Modern Software Engineering

We believe that modern software engineering is about more than code; join us and develop an outcome-oriented, growth mindset that focuses on delivering results and directly benefiting yourself and your organisation.

You'll be committed to life-long learning and have both the mindset and skills to rapidly achieve your own objectives. You'll be ready to join teams and hit the ground running, having already built, test-first, several command line, web, and single page applications using multiple languages and frameworks. Above all, you'll think about the quality of the code you write and find ways to keep it easy to read and easy to change.

You will also need exemplary communication and emotional intelligence skills alongside your technical skills to be a successful software engineer in today's workplace. You'll cultivate these skills during project-based learning, self-assessments, peer review, group reflections and emotional intelligence workshops.

This is the kind of modern software engineer you'll become, and one that will help accelerate your own growth and career.
