Our Engineering Bootcamp is a 17-week fully paid training programme that provides the environment and skills to become a full-time Software Engineer here at Beamery.
More about the Bootcamp
Our Bootcamp is aimed at unlocking unique growth opportunities for the next generation of tech leaders. Last year we had 7 Bootcampers join our programme, all of which became full-time software engineers at Beamery.
Who is the Beamery Bootcamp for?
We are passionate about closing the diversity gap in the tech industry. In light of this, we wanted to ensure that this program is accessible for people from all backgrounds, not just those with a computer science background. We're creating a safe and inclusive working environment for everyone to have the opportunity to work in tech.
If you love to code and have a dream to pursue a career in Software Development, then this could be a great opportunity for you to get the skills you need to kick off your career as an engineer. We're not looking for professional experience, but will need to have written lines of code in any language to be eligible. (Don’t worry, as we’ll provide some helpful guidance to get you started). Most importantly we are looking for people who have soft skills, the right attitude and potential to grow with us.
In a recent survey we found that 50% of our engineers started from unconventional backgrounds into tech from either self teaching, bootcamps, or learning on the job. This proves that anyone who has enough desire, passion and determination can become an amazing engineer. And it doesn’t hurt to also have an amazing team of engineers who have been your shoes supporting you along the way
