#About Ironhack

Ironhack, founded in 2013, is an education startup that was created to disrupt the way tech education works!

We empower students to create a new path - one that leads to meaningful careers in software development, product design, or data analytics in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional education. 
 
It’s with this mindset that we’ve become one of the key global players in bridging the digital skills gap, serving both those looking to get into tech, as well as the companies hungry for tech talent. 
 
Quick facts:
●  Courses in Web Development, UX/UI Design, Cyber Security & Data Analytics
●  Operations in 10 locations worldwide
●  Graduated over 9000 students 
●  150+ global team members
