Become a Developer

Learn to code and become a Junior Software Developer or Junior Cloud Engineer with _nology. Prior to your employment with us, you’ll embark on 12 weeks of fully remote (full-time) training conducted by our team of expert instructors.

Kickstart a career in tech

Spend 12 weeks (full-time) training with our instructors, learning the foundations you need to launch a thriving tech career. Upon successful completion of the training, we’ll hire you as a _nologist on a starting salary of $50k+Super with pay rises every 6 months. You’ll then be deployed to work on-site with one of our clients (think Deutsche Bank, Accenture, Macquarie Group and more) as a Junior Software Developer or Junior Cloud Engineer depending on the training cohort you joined.

How our Tech Accelerator works

  • We’re addressing the digital skills shortage by running our own technology training, designed to equip you with the skills required to launch an exciting career in tech.
  • You can view the Software Engineering curriculum here, and the Cloud Engineering curriculum here.
  • We’ll teach all the skills you need to thrive in your new role, from problem-solving to collaboration, and from coding to managing projects.
  • You’ll spend 12 weeks training with our expert coaches (full-time). It might sound daunting at first, but don’t worry – since 2018, our global team have helped hundreds of _nologists with no previous experience launch a thriving new tech career.
  • Training is open to any tech enthusiast, from any background. No previous coding experience or background in tech is necessary – just the passion and determination to learn!
  • Our aim is to tackle the skills shortage and lack of diversity within the tech sector by breaking down the barriers to entry and making space for everyone, regardless of their background.

Handy Tips to ace our assessment process

Our training is intensive, which is why we ensure everyone who joins us is ready for 12 weeks of fast-paced learning. Whilst you don’t need a background in tech, there are a few key skills we’ll be looking out for, including self-development, intellectual horsepower, learning on the fly, curiosity, honesty, integrity, problem-solving ability, and an encouraging/ sharing mentality.

In order to ensure the training is right for you, we’ll conduct a bias-free solo interview – we view CVs ‘blind’, meaning that our assessment process is as inclusive as possible right from the beginning. You’ll then be invited to join our aptitude test – it’s not as scary as it sounds, this is just our way or seeing how well you can identify patterns and use logical thinking to solve problems. Again, you won’t need any previous coding or tech experience to do well here! You’ll then join our group assessment centre, where you’ll get to meet other like-minded individuals through one of our ice-breaker sessions, take part in a beginners training session about JavaScript (one of the coding languages we teach), and get involved with a group problem-solving activity.

If you have any questions about the assessment process, we’re here to help at any point. We’re passionate about getting people into tech, regardless of their background, so we want to ensure you feel comfortable and confident going into your training with us. We work with a number of CSR and charity partners, to ensure our assessment and training processes are adequately adapted to those with different needs.
