What do you already know? What do you want to learn?

Front End Developers work with the aspects of software that the user directly interacts with. They often have knowledge and opinions on UX and design. Back End Developers work with the underlying logic of the software. They more often work with databases, states, and architecture. UX/UI Designers work to make every interaction with the software a positive one for the person using it. Digital Strategy is providing analysis and recommendations on what to build and why. QA Testing is ensuring that the software works as expected and bugs are caught & fixed. Project or Account Management is working with the team and the client to make sure the project stays on time and on budget.

Let's talk availability.

Our core office hours are 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday. The apprenticeship is a commitment of 30 hours per week. Software for Good values work-life balance, especially for our apprentices, so we offer flexibility for occasional obligations during the day. However, it's essential that apprentices spend quality time as a team throughout the workday to learn and build together and with Software for Good staff.

Now, on to the fun stuff!

That's it!

Thanks for applying! We'll review applications and reach out to people we think would be a good fit for this program.
