How We Support Your Learning
Every developer is assigned a Software Developer Lead as a coach. Think of this coach as more of a mentor than a manager. You meet weekly to focus on your technical and career development. This coaching isn’t about performance management. It’s about how we can support your growth.
Annual Education Budget
Every year you receive $3,000 to spend on career development. Some recent education budget purchases include online courses in software design & architecture specialization, tickets to a DevOps conference, leadership development training courses, and many new books for our library.
Our growing library is home to hundreds of books on design, development, data science, and more. Want a book? We’ll order it for you. This allows us to host book clubs on topics like Domain Driven Design, or advanced refactoring methods and architecture.
We hold Hack Days every six weeks, where the whole company has the freedom to tinker and learn about new technology. All team members regularly host Lunch n’ Learn talks on topics like serverless deployment of machine learning models, introduction to data science, retail industry overviews, and fun workshops like Spanish 101.
Developer Growth Tracks
Leveling up doesn’t necessarily mean moving into management.
During your interview process, we work with you to understand your skill set and where you want to grow. We then set a plan to advance you into the type of work you are most interested in doing. There are many opportunities for to have a discussion on your preferred career path throughout your time at Nulogy.

This is a great opportunity for those who are fresh out of school or a bootcamp and are looking for technical mentorship in their very first software development position.
