Web Developer University - Fall 2015

What You Offer

Markit Boulder has begun accepting applications for the fall Web Developer University 2015. At Markit On Demand, this unique development paid training program provides a launching point for associate level web development candidates.

What is Developer University?

Markit On Demand designs, builds, and hosts web sites and applications for many of the largest banks, brokerage houses, and media outlets in the world. We create richly interactive sites using C#, Javascript, CSS, and HTML. We’ve been building “Ajax” based apps since it was just a cleaning product, are continually pushing the browser as an application platform, and are passionate about creating sites that are highly performant during periods of huge traffic.

We need help, and that’s where you come in. Markit On Demand is hosting a web developer training program. You get to learn how to build complex web applications; we get to grow our development team.

You will be paid for your time in the program. It’s a four week engagement (9-5, M-F), starting in October, 2015. Successful candidates will be offered a full time, salaried position with benefits.

We’re looking for people with experience writing code (regardless of language or platform) who want to expand their skills to include web technologies. The program consists of lectures from members of the MOD development team focusing on client and server side technologies, as well as our own libraries and frameworks, and a lot of hands on lab time.

Experience Requirements:

• 1 – 2 years experience as a student, intern or employee in an academic, creative or professional environment.
• Proficient in at least one programming language, JavaScript or C# preferred (HTML and CSS are quite useful, but they’re not programming languages).
• Working knowledge of HTML and CSS

Candidates must be eligible to work in the US. Candidates outside of CO must be able to relocate independently by the program start date. Candidates must be able to work full time (40 hours per week) during the program and interested in full time employment following the session close.
