It is the third year running that Upstream has offered the ‘Start at Upstream’ program. In 2019, eleven software engineers took part, and seven were hired by the company after doing their 12-month internship. A further ten software engineers have already completed their training as part of the 2020 program and are due to complete their internships in November 2022.
Timos Polimitisa Software Engineer at Upstream who started off as a trainee in the 2019 program said: “The initial training at ‘Start at Upstream’ was like being back at university but on steroids. Never before have I learned so much in such a short time. I don’t think there’s a similar graduate program out there. People would pay a lot for such a kind of training!”
