A program designed to allow us to hire people who are wired for collaboration and ingenuity, no matter their background, the apprenticeship curriculum is structured around a matrix of lessons and skills we’ve identified as integral to a successful software career. Apprentices are hired in small groups to help foster strong interpersonal connections, and participants gain a holistic understanding of the delivery process through self-study, through small team projects, and by joining larger client teams.
We look for people who are driven by the desire to learn, grow, contribute, and evolve, and who are collaborative and team-oriented. Our tradition of hiring talented people regardless of their background, experience, or education, then fueling individual passions to spur personal and team growth has proven to be a game-changer for us, and for our clients.
Software’s fractal nature means every application can be both challenging and rewarding — and there’s always more to learn, improve, and expand. Through formalized guilds, our developers and designers share the knowledge they gain as they rotate through dozens of projects, each with unique challenges in technical stack, delivery process, and communication channels.
And we know that our best innovations come from meeting challenges and creating long-lasting value together. Since it was introduced in 2014, the 8th Light Employee Ownership Program has seen more than 40% of employees also become owners. So yes, we take collective pride in our company, because we’ve all helped build it.
