Le Wagon is a career accelerator, and the job prospects are bright. 


With graduates earning BRL4.500 average monthly salary in junior roles and often more than BRL7.000 with work experience, almost every one (95%) acknowledged that Le Wagon helped them get useful skills for the future of work. What's better? The flexibility, travel, mindset, people and culture that the tech industry and startup world bring. 

In Brazil there are tech companies being built all the time, creating huge demand for the digitally literate, like developers and technical co-founders, paving the way for the future of work and new working culture. 

When the bootcamp ends with Demo Day we keep in touch, giving resources about the job market, as well as hosting career weeks that connect alumni with our hiring partners. It takes less than 3 months for 74% of our alumni to find a job once graduating.

Le Wagon is inclusive, with the right mindset anyone can do it.


We cater to all ages, backgrounds and experience levels - everyone starts somewhere and is capable of achieving an epic career change, increasing their professional value or launching their startup, so don't be shy. 

We're keen to do our bit to help improve gender diversity in coding and tech. From featuring female speakers and role models to working with communities that support women to enter & remain in the industry, we've increased our male to female ratio, so everyone feels welcome and empowered to lead in their career.

The learning doesn't stop post-bootcamp, your value only grows.


Our alumni are continuously expanding their minds to stay up to date with recent advances in programming and development topics. We teach a specific tech stack in the bootcamp (HTML & CSS, JavaScript, Ruby on Rails, SQL for databases, UX/UI design and more), but this is just the start

We found that graduates are hungry for knowledge, learning things like React, Python, node.js or flutter when they leave, some even branching out to C# or Elixir. The Le Wagon alumni slack is where we share resources, knowledge, jobs, social events and lots more - you'll be part of our community for life. Graduates commented on their experience and learning curve here.

The first milestone of a future tech business?


Our Brazilian graduates are very business-driven: 15% launched a digital company after graduating and 40% are offering freelance services right after graduating!

Alumni are connected to grow and make a living together, sharing opportunities and business contacts every single day 😉
