The Program

HackYourFuture trains refugees and other disadvantaged groups with limited access to education and the labor market to become web developers, software testers and SalesForce developers through a 7-month program. After the education track, graduates start their careers through a 3-6 month internship at one of our partner companies.

Let’s make a positive impact together!

Five years ago HackYourFuture was founded to tackle the challenging un(der)employment of newcomers while addressing the ever-growing demand for tech talent. Since then, we have noticed that a lot of companies in tech like to talk about diversity and inclusion, plan events and give speeches. While that’s a start, we believe that for real change, more action is needed. If you want to make sure no talent goes to waste, join us.

Frequently Asked Questions

Based on your needs we will select one or more CVs. You will decide which candidates you want to interview, both testing soft skills and technical skills. If you are interested to hire one or more of our students, you can make an offer for an internship or entry-level job.
Most of our students are on welfare. In most municipalities any remuneration will be deducted from their welfare benefits (‘uitkering’). It is advised to provide travel compensation if the graduate has to travel to work. Of course, once you decide to offer a (half-)year contract they will receive a salary and get out of the uitkering.
Definitely not. Our curriculum focuses on fullstack JavaScript. We also offer a specialised module for students interested in software testing (QA engineering). But the main skills our students hold are grit and drive. This is why many of them end up working as full stack devs, backend developers, software testers, SalesForce developers and so on.
Because of our reputation and network we receive over 200 applications for every class. We select around 12-15 people. After 7 months of intense studying, between 8 and 10 individuals manage to graduate.
Since our students are mostly junior developers it helps to have some form of mentorship and guidance in place. Regular check-ins and evaluations also help. We can advise you on how to do this effectively, based on our experience working with 60+ companies.
We usually have talent available and ready to start an internship or a job. Classes graduate every 2 months.
Definitely! This will give you a better understanding of the technical level and soft skills of our students. Please contact us to schedule a visit.
