Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

You've got some questions. We've got some answers

Software is a growing industry that´s set to continue expanding quickly in the coming years. Software developers are in high demand, enjoy fantastic career prospects and get to be part of exciting challenges and often are able to work flexibly.

We’re all software enthusiasts at heart. We follow high-quality standards and think about how we can implement them in the process of developing software (programming) before we start to create it (coding).

Mindera Code Academy programmes teach you how to code while thinking like a programmer. This gives you the skills you need to become a software developer.

Software development is a trade anyone with an aptitude for can learn, just like any other vocation. And while software development is perceived as a career for younger generations, you can learn to code at any time — whether you’re 10 or 70.

The bottom line is that if you’re interested in getting new skills, possess a keen attention to detail, and like to think through complex problems then you can learn to code. And we want to teach you!

Our teachers develop software every day. They live and breathe technology, and they’re enthusiastic about sharing that passion.

Our standards are high because the software we build requires expertise at every level. We use the latest technology and implement the best engineering practices in our work.

This is essential because our clients come from a wide range of industries, so our engineers need to have a broad skill set. We want to teach you how to be a software expert. We’ll do this by teaching you how to code, develop, and continuously deliver quality software — by sharing with you our mindset!

We’re looking for highly driven people with a thirst for knowledge and a commitment to changing their lives. We’re seeking people who aren’t afraid to work hard to achieve their goals.

If you are curious about whether this is for you, please contact us!

We hope so! While graduates from the Mindera Education programmes aren’t promised a job at Mindera, upon graduation, you’ll have the opportunity to interview for open roles with senior developers who already know your work.
