THIS IS WHAT YOUR PEERS TO-BE SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE

The Growth Tribe Academy: How to 180 your career perspective!

I learned real practical skills, did 14 scientifically based experiments with 2 amazing kick-ass team members in a rocketship scale-up and went from smart kid with a so-so trajectory to a professional working at aforementioned rocketship-scale up. Above all, they taught me not to fear stuff you don’t yet understand (like javaScript, MySQL) and who I’d want to be in 4 years (David). Buy the ticket, take the ride.

Tom Goulooze

Trainee

One of the most important things you learn at Growth Tribe is the growth hacker mindset! Growth Hacking isn’t just a compilation of techniques, it’s much more a way of thinking. And it’s helping me a lot in my new position at Foodora. I also learned to apply a bunch of super powerful tools that would’ve made my life A LOT easier if I had known them before. If learning turns you on and you’re looking to up your game on the job market: this is one of the best things you can do!

Margo van der Laan

Trainee

While I had a permanent job in Rome, I did the only “rational” thing. I packed my bags, and moved to Amsterdam to join Growth Tribe. Everything you thought you knew about marketing is obsolete. Believe me… life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. Let the Tribe Growth Hack your Life!


PS: Where I am now? Happily growth hacking for Catawiki, the fastest growing company in Europe

Andrea 

Giordano

Trainee

In my search to combine online marketing with data analysis, I found out about Growth Tribe Academy. 

Six weeks later, I was ready for a rollercoaster ride with Growth Tribe. Growth Tribe Academy made me more data-driven, taught me web analytics and most importantly allowed me to meet awesome, intelligent and like-minded people. 

I was hooked on growth hacking. Growth Tribe Academy was a hell of a ride, but it made a freakin' big impact on my career.

Sjors Mahler

Trainee

Located at the heart of the city, Amsterdam’s Marineterrein, 

we turned a former EU conference facility into our campus.

  • 650m2 of dedicated training space
  • Ultrafast fiberglass internet to make sure there’s nothing in the way of execution
  • Lounge & chill areas to wind down and let your learnings sink in.

READY TO INVEST IN YOUR GROWTH?

F.A.Q.

  • How will the participants be selected?

Trust us, we have a team of hardcore growth hackers and Artificial Intelligence professionals who know how to pick the real talent.

  • What does the selection process look like?

You start by filling out our questionnaire. 


When you fit our selection criteria, we will send you a Challenge. You will have two weeks to complete this Challenge successfully, after which our trainers will check & grade it. 


If we are still convinced you could be one of the trainees in the coming traineeship, we will get in touch with you to plan in a Skype call with one of our trainers. 


If you succeed you will become part of our talentpool and we will do our best to match you to one of the companies. If you are matched, companies will decide if they want to invite you over for an interview. 


From then on you are in the hiring process of the company. If it's a match: you are hired by the company and you’ll get a spot in the traineeship. 


  • Do I get a salary or compensation?


It’s good for you to know that there are no costs for the trainees. The company who will hire you invests in your education and you will receive a salary that ranges from €2000 to €2400 based on your experience.


  • Can I apply if I am not from The Netherlands


Yes, if you are a citizen of the European Union or have a Dutch working permit. Unfortunately at this point we cannot fix a working permit for you. Student permits are not valid as you will be hired by a company.


  • What does full-time mean?

This means you can’t work or study next to it or do it part time. You will be hired as a full time Trainee by a company for a period of 12 months but with long term intentions. In the context of this, you will also receive extensive training and coaching to upskill yourself at the same time.


  • Are the coaching sessions group or individual?

Even though the training is done in groups, the coaching sessions are individual and tailored to you and your company.


  • Do you teach in Dutch or English?

English. Some companies will require Dutch speaking trainees.


  • What are the costs for trainees?

There are no costs for the trainees. The company who will hire you and invests in your education.


  • I’m a company and I am interested in hiring a trainee of the program

Great, please email jim@growthtribe.nl


  • I’m a company and I am interested in bringing in my own trainee in the traineeship.

Great, please email jim@growthtribe.nl


  • Do I get an official Degree?

Yes! You get an official Growth Tribe certificate that you successfully finished the Academy.


  • Where does the Academy take place?

Located in the heart of Amsterdam at the Marineterrein.


  • What's the name of the guy with the Indian mask on your awesome logo?

He's called the "Medicine Man". This info will come in handy later ;)


  • I don’t feel like I match the qualities you describe on your website, can I still apply?

Yes, please try :)

Growth Tribe is Europe’s first growth academy. We empower people and companies to rapidly gain new skills in areas such as ‘data-driven growth marketing’ or ‘A.I. without code’.
