The purpose

Since there is a significant demand for engineers with experience in almost every tech stack, we believe that Junior Academy may be an effective solution bringing value to the company in terms of development and budget. There are multiple reasons why companies should consider Junior engineers in their projects.

Let us quickly draw just a few of them:

 

  • Junior developers are handling easier tasks allowing seniors to focus on more complicated problems,
  • Junior engineers are highly motivated and bring fresh ideas to the development process,
  • They learn quickly & usually are more flexible,
  • Junior developers tend to be more attached to the companies in which they start their journey,
  • Regular feedback and the possibility to ask for advice from more experienced engineers allow juniors to grow as a developer & gradually deliver more & more.

Step 1

Scalac’s senior developer joins the project

At this point, our senior developer joins the project. While working on the tasks assigned – they gather all necessary information:

 

  • scope of the project 
  • the specific tech stack and libraries needed 
  • the internal organization and communication schemes
  • the work environment and culture 

Step 2

Scalac seeks junior devs in various environments

We seek the best matching candidates from our own developers’ pool or conduct a direct recruitment process for the project based on the requirements gathered in Step 1 and customer input. 

Recruitment process

Step 3

Selected junior developers enter the training process where they are familiarized with tech stacks and libraries needed, as well as the general project specifications and expectations.

Depending on developers’ initial skills, the process takes from 1 to 4 months. The final step in this programme is tech verification based on the project’s specific needs.

Step 4

Step 5

Upskilling Junior to Regular Developer

After some time (usually 3-6 months), the developer is able to deliver tasks and needs less guidance on the project. As a result of the process, a junior becomes a mid-level developer.
