Regardless of where they come from or their prior programming expertise, our graduates are hired into top technology roles when they graduate.  These roles include Fullstack Developer, DevOps Engineer, Data Analyst, Data Engineer, Audience Analyst, Junior Developer and more.  Some may also return to their previous company with a promotion and new technological skillset.
