An introductory call with the pre-screened applicants, aimed to acquire a better feeling about programming background, career goals, along with their motivation for joining the program. This would be the right time to address queries around expectations, goals and program structure.
We would like candidates to select at least three projects to send us after the introductory call. Our technical experts will review the work and analyze the candidates’ previous experience. We recommend:
Technical background check with a Moove It Engineer to assess the applicant's overall programming proficiency level.
Candidates that excel in the technical interview are invited to a final interview that evaluates if they are a cultural fit for Moove It.
Ideal candidates possess a strong understanding of object-oriented programming fundamentals, and can speak confidently about their most recent projects and contributions. Strong preference is also given to applicants who exhibit a passion for self-directed learning, proactive attitude, and teamwork.
"As a self-taught developer, this program gave me the opportunity to test my skills within the context of a professional development workflow under the guidance of an experienced developer. My mentor is supportive and respectful, responds promptly to questions without condescension, while challenging me to think critically about coding decisions. This is the perfect opportunity for a self-motivated, independent learner to transition into a production environment with a company that values their developers and the community."
"As a recent graduate from college as a Computer Engineer, I was looking for my first real job as a programmer. I was able to use all the skills I developed while at school, and also find new skills that helped me as I entered the working world as a developer. My mentor helped teach me the foundations and the culture around development. I was challenged each day to test my limits, but I was also encouraged to ask questions and try my own solutions to each problem I faced. This opportunity is great for a new developer, and could be a stepping stone to joining a company that values its employees."
