Based on its success at placing its first Dev10 Consultants with clients in the Twin Cities, Genesis10 is planning to expand its new Software Developer Training program to other select cities in the U.S.
Earlier this year, Genesis10, a professional technology services firm providing staffing, workforce optimization and domestic outsourcing solutions, launched Dev10 to build developer workforce capabilities to address the skills shortage which is intensifying due to immigration reform.
The Dev10 program strategically hires technology-minded consultants and trains them in Java and Python programming, which are foundational competencies key to supporting emerging technologies such as Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and others.
“Our first Dev10 Consultants graduated in June trained in the skills our clients find most challenging to recruit in today’s job market,” said Tara Wyborny, Director Talent Programs for Genesis10. “We are excited about the success of the program. Our Consultants started to receive job offers even before they completed the program.”
Presented to clients as a local alternative to costly senior developers or offshore resources, Dev10 Consultants now are working as Front-End Web Developers, Full Stack Java Developers and in Application Support within the Financial Services, Manufacturing and Retail industries.
