Agile Jumpstart Training program Hire

Software, mobile apps, IoT, A.i, technology is all around us! Quality of these applications has been a priority for years. With the introduction of Agile working the way Software Quality is approached has been adapted to automate the software tests as much as possible.

The Agile Jumpstart Training Program for Software QA Developers of was started because of the growing need in the market for high-quality Test Automation Engineers. We share all our knowledge, experience and ‘trade secrets’ from with the young potential during our sixteen-week training program. 
Obviously, not just anyone can participate in this program. The demand for engineers with broad technical knowledge and solid people- and communication skills is growing. We only start with carefully selected candidates, those of who we are convinced will go the extra mile. All Jumpstarters recently got their degree in ICT or just made a career switch and finished a development course. The only real requirement is that they should be tech-savy engineers who are eager to make better software.


The all-in-one program

After an in-depth personal and technical screening, we ensure they’ve got what it takes to start the program with one last challenge. Before they can really begin, they must pass the ISTQB® Certified Tester Foundation Level exam after a 3-day training. 
We start the Agile Jumpstart Training Program with intensive training in which you get acquainted with all technical aspects of the job. We make sure that the necessary people- and communication skills aren’t left out either. 
During five weeks, they are immersed in theory and learn to convert it into a project assignment that is as realistic as possible. 
The theory is the theory, but applying it is even more critical. After those five weeks of theory, the focus shifts to the application phase. During those eleven weeks, they work on a project for one of our customers. In this on-the-job learning track, guides them to ensure that the onboarding runs as smoothly as possible. For example, we provide extra training on one hand and extra coaching on the other.
