Growth Associate, Lisbon

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.


Some quick facts:


- Founded by Wharton and Harvard grads in the fall of 2013

- Operations in Miami, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Mexico City, Berlin, Amsterdam and Sao Paulo

- 100% YoY Growth (help us to keep it going!)

- Already graduated c.2k students

- 60+ global team members + VC-backed
