Careers at Le Wagon


Le Wagon is a coding bootcamp that teaches students to develop web applications from scratch. Their curriculum and teachers give students all the skills and tools needed to kick-start their tech career, land a job as software developers, product managers, or launch their own startup.

They've been ranked #1 coding bootcamp worldwide for three years in a row. Launched in Paris only 5 years ago by ex-Google and ex-HSBC Engineer who wanted to make coding accessible and relevant for everyone, Le Wagon is now running in 32 cities worldwide and has more than 4,200 alumni.

In addition to their intensive 9-week bootcamp, Le Wagon has also just launched their first part-time bootcamp in London, enabling students to retain their job while learning. The first cohort kicks off April 6th for 24 weeks! Apply here.

Learn web-development

Learn all about Ruby, SQL, and the Rails application framework. Develop your front-end skills by using advanced CSS patterns (flexbox, CSS grid) and go deeper into Javascript and ES6, the latest version of Javascript. More details.

Think like a Software engineer

A person who has the big picture on technical issues, who understands what MVC means, knows how to design a database schema or to dissect an HTTP request, and who can start learning a new programming language very quickly.

Adopt a technical workflow

There's definitely a good way of building tech products and that's what we will teach you. Write your MVP's user stories, draw your database scheme, build a mockup with Sketch, collaborate using pull-requests and code-reviews on Github. That's how successful startups work.

Get the startup toolkit

Heroku, Stripe, MailChimp, Cloudinary, Algolia... We will teach you how to implement all these services to be more efficient at the launch of your new product. Save time, use the right tool for your specific need, that's our developer mindset.

Build your product

No one will teach you how to build web products as we do. Kudoz has just raised 1.2M, Impact is disrupting politics, MaShareEcole school, MedPics healthcare, Krawd marketing... and there are so many other projects in the starting blocks. Check it out for yourself.

Land a new job

Working as a junior developer for Stripe, Algolia, Molotov, Save, Compass, 55, Save, etc.. We will help you find your dream job, either as a junior dev, product manager or growth hacker. Discuss with any of our alumni to find out more!
