About the job

Integrating juniors into our environment is no easy thing, but it is extremely important to us. Each Junior Cloud Builder starts their adventure with us by joining a training center for four months. During this time, you will follow a skill improvement program covering topics like agility, the cloud, development practices and teamwork.

A team of mentors will be there to train you in the use of our stack and practices. You will work on several topics and projects for Scaleway, via the “agency”, an internal company manned by our juniors, which will help you discover our IT service as a team and to make your first commits in a secure environment.
