Xccelerated locates, connects, trains, and accelerates highly-skilled data professionals to become authorities in their fields. Our advanced training program develops each person’s pragmatic and business competencies by providing the opportunity to work directly on real-world big data and data science challenges. After an intensive boot camp, our fellows apply their talent and skills directly to a partner project full-time, creating business value for our clients. After one year, all fellows have the opportunity to transfer to the partner organization directly, without any recruitment fee. We call this unique approach to staffing deta-flex – because flexibility means more motivation, and motivated people deliver the best results. Xccelerated is a joint initiative between Xebia and GoDataDriven.

Your First Year

You will start the first month with an immersive, full-time, bootcamp. After the first month, you are ready to work directly on a client project. During this time, you will come back to the Xccelerated offiice every week for project guidance and extra training on different subjects, both in data science/ data engineering and in soft-skills. After twelve months you can permanently join the client’s team and continue your career there.
