LiveChat Junior Academy #1:
Your first integration

We were all Juniors!

About

Our LiveChat Junior Academy is a series of tech challenges for beginners that combines competition and recruitment purpose. During each of events, we would like to choose one winner and offer a six-month, full-time and paid Junior position in LiveChat Academy program. After that trial period, we have a plan to summarise your efforts and progress, then decide together about permanent cooperation.

We are looking for team players who are not afraid of new challenges and competition. You don’t need to have any experience – we count on your self-motivation, communication skills, and analytical mind.

The_idea_behind

Even though we’ve gained tons of knowledge and experience, the motto: “Every day brings me the chance to learn something new” is still close to our hearts! That’s why we decided to become mentors and give others the possibility to develop their skills, under our wings. We’d love to share our stories and best practices with Juniors that want to start their new professional adventures. And, happily, learn from each other on a daily basis.

LiveChat is not only the company where you can find product experts but also tech enthusiasts who feel the need to pass their expertise to others. Now, with 100 people on board, we are more than ready to welcome passionate Juniors and build our future together.

Each of events will have different formula, focus on various technologies and topics. Our plan is to start with the hackathon and then, switch to workshops. During our seven-hour challenges, you will get the chance to meet our experienced teammates, face the task or take a part in workshop and provide a creative solution. And all that in LiveChat workplace: our natural environment.

1:1 Feedback Session. The Feedback Session will take place during the next day, after the finished event. We are going to provide feedback to everyone, whether it is positive or negative. Also, during that day, we are going to organise 1:1 recruitment meetings with best participants of the event.
