Our Story

The technical skills gap in today’s world is massive and it continues to grow.

We started Firehose over 4 years ago to close this gap and give people the in-demand technical skills that aren’t taught in traditional 4-year college programs.

We started humbly by teaching web development to 25 students in a Boston classroom. Very quickly we expanded to teach hundreds of students at places like Harvard, Carnegie Mellon, Brown University, and Babson University.

Our in-person teaching experience helped us fundamentally understand how people learn technical skills. Before we even thought about building an online learning platform, we refined the Firehose teaching style for almost a year, constantly adapting our curriculum in the classroom.

We’ve grown up a lot since those early days. But we still draw from our in-classroom lessons to constantly improve our curriculum and learning experience.

Today, Firehose runs on an online learning platform, which includes career support, 1-on-1 training, and a dedicated team of trainers to help each member get the most out of the program.

At its core, Firehose simply gives you knowledge in a personal way that makes things click and stick. We call that our personal and smart learning experience.
