Development Apprenticeship Program
How can I apply for the development apprenticeship program?
Applications for The Portal development program are open year-round! Head to our submission form.
After we receive your application, we'll reach out to you. Be prepared for a technical assessment with coding tasks.
If you pass the interview, you'll be accepted into our training cohort.
Any student currently enrolled in college can apply, but we recommend that students:
- Have 3rd year standing, or;
- Have completed a two-year community college program or;
- Have otherwise taken courses that would provide a strong background in computer science
- Have proven leadership and collaboration skills
Anywhere between 10-20 hours per week.
Once we’ve built a suitable cohort of applicants, we schedule training as a group, usually toward the beginning or end of a quarter. We do our best to build the training around everyone’s schedules. Training usually ranges from 8 – 10 hours a week in our Irvine office, though you should expect to work on assignments outside of training times.
