In order to give the young and talented members of our community a chance to improve themselves and become successful future developers, designers, and project managers, we decided to organize Intern Bootcamps.
With these events, our objective is not to find an intern to run the errands of the office, bring us coffee, or make some photocopies. Our primary purpose is to discover brilliant minds willing to take the wheel by directly getting involved in our projects rather than just observing. At these events, we’re constantly on the lookout for curious and highly-skilled individuals who have the potential to turn their internship into a long-term relationship with us as teammates.
As the first of its kind, this Intern Bootcamp had 50 talented attendees carefully selected out of more than 250 applicants. The event consisted of four workshops specifically designed according to the particular branches of the attendees. And throughout the day, our team guided and assisted our potential interns as they tackled challenging tasks. After careful observation, we finally found the perfect fit to come and join us at our headquarters.
After having to stay apart for almost two years due to the pandemic, we knew that our following team event had to be something big! So, we decided to gather the whole team and go on a three-day-long summer retreat in beautiful Marmaris. Those three days not only felt like a rejuvenating detox but also a much-needed catch-up for all of our teammates, many of whom work remotely from various cities away from each other. Needless to say, it surely was a reunion to remember!
After an unfortunately lengthy pause due to the pandemic, we finally organized our long-awaited 8th Intern Bootcamp. It didn’t last long until we realized how much we missed meeting the young and talented people of our community and working with them side by side on various projects to discover the brilliant new minds to join the Atolye15 Team.The event took place at İzmir Originn with the participation of 50 aspiring developers, UI/UX designers, and project managers. As always, we started off by informing our future interns more about our team as well as the frontend, backend, design, and PM projects they would work on at the Bootcamp.
Winter Retreat‘22 is proof that the Atolye15 Team is capable of having fun anytime and everywhere no matter how harsh the weather conditions may be! If we put our minds to bringing the heat, even heavy snow can’t get in the way. And that’s exactly what we did!
At our 7th Intern Bootcamp, we got together with the young talents of our community once again and had a day full of workshops where we shared our years’ worth of know-how, helped our future interns tackle various tasks, and got the chance to meet these aspiring developers, designers, and project managers on a more personal level. With more than 400 applications received, this year’s Bootcamp drew great interest within our ecosystem. However, we could only narrow it down to 40 to join us at this event. No matter how much we’d like to meet everyone, we only want to have a small circle of candidates we’re capable of managing.
