Job Outcomes

1.  Web Developer

The most trodden of the career paths for our web developer graduates (as you can imagine). As a web developer you will be creating applications and services which can be used on the internet. You'll be working closely with the product team to understand the needs of the user and you'll build new features from that feedback. 

2.  Product Manager 

A main part of the product manager's job is to produce product roadmaps which then allow the tech team to prioritise which features to build or which to remove. They ensure that the product is build efficiently and quickly with the latest technologies and frameworks whilst responding to the feedback of the end user.

3.  Project Manager

You'll be tracking the project from begging to end; building timelines and setting deadlines. You're fundamental reponsible to the completion of the project and delegating tasks to the rest of the team. The project manager will often be reporting to senior management on the progress and any potential issues.

4.  UX/UI Designer

As a UX/UI designer you will be working directly with product manager and software engineers to design everything 'user interface'. You'll be building the interface and designing process flow to allow the user to comprehensively explore the site.

5.  Business Analyst

First of all, you'll understand the company inside and out! Enabling you to identify future needs and create solutions to meet those needs (usually in relation to software or information within a tech company). As a business analyst you'll help plan for the future to achieve the company's business objectives and goals.

6.  Data Scientist

Companies are collecting more and more data everyday. As a data scientist you are in charge of taking that data and making it useful whether that be through finding useful patterns within the data or using the data to solve business problems.

7.  Data Analyst

As a data analyst you need to be able to meticulously comb through date finding insights and analysis. This is then conveyed clearly through verbal, written and visual communication. So both communication and attention to detail are key!


8.  Machine Learning Engineer

As a machine learning engineer you'll be building algorithms and creating programmes that allow computers to take actions without direction from a human. The machine can then respond to it's surroundings for example without being directly controlled. 

9.  Data Engineer

A data engineer is someone who develops, constructs, tests and maintains architectures, like databases and large-scale processing systems. You will be transforming data into a format that can be easily analysed and will often be working closely with data scientists enabling them to work effectively. 

10.  Data Strategist

You must understand both the business needs and the technology requirements as well as the tools which the data scientists are using. As a data strategist you can communicate the goals of the senior management into a data driven initiatives.

Real people, solving real problems

Hello! I’m Jules Coleman. I’m founder and CTO at Resi. Beforehand I co-founded Hassle.com in 2010 and by 2015 the company was acquired for $37m. This is when I taught myself to code and started Resi. We've hired two brilliant Le Wagon graduates and are bootcamp hiring partners. I caught up with Katherine to give some insight into what we what we look for!

Graduate stories

Two months after Le Wagon, I'm now junior Full-Stack Developer at Drivy

"The curriculum is very well crafted, the teachers are passionate and the learning platform makes it easier day after day to grasp new concepts and get closer and closer to autonomy. Above the syllabus, the atmosphere was great, not only with my classmates but also with former alumni on Slack."

I had started with a very drafty MVP before Le Wagon but the complete operating platform was built from scratch as a project in the final weeks of the bootcamp.
