Training process

Leveling stage:

As mentioned in another article, we developed the Mind University unit, in this unit a diagnostic evaluation is applied for all new admission profiles. Based on the areas of opportunity found, training activities are assigned for a period of time, at this stage they work individually for the most part, as it tends to be very technical.

Entry stage:

At the end of the training at Mind University, the results obtained are presented and then we look for the team that better fits the candidate’s abilities within the Mind Teams projects division. There, they can continue developing their talent in a full software development team methodology.

Development stage:

The trainee continues to develop his/her technical skills within the assigned team, but mainly we seek to develop the following points.

  • Teamwork (SCRUM, Code Versioning)
  • Communication
  • Activity estimation
  • Metrics management (KPIs)
  • CI / CD

Closing stage:

During the project’s development, the mind teams coordinators determine which people already meet the characteristics expected by our clients and start with the assignment process. Then, we arrange Interviews with Operations to verify that they are full developed candidates and the assignment to their new team is scheduled.
