Xccelerated is a joint initiative between Xebia and GoDataDriven, accelerating careers and skills of young professionals. Through our 13-month program, we train highly-skilled (big) data professionals with 1 to 3 years of work experience to become authorities in their fields and connect them to their next employer. Think about Heineken, KLM, ING, Nuon or Schiphol Group. Pretty cool, isn’t it?
Our advanced training program develops each person’s technical and personal competencies, starting with a full-month bootcamp (hands-on training) followed by the opportunity to work directly on real-world big data and data science challenges. 4 days a week at our partners, 1-day extra training and project support from our technical leads. After one year, Xccelerators have the opportunity to transfer to the partner organization directly without any strings attached.
Eliminating the shortage of highly skilled data scientists, data engineers & cloud developers
