Hours with Experts: One Student’s Journey to a Dream Career

Find out how Nick Rafferty went from Hours With Experts Data Engineering student to landing a full-time Data Engineering role in less than a year.

Hours with Experts is where those two passions come together.

A free, eight-week course sponsored by 1904labs, Hours with Experts covers the fundamentals of Data Engineering.

“I’ve just gotten to know so many more people in the tech community in St. Louis and really had a blast overall. Before this class, I was in no way close to a Data Engineer. And now can officially say that I am.”
Nick Rafferty

Follow Nick’s remarkable journey to discover how he ended up with his dream job as a Data Engineer a few months after completing the HWE program. 

1904labs does not run this program to train and hire Data Engineers for ourselves, but that’s how it worked out in Nick’s case. He got a job at another St. Louis consulting company after his graduation from Hours with Experts, but stayed involved in the program to help as an instructor. Thankfully, we found the perfect time to bring Nick onto our team.


If you’re looking to learn data engineering and gain skills like Nick did, our next Hours with Experts course is kicking off on October 4th. Complete the form below to learn more and receive your application!
