Bringing diversity and antiracism to emerging technology
Mindweaver is looking for talented software developers with a passion for data and tech who are interested in becoming data engineers.
At Mindweaver it is our mission to bring diversity and antiracism to the world of emerging technology. We support organisations to transform themselves and the way they operate to build a future in which talented people from diverse backgrounds can thrive and participate in shaping a future driven by technology.
15% of the UK tech sector is “BAME”. Only 3% of the tech sector is Black. Recent research from BCS found that women make up around 17% of the UK’s tech sector, while those from a Black, African, Caribbean or Black British background make up only 2%. We’ve got to change that!
We work with businesses that are on the front line of the 4th industrial revolution to help them take action to improve the representation, inclusion, and promotion of Black Asian and Minority Ethnic employees – particularly Black technologists where the underrepresentation levels are staggering.
One of the ways that we do this is by working with folks from diverse backgrounds, building upon their skills, and helping them to develop new ones and move into emerging technology roles.
How does it work?
It all begins with an intensive training 12 week programme focused on an emerging technology discipline. You will be trained, supported, and developed by expert trainers and industry professionals; and a support team whose mission is to help you succeed. After the training is complete you will join one of our client partners for a 12 month period putting everything you have learned into practice before transitioning to them on a permanent basis.
During this 12 month period of embedding, you will be supported, developed, upskilled, and trained in partnership with our client ready for this transition.
