#About us

Ironhack is an education startup that was founded to disrupt the way we learn about technology. Our higher purpose is to transform the education space by making it customer-centric and outcomes-driven. Students finish our program with a new way of thinking and approaching problems, resulting in new jobs, promotions at their current jobs, or companies they’ve built. We are now operating 9 campuses globally and graduated over 3500 students already.


Ironhack Lisbon kicked-off in November 2018 in a coworking floating desk. By September 2019, we have already enrolled over 130+ students in our bootcamps and became the fastest-growing tech school in Portugal (or we believe so!).
