The team building Acknowledge are involved on a win-win basis.
Newly qualified developers, they are contributing to this around their lives and job hunts. With no money being paid, the deal is that the time they give to the project works for them around other commitments and that they get out more than what they put in.
This includes working as part of a team, practicing a new coding language, sharing interview experiences, learnings and portfolio ideas. This includes dialing up the project itself as a stand out commitment and a USP from other job appliers.
From the 16 developers that have been involved so far, 11 now have, or are shortly beginning, paid jobs. Acknowledge was built through the Covid-19 lockdown. From the toughest of times, the mighty devs are building something beautiful.
