Admissions Manager

Job description

#About Ironhack

Ironhack is an education startup that was founded to disrupt the way we learn about technology. We think it sucks that we’ve been learning the same way since the Industrial Revolution, so we empower students to find meaningful careers in software development or product design by offering immersive learning experiences to extremely motivated people.

Our higher purpose is to transform the education space by making it more customer-centric and outcomes-driven. Students finish our program with a new way of thinking and approaching problems, resulting in new jobs, companies they’ve built, or promotions at their current jobs.  

We are constantly updating our curriculum to reflect changes in the industry and we work hard to build a passionate community for our students and staff. With 15+ nationalities represented in a staff of 50+ people, we are no strangers to diverse points of view, unusual background stories and independent go-getters. Everyone is heard, there is no bureaucratic B.S.
