The job board exclusively for Europe's leading developer bootcamp
We've been helping large companies hire our developers for many years and they pay us £5,000 per hire for the privilege. However, not all companies can afford our entire suite of services, so we've created this new platform as a means to help smaller employers like you get access to our amazing software developers.
Submit your full job description to our system through a simple form and make it available to the Makers Academy talent pool.
We'll check your role and ensure it's right for our developers. We'll then advertise it for 6 weeks on our internal job board.
You'll receive applications as you would with a typical job board. We'll leave it up to you to find the right candidates for your company.
You have to be amazing to study at Makers Academy. We have a tough selection process, which tests for determination and technical aptitude, and accepts < 10% of applicants. We find exceptional people for you, and then train them.
Our students spend 10-14 hours a day, 5-7 days a week, learning to be developers. They're mostly career-changers and know what working hard is: the kind of developers a startup or growing company needs.
The only people who will see your job will be super-smart, super-driven Makers Academy trained developers. The ratio of high-quality, brilliant people is much higher than any other source of talent. There's always around 45 job hunters.
We're allowing you to put your company in front of the best junior developers looking for work right now
It's a closed, private platform, only accessible to the developers who have completed the course and are actively job-hunting. They've spent a lot of time and money learning to code therefore extremely eager to start working as soon as possible. It's not hit-and-miss like other job platforms - you know you'll only receive applications from the developers we train.
Makers Academy developers are passionate, driven, curious and engaged.
They solve their own problems, are exceptionally fast and effective learners, and understand the business context beyond the code.
The majority of our graduates have been successful in another industry, including law, marketing, banking, design, and many more: that's experience they'll bring to your company.
ThoughtWorks usually hires just 1% of people we interview
but we've hired 68% of the people we interviewed from Makers Academy.
Makers Academy is a Conveyor Belt of Awesome.
There's no other source of recruitment I'd put this much energy into.
A lot of software engineering graduates haven't done anywhere near as much actual software development as your guys. Their ability to organise, cooperate and just get things done is something you don’t see in most seniors, let alone juniors.
The Makers Academy graduates we hired have been awesome. We thought we'd need more resource alongside them, but that hasn't been the case: they're just so good!
Your grads can actually code: they're able to approach a problem and build a quality solution. They hit the ground running, where uni grads typically have a bigger learning curve. Makers grads add value from day one and have demonstrated they’re able to quickly progress.
Makers Academy helps us find people who have the aptitude for coding and the attitude for business: we know they already have the basic tools in place and are thoroughly committed to learning how to solve problems with programming.
Makers Academy gives us people who can deliver valuable products in a short time, using agile methods:
exactly what we're looking for.
Makers Academy graduates develop more in a year than anyone else we hire -
they would be our first choice for juniors.
* This is an introductory price for our Beta launch, only available for for companies with fewer than 50 employees. You'll pay once we're happy with your job advert, for as many roles as you'd like to hire. Your ad will appear for 6 weeks. Price excludes VAT.
You'll have access to the same people as any other company via the platform. The main difference being that larger companies benefit from us doing a lot of upfront work for them and ensuring they get the right candidates.
Our software developers are mostly in London and Manchester, with many in other UK cities and parts of Europe and USA. However, we’re growing fast and would love to chat about your location.
