Hackademy is an intensive boot-camp and internship, organised by TWB, in the art and culture of Software Development in Sweden.
It introduces, mainly, newly arrived/refugee talent (Degree educated in a Software related field and fluent in English) to the skills, collaboration, processes and industry best practices expected in a Swedish software organisation.
If you are a talented software developer in search for employment in Sweden, we encourage you to apply (by sending your CV) for a seat on our next Hackademy. It is free!
If you are an employer looking for talented software developers, we invite you to contact us if you, and/or colleagues, would like to meet our participants. We do not charge nor take commissions when you find and recruit your next match!
Hackademy offers participants the opportunity to work on a real software project, with a real product owner, real expectations and hard deadlines.
However, we only choose projects that are non-commercial in nature and aim to bring about a positive social or enviromental impact.
From day 1, all our participants are introduced to the SCRUM methodology that will guide the pace of development of their software. From Sprint planning to retrospectives, passing by all intermediate stages, on a daily basis, repeated on every sprint.
We are proud to include some of Sweden's best SCRUM masters, coaches and certificate providers as our partners (You know who you are ;)
Probably the greatest lack that newly arrived talents complain from is the inexistence of an efficient local professional network of which they are a part.
Therefore, we strive to expose our participants to employers and potential future colleagues through a series of initiatives and events.
Talent without Borders is a non-profit organisation founded to help others. Therefore, our founders and board are engaged exclusively on a pro-bono basis. Hence, we are not looking for purely financial partners but rather engaged partners: Ones that are willing to take their corporate social responsibility with us by for example enabling their employees to volunteer with us, share their expertise with our talents, coach or mentor these in matters pertaining to qualified employment, invite the team for onsite visits and interviews, participate or facilitate our recruitment events.
These organisations helped us kick start our own. Thank you!
Meet our buddies!
