The paid apprenticeship lasts 3 months. During the 3 months, you work alongside designers and developers at thoughtbot on real projects, and are assigned a Mentor who is your primary instructor. You also work on special projects designed to give you additional time and training in the areas you most need. Each month, you move to another mentor and different team. This rotation enhances the learning process by exposing you to new projects and new people, but also by allowing you to reapply what you’ve learned in a new context. In the final month, if things have gone well, you are promoted to a full designer or developer at thoughtbot. Or we’ll connect you with other great potential employers.
