What is a day like for a Junior Developer?
Your first day and even a few weeks will be dedicated to onboarding, learning the tools we use, processes we follow, company history, and culture. You will set up your workspace and workstation and equip it with the necessary apps.
Once that is done, you will have your Education tasks, where you start to use learned tools. Usually, tasks are a small part of a real project that you will perform under the guidance and supervision of a mentor. We do expect commitment to quality! Also, for every new colleague to dedicate themselves to learn how to create quality work. Scandiweb welcomes aspiring developers with little experience, ambition to grow, and will to excel.
Afterward, you will have more and more independence in figuring out your way of coding and achieving solutions, getting more complex tasks, helping others, and making steady steps to become a full-stack Software Engineer!
What do we expect from a Junior Developer Trainee?
The title says it all - we expect you to be a real Junior who is eager to absorb information and advice from mentors and senior colleagues as a sponge, break things, try again, break and try again until you build a stable framework of knowledge around the things you are doing.
But to join successfully, one is expected to have basic knowledge and skill of PHP, HTML, CSS, jQuery, and MySQL. Either you've learned that in the University, during late nights on YouTube watching tutorials, or just learned your way around the code. From time to time, quality assurance testing will also be part of your work in the projects you are trusted to maintain. We don't expect WORK experience, but starting knowledge is required.
The second part, being a Trainee - do not expect to start work in the first days or weeks. You will train, learn, and get feedback and support. Training will stay with you permanently while you are at Scandiweb - we have a continuous training program, so there are small bits of education every week and month. We help everybody to build a rich and robust software engineering competency framework!
With time, each developer requires to become full-stack. Most of our projects are based on Magento, but there can be exceptions of Shopify, Laravel, or others, but for that, we do have supporting mentors. Just be ready to grow a 360 skill-set of eCommerce development!
Do take it into account - if you are joining Scandiweb remotely, you will need to have your own hardware setup. After the probation period, a hardware upgrade can be agreed upon.
