STEVEN BALASTA

Steven joined Flatiron School as a student in 2017 after completing a Bachelor's degree in philosophy & working as a tutor & administrative assistant in New Jersey. After completing our immersive Software Engineering program, Steven discovered a passion for education & returned to campus as a Software Engineering Coach (then known as a Technical Coaching Fellow), supporting even more students through their career changes & tech journeys at Flatiron School. In early 2019, Steven officially became one of the Lead Instructors of Software Engineering for our full-time in-person immersive program in Manhattan, spending his days at Flatiron School giving lectures on Ruby, Ruby on Rails, React, & Javascript, & offering individualized support to students across countless cohorts. Steven has helped launch the careers of so many Flatiron students just like him, & is passionate about the value of community & connection in supporting a career transition, a new interest, or a journey back to school.
