You have the power to change your life

Our data engineering program teaches you the skills to get a job in the fastest-growing field in tech. 

No previous experience required.

Our graduates land their dream jobs

Our curriculum is designed by industry leaders and practitioners. 

You’ll build a portfolio, show off your work during an internship, and learn how to ace your first job interview.

The difference is you

Our most successful students:

  • Have the drive
  • Make the time commitment
  • Have a stable work environment

They do not always have:

  • A background in math or science
  • A Bachelor’s degree in computer science
  • Prior coding experience

Our Data Stack difference is:



Our bootcamp is built around the latest tech. Cutting-edge tools like ChapGPT and Google Cloud gives you an advantage in the job market.



Our curriculum is created by people with a deep understanding of the technology. You’ll be learning from instructors who have years of experience in the field.



After seventeen weeks of coursework, we place you in a six-week internship. This real-world experience will build your resume and give you the confidence to enter the workforce.


Job Readiness

Standing out once you graduate is more than just having the technical chops. At bootcamp you’ll polish the skills you need to present yourself, and to ace technical interviews.

We practice, practice, and practice again until you are confident.

Is this program for me?

Data Stack Academy’s bootcamp is challenging. The curriculum is rigorous, and making a career change can be daunting. For our graduates, the hard work pays off.

Our students come from all backgrounds, and most of them have no previous experience in tech. What all our successful students have in common is that they’re patient, dedicated, and able to put in the time.

If you have questions or concerns, schedule a call. We’d love to chat.

Our free Data Engineering 101 workshop is also a great way to see what class is like before you enroll.

Our next cohort: October 2023

This is a big decision

Before you decide:


Bootcamp is a fast track to starting a career in tech. It’s an alternative to a university degree in computer science, at a fraction of the time and cost.

At Data Stack Academy’s data engineering bootcamp, you’ll spend six hours a day learning the tools, working with classmates, building polished portfolio projects, and doing timed drills to prepare for technical interviews. After the coursework, you’ll have a six week internship. It’s rigorous, but our students find it rewarding. At the end of six months, you’ll be fully qualified to get a well-paid job as a data engineer.

Data engineers organize large amounts of data, get rid of the junk, and transform it into a usable format. Then the data can be used to look for patterns that help us understand our world.

At bootcamp you’ll learn everything you need to excel as a data engineer, including

  • Python, a versatile programming language
  • creating and working with databases
  • analyzing and visualizing data
  •  working with big data on Google Cloud
  • new AI, like ChatGPT

A data engineer a out of school can expect to make about $90k/year, according to Glassdoor in 2023. For every two years of experience, you can expect this to increase about $10k.

Nope! There are computer programs to do the math for you. You just have to write the code that tells the computer what to do.

Not all bootcamps are created equal. Data Stack Academy gets our students job ready with daily timed coding challenges and support from experienced mentors. Our graduates stand out with extraordinary portfolios and interview skills.

According to Course Report 2023, 80% of graduates get jobs using the skills they used in bootcamp. Data Stack Academy’s graduates are landing well-paid jobs at top-tier companies.

If you leave bootcamp for any reason, you’ll only be charged for the coursework you attended. Please see the Acknowledgement of Cancellation Policy for details.

Before bootcamp, all students are required to attend the free Data Engineering 101 workshop. This is the best way to get a feel for bootcamp before you register and pay tuition.

We can never predict what will happen in tech, and the downturn in tech has impacted a lot of people. Tech always goes through cycles. However, data engineers are still in demand. Data Stack’s curriculum is constantly being adapted to the job market, so our graduates can fill roles that other people can’t.

AI will change many aspects of our lives in the near future. While many job titles in tech may change, the demand for skilled data engineers will remain the same.

For more info about new, high-paying jobs for data engineers in AI, check out this article.

Fall of 2023 will only have a full-time cohort (six hours a day, five days a week), but we plan to have a part-time program in the future.

If you fill out the ‘Get Started‘ form, we’ll be in touch when a part-time cohort is available.

Internship is guaranteed for students who:

  • Complete all the coursework
  • Pass all the code review projects
  • Pass all the graded quizzes with 70% or higher
  • Complete a capstone project
  • Complete career services activities

After the coursework, students and internship companies go through a matchmaking process. Completing the internship is part of Data Stack’s graduation requirements, so we make sure every student who qualifies is placed at a host company.
