APPLICATION

The application process is made up of three stages:

#1

Introductory call
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.

#2

Portfolio Review
During this stage we would like candidates to select no more than three projects to jump start a conversation regarding their experience. Some guidelines:

  • Avoid work pulled directly from tutorials. Class assignments are fine as long as all of the code was written by you. If you cannot provide the actual code, please describe the project and your role in it.
  • Include with each project a brief README indicating the goal of the project, how to run the code (if applicable), and any points of interest regarding your process, learning points, etc.
  • A good project can be anything from a simple CLI tool to a full-featured web application.
  • Projects may be in any language/framework as long as the candidate can reasonably demonstrate understanding of their own code.
#3

Technical Interview
A follow-up, technical background check with a Moove-it Engineer to assess the applicant's overall programming proficiency level.

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.

TESTIMONIALS

Ashley Michal Lewis
Q12016 edition grad
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.

Q32016 edition grad
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.

FAQ

Will Moove-it provide laptops for participants?

No, participants are expected to provide their own personal laptop.

What kind of time commitment should I expect?

Daily standups' attendance is mandatory for all participants, and a minimum of 6 hours a day in the office is expected. However, as long as the apprentice demonstrates sustained progress and steady growth, by excelling in the completion of the deliverables, exceptions will be considered and attendance may be skipped upon prior approval from the coach.

How does the curriculum differ from a bootcamp?

This program does not include formal classroom instruction. Rather it requires self-directed study and research in order to meet the weekly goals.
