You will start your career with us by enjoying an intensive bootcamp under the guidance of our senior developers. In parallel to the bootcamp, you will already start working directly on key features of our product. You will receive ample coaching and our experienced developers are eager to answer your questions and help you improve. Like this, you will quickly expand your Ruby skills, deepen your knowledge of databases, infrastructure, testing, architecture, or other topics you’re most interested in.
Expercast is a funded education startup that is setting out to dramatically accelerate the rate of human learning — not by 10% or even 100%, but by up to 10,000% (the knowledge equivalent of one entire book per day).
The secret to getting there is to help people make maximally productive use of their downtime — i.e., when they are commuting, exercising, doing housework, etc.
Expercast (1) finds the all-time greatest content on topics you’d like to learn more about; (2) converts it into audio, so you can listen to it in your downtime; and (3) trains you to grow comfortable with increasingly fast playback speeds.
As we are in private beta, we’ll keep it at this and our CEO is looking forward to telling you more live.
