Holberton School offers a two-year higher-education program to become a full-stack Software Engineer. Through project-based and peer learning, Holberton School’s students unleash their creativity and naturally learn how to work as a team to solve practical challenges.
Holberton is a revolutionary new type of software engineering school that "has no teachers, no lectures, and no upfront tuition" (Fast Company) and "helps inexperienced programmers land jobs at Apple" (CNN). It is not only disrupting the education landscape; it is literally changing the face of Silicon Valley. While the rest of the technology ecosystem struggles with diversity, Holberton school is 40 percent female and 53 percent minority (New York Times).
Our innovative project-based, hands-on educational model is supported by tech leaders Jeff Weiner (CEO of LinkedIn), Jerry Yang (founder of Yahoo!), and Solomon Hykes (founder of Docker). Students learn while tackling relevant real-world projects, supported by tech industry mentors. Our approach works: Holberton graduates land software engineering jobs at the most-competitive tech companies in the world -- not just Apple, but also Tesla, LinkedIn, and NASA -- complete with high starting salaries and an incredible network of tech leaders and peers.
Holberton opens up these coveted positions to a highly diverse set of high-potential students insufficiently served by traditional high schools and colleges and/or lacking the resources to attend pricey prestigious schools. R&B singer Ne-YO is so enthusiastic about our potential to bring more minorities into the tech sector that he joined the board of trustees (Business Insider).
Holberton School provides a unique environment that enables a healthy balance of hard and enriching work, opportunities and support for career growth, and a strong sense of teamwork and community. This role will join an international environment where they will constantly be discussing ideas, learning new skills, and sharing their knowledge in a great location with a motivated team. Holberton School creates a place where people not only aspire to work at, but are inspired daily to stay.
