General Questions

Twice a year. We start a program in February and October.

How to apply

We are looking for women with a passion for tech but a technical background is NO MUST to get started with our Alyx Program. We look for affinity for tech and this is as simple as being good in learning a language, so already being bilingual is great starting point. If you already did some coding in the past - great - our program is for all levels of experience.

Lots of fun. We will give you an assignment and watch you do it. We do not assess your technical skills but rather your approach, way of thinking and ability to learn.

Absolutely.

The Alyx Program

A full stack developer is a woman that knows front end and back end development. Front end revolves around web development and the visual elements that a user will interact with on a website or app. Back end development focuses on what the user won’t see, the software behind it. Learn how to develop the user interface of a website through the use of HTML, CSS and JavaScript, Angular, and UX/UI Design. And learn how software works in the back on the server side through using Java, C# or PHP.

An IT Infrastructure professional is a woman that knows about servers, networks, databases, and cloud engineering. Like all computer applications, PHP and Java must run on a server (like Microsoft, Linux). In the IT Infrastructure Bootcamp, you learn how to set up and configure those servers and ensure that they end up working effectively and efficiently when any network routes are created. You also learn about cloud engineering. Clouds are vital for having an externally managed server environment, serving web applications and websites. External database storage gathers all information and helps everything run smoothly.

We have three office days and two work from home days. You are expected to join us at our Alyx HQ on the office days.

Yes. Our talents receive a monthly 13% pay gap bonus which is put into our Alyx Fund. The fund is made available to our talents for ongoing education and training once she leaves Alyx to work for your partner company.
