This Company Keeps the People Learning and the Beer Flowing
Education is the key to a better future, and no one understands this better than the great people at Ironhack. Founded in 2013 and based in Miami, Madrid, and Barcelona, Ironhack is an education startup that offers eight-week learning bootcamps in web development and iOS technologies. Its programs help thousands of people change career paths or further their current trajectories.
And because the focus is on intellectual exploration, it’s no surprise that graduates of Ironhack have the highest average salaries of all the coding schools in South Florida, and 93% of graduates acquire jobs in their given field within three months.
To help so many people, Ironhack is committed to making sure its team members are just as inspired by the students as the pupils are by their instructors. “The most beautiful thing about working at Ironhack is the quality of people we meet on a daily basis,” says Alia Poonawala, Marketing and Community Manager in Miami. “It is so inspiring and exciting to see people from all walks of life make the investment in themselves to learn something so new and yet so vital.”
Ironhack is also dedicated to allowing autonomy across the board for team members. “Each employee is in charge of steering their ship and building things in the way they see fit,” explains Nizar Khalife, Head Instructor in Miami.
And if all of this doesn’t already make you want to submit a job app to Ironhack ASAP, here’s one last fun tidbit: Craft beer is always on tap.
