Beat the career gap & join back the workforce as an SDET

In 2011 my wife gained a husband and lost two things.

Financial Independence.

Sense of Identity.

Like thousands of newly married wives, she gave up a fledgling career in India to become a housewife in the US.

It wasn't until 2015 she got her work permit and started working. Until then the damage was done. Suicidal thoughts, Depression, Low confidence, Fear of starting from scratch.

Her story is no different from the hundreds of people who join my course and go on to get jobs. The effort to combat self doubt is almost 10x of the effort to acquire the skills.

When you enroll with us, you don't join a training program, you join a company and learn on the job. You will be working on large scale implementation projects with hundreds of other team members often from other companies. We also don’t wait till the end of the program to begin the projects. You will start working 2 weeks into the training and your project work and training will continue in parallel. At around the 1 month mark your interview preparation process will begin . Mock interviews, Confidence building exercises get you ready for the time when you will begin to apply to jobs. Our alumni hire from us and we also refer your resume to top companies in our network. Welcome to a wild and exciting ride where the problem will quickly change from not getting interview calls to figuring out which company to join from multiple offers in hand.

Cohort-based Courses

  • Active Learning, not Passive Watching

    We put you in live projects two weeks into the training. This develops the executive function of problem solving really quickly. In real time projects solving problems matters more than technical skills.

  • Learn with a Cohort of Peers

    You will be grouped in small groups to work in DevOps projects just like Amazon, Facebook, or Google Projects.

  • Accountability and Feedback

    You will attend scrum calls and update on your project status on daily basis.

  • Additional Benefits

    Hear from industry experts and mentors who will take your classes on a regular basis.

If you think all that needs to cover your employment gap is learning a new technology then you can go for online tutorials but, if you think along with technology you also need to learn how to face day to day challenges of a corporate world that involves collaborative skills, tackle pressure situations, presentation skills ( written, spoken) etc. then you should start your journey at NumpyNinja right away. My journey at NumpyNinja has given me incredible confidence that I landed in my dream job today. In this community you will meet people sailing in the same boat with similar experiences and we push each other’s back in reaching our goal. Some of the key highlights of NumpyNinja: -You will officially become a tech blogger and reap credits for it. -Hackathons, that will reveal your true power. -Teach / give presentations that gives you an instant boost. -Working on projects gives you a similar experience of the real world where you face higher challenges that will make you ready for your next job. Best part of Tim (your new Mentor Supra”Tim” Dasgupta) is that he first accepts what you are and encourages you in building your future. The support you get from him in any situation is commendable. He is up with/for new ideas and it’s a pleasure working with him. He’s the master of resume crafting who doesn’t get satisfied till we reach our best. His recommendations in applying to “Right” jobs are invaluable which have done the real magic in my journey. Had it not been Tim I wouldn’t have made it!

Pradeepa Gollapalli
Working in T-Mobile inspite of a 9.5yr gap

After a long career break of 8 years, I was less confident to even apply for a job. I was taking some online courses and trying to upskill myself. That’s when I joined NumpyNinja. I am so happy about my decision. Tim is an amazing mentor who can really understand you and help you craft yourself ready for the job market. I am so thankful to NumpyNinja for helping me boost my confidence and providing me hands-on experience to fill the gap in my career. The biggest advantage here is, we are not just learning a skill rather we work on skills which makes a big difference. I started working with a very supportive team of people with very adverse skills. They are always there, when you need help. Live classes, Hackathons, Discussions, Presentations, Projects, Resume crafting and a great Mentor. You will get everything that is needed for the industry. I am able to land into my dream job within days once I started interviewing. Thanks to ‘Tim’ and the team!
