A software consultancy is only as good as its consultants, and 8th Light invests heavily in our apprenticeship programme to ensure that ours are the best. Emphasising hands-on experience curated by a working professional, our modern apprenticeship programme trains software crafters to be more than just great developers, they learn the skills required to be effective consultants as well.

One of the key drivers of success in consutling engagements is strong communication. At 8th Light we strive to deliver well crafted software and solutions that provide clients with not just what they want, but also what they need.

Our software crafters have a passion for writing code as an end in itself, and a desire to be lifelong learners who constantly improve their skills. This learning is supported by year round training programmes in both technical and consulting tracks.
