Our application process has been designed to explore whether you have the aptitude, motivation, and commitment to excel in a career in tech. It will involve the following:
Application: Submit your CV and answers to a few set questions that will allow you to showcase why you think you’d be a great fit for the programme.
Interactive Project: A short problem-solving task — suitable for those with no coding background, and achievable in an afternoon.
Founding Team Interview: A 45-minute video interview with a member of our founding team where we can get to know you and your career aspirations.
Co-Founder Interview: A 30-minute video interview with one of our co-founders where we’ll discuss your motivations and what you want to get out of the programme. If you’re successful at this stage of the process, you’ll receive an offer and an intended programme start-date.
Technical Pre-Work: A 4-week course designed to ensure everybody starts the programme with the same foundational knowledge. Pre-Work starts on set dates throughout the year; you will be informed of your pre-work start date when you receive your offer.
How can I prepare for my interviews?
The best way to prepare for Academy interviews is by making sure you can speak clearly and confidently about your motivations for joining the programme and wider career aspirations. This might involve practising with friends and family beforehand.
What is The Mark: Phase 1
The goal of The Mark: Phase 1 is two-fold:
For you to confirm that working in a technical role is something that you can see yourself doing;
For us to ensure a common baseline in skills so that we can use our programme time most efficiently.
By completing The Mark: Phase 1, you will gain some practical and foundational skills that all efficient engineers have. Such as expressing ideas in code, debugging errors through Google and articulating your thoughts to others.
We will provide resources and office hours to support you in this.
What happens if I don't complete The Mark: Phase 1
You will be unable to start the programme without completing The Mark: Phase 1. Failing to complete may lead to your offer being revoked or start date being deferred.
