Xapo is a fast-growing, global fintech company with a mission to build a safe and global way to use money. We’re a fully distributed team, with 250+ Xapiens working from 50+ countries.
We’re seeking collaborative, proactive problem-solvers to join us for a nine month coding bootcamp focusing on the backend of Xapo and Python development.
At Xapo, we believe that diverse teams are better teams - but there are not enough female developers yet. As a company that invests in potential, we felt compelled to create an opportunity to help women advance in technical careers. We designed the Python Developer Bootcamp as an internship program to introduce budding female developers to development opportunities in financial technology - and prepare them to succeed at Xapo.
Through this internship experience, you’ll grow exponentially as an engineer and develop key skills that you’ll leverage throughout your career. This full-time, paid training program is planned to be remote, meaning you can work from anywhere!
As part of the Python Developer Bootcamp you will:
Learn the inner operations of how a Fintech company works;
Gain hands-on experience in six departments across Xapo (Architecture, DevOps, Business Operations, Risk and Security, Compliance and Platform);
Receive mentorship from experts in their field;
Collaborate with cross-functional teams to bring cutting edge innovation to market;
Engage in consistent, meaningful interaction with senior leadership and mentors.
The ideal candidate will demonstrate curiosity, ownership, and leadership to drive projects independently and impact Xapo. Diligence, perseverance, resilience, and proactiveness are key to succeed in the Python Developer Bootcamp.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive a digital certificate signed by Xapo COO.
Graduates are eligible for full-time roles at Xapo and may receive an offer when their initial contract ends.
