Learning.
Prospective Data Science for Engineers bootcamp students are asked to complete a two-step application process. The first step is a cultural interview conducted over the phone. The second step is a technical interview, which occurs over Zoom. Potential bootcamp students will be paired with an instructor to solve a programming challenge in Python. In this technical interview, students’ technical and problem solving ability is assessed, as well as the students’ ability to apply newly learned information.
Jigsaw Labs offers job placement assistance for students of the Data Science for Engineers bootcamp. Students receive two months of weekly group sessions (offered online or in person), and four months of individual career coaching. Group career coaching classes cover topics such as portfolio-building and presentation. Individual career coaching sessions cover interview skills and application review.

- Great foundation for Data Science- 3/28/2020Randall • Student • Campus: New York City • Verified via LinkedInI was in the Programming For Data Science class. The course schedule was part-time (nights and weekends), which was a major reason I signed up.
The course is a great place to start if you are interested in data science. If you can't access and manipulate data, you can't be a data scientist. The curriculum is an intro to all the basics in programming one would need to produce and manipulate data sets. This is exactly what I needed to get started in this field.
Jeff, the instructor, is engaging during class and generous with his time. He was willing to stay after class for questions and very responsive to email. It's obvious that he cares about his students.
The only downside to this class is that the pace is very fast (meaning lots of topics over a short period of time). Overall, I would recommend this class to anyone that wants to get started in data science. You will pick up a lot of great information and meet a great teacher.
- student- 3/18/2020Shannon • Student • Course: Coding For Data • Campus: New York CityJigsaw Labs is a part time data science class. Jeff is a great teacher because he is very patient and good at explaining things. The class is small so there is lots of one on one attention. The students also work together to reinforce new topics and concepts.
- Journey to data science- 3/16/2020kani • Analytics senior • Graduate • Campus: New York CityIt is easy for skills to stagnate in an ever-changing face of tech. Before Jigsaw, I had been trying online courses with disappointing results. It is difficult to maintain the drive required to study unassisted. While leaning, I also had to satisfy the demands of full-time work. Jigsaw helped me solve this puzzle.
It is a powerful combination hands-first curriculum, a considerate instructor and an engaging cohort that made my experience unique. The focus on industry-oriented knowledge and project-based work is beneficial for professionals with a goal of practical learning. Along with course instruction, the community in our cohort enabled discussions as a part of learning which is essential to progress. The on-demand availability of the instruction was also useful part of understanding.
I feel fortunate to have found Jigsaw at the right time. I would recommend anyone keen on investing their skills to give it a shot.
