Are you an experienced full-stack software developer with solid programming skills and strong problem-solving abilities? Are you passionate about developing and improving tech solutions while utilizing cutting edge technologies? Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit, want to take ownership of your own creations and are looking to build your next tech venture from scratch? You’ve come to the right place!

For our upcoming cohort in March 2024, we are looking for Full Stack Developers who want to build the next disruptive tech venture from scratch!

  • embody exceptional interpersonal & collaboration skills with demonstrated ability to use diplomacy & communication to influence outcomes
  • have experience leading a team of developers or technical product managers and maintaining an organized oversight of specific product delivery schedules
  • might have an idea (optional) that will solve a problem that you’re passionate about, but you do not want to do it on your own. You understand that you need co-pilots who share your vision and values
  • will play an instrumental role as a co-founder/CTO
