Flywheel co-founders Dusty Davidson, Rick Knudtson and Tony Noecker will help choose the students for the class, which will start accepting applications Monday. Flywheel Web designer and developer Josh Lawler will also teach the class.

“I really enjoy partnering with firms who have a clear need and helping them fill the need. They really understand what their demands are and I’m able to help them find students,” Dorsey said.

The school also runs a .NET programming class in partnership with First National Bank, which offers the possibility of a full-time job, full-time wages paid throughout the course and tuition reimbursement.

Tuition for the Flywheel class will run $5,500, but students hired by Flywheel after completion of the course will be eligible for up to $3,750 of tuition reimbursement.

Flywheel’s Davidson said the staff grew from four to 21 in 2014. He expects to hire at least that many in 2015.

Awesome news to see them pushing 50 employees by the end of the year. Will probably need a bigger office!

Flywheel, an Omaha-based WordPress hosting and management platform, celebrated its fifth-anniversary last week and announced the hire of their 100th employee. Flywheel supports over 100,000 users and does it all from what is seen as a typically non-traditional startup setting in the heart of the Midwest.

Over the past five years, Flywheel has expanded from three founders to their current team of 100 engineers, support staff, marketers, salespeople and more. They’ve grown from a small office in a co-working space, to building out over 12,000 square feet of office space within two historic buildings located on the western edge of Omaha’s Old Market.

“The growth of Flywheel is largely built upon assembling an incredible team. Omaha is a place where you can stand out from the crowd and cut through the noise,” said Flywheel CEO and co-founder Dusty Davidson. “There are lots of exceptional people who are hungry to be a part of something that’s challenging, fast-growing, and where they can make a huge impact. ”
