Boost your team’s capability with expert-trained Academy Data Engineers

The Problem

You need skilled Engineers to ensure the success of your Data project, but they’re hard to come by in the UK. The skilled worker shortage is slowing down the capability of businesses to innovate in the areas of Cloud and Data. Finding and training people can be a long and costly process, while managing offshore data teams can be challenging to integrate with local operations.

On top of this, many enterprises don’t expect graduates to be prepared to add any value to their teams in the first six months of their tenure.

The Solution: Data academy engineers

a strong foundation

14 weeks of initial training with our instructors and custom e-learning platform, giving insight into each learner’s progress.

Advanced Technical Knowledge

Microsoft and Databricks Certified Skills, applied to real-world problems we’ve encountered in over a decade of customer engagements.

enterprise readiness

Soft Skills sessions delivered by our in-house games master grow the skills and confidence needed for junior Engineers to hit the ground running.

dedicated uk resources

On completion of training, Academy Engineers are committed to your defined data transformation project.

ongoing mentorship

Academy Engineers keep one foot in the Elastacloud team for round-the-clock access to expert support throughout their tenure.

The Elastacloud Way

We’ve been showcasing our pioneering skill in the world of Data Engineering for over 10 years, so we know it takes more than technological know-how to make a truly talented, dynamic team member.

We immerse graduates into learning for both Azure and Data Platform for three months of intense, hands-on activities that include real-world problem-solving, preparing them for life as an Engineer. Additionally, we put focus on the development of soft skills in weekly sessions to ensure enterprise-readiness.

While our competitors pass the cost of technical development onto their customers and feel that their obligations are complete after they have finished the training course, we continue to build curriculum through our internal communities and knowledgebases.

We ensure that our Academy Engineers have constant access to and support from our global team of Senior Software and Data Engineers throughout their 2 year client-side engagement.

The Elastacloud Way

At Elastacloud we want our technical staff to be pioneers in technology. The Data Academy focuses on improving skills by working with them to develop end-to-end solution on Azure’s Modern Data Platform, giving first-hand experience in each of its technologies.

We teach best practices in both performance and security so that, our Academy Engineers can provide the most efficient and secure solutions to our customers.

While Data Academy’s curriculum is based around immersing participants in the Agile Hack-and-Sprint approach of lean solution development, Elastacloud recognise certification as a professional badge of quality and capability.

Provided as self-study through our partnership with Databricks and Microsoft, our Academy Engineers will have achieved 2 standardised certifications within the first 12 months of their tenure:

Microsoft Certified Associate Azure Data Engineer

Databricks Certified Associate Developer for Apache Spark

Holistic Training for
business-ready engineers

We believe it’s crucial to help mould well-rounded individuals that have a good grasp of problem solving, stakeholder engagement, negotiation, presentation and communication, to ensure a smooth transition into business.

Elastacloud have developed unique methodology through our in-house games master to build resilience and non-technical capability into our Academy Engineers so that they can hit the ground running in complex organisational environments.

Beside the necessary technical skills, we provide our Academy learners with the opportunity to develop a range of soft skills to prepare them for their life at Elastacloud. We aim to celebrate and encourage the humanity behind the data, to produce well-rounded colleagues who’re ready to slot straight into their teams.

The Elastacloud team made the process smooth and pain free with daily communication and clear goals throughout the project. They were always open to questions, always providing answers to problems, and often going above and beyond to keep within the sprint deadlines.

Throughout the entire process, they detailed all builds and code, using the development as a collaborative educational tool to train our staff. During the development and beyond they’ve been on hand to help us understand and take ownership of the complex data pipelines, the custom-built software, and the new products.
