Over the last 90 days, we’ve celebrated with 25 graduates who have already been part of successful projects for clients, with more on their way
What is the UV UniVersity?
We train the next generation of awesome software developers.
Here at United Virtualities, we don’t just do high-quality software development, but we also focus on the future — of both the software development industry and of UV, of course. And we believe that having a training ground to help strengthen the skillset of developers benefits us all, from the developers and our teams to our clients.
How does the UV UniVersity work?
Through both study and work-study at UV.
The heart of our educational strategy is the synthesis of study & practice. While learning the key concepts of software development and professionality from the ground up, students not only study, but they get test projects and real-world training.
What technologies do you use?
How does it fit with the culture of UV?
We cultivate a culture of learning, professionality, and transparency.
Founded in 2009 in New York by three digital data nerds, today UV now has over 100 awesome employees in four offices across the globe. We learn and strengthen from each project, knowing that education is a fuel for growth. That’s why UV UniVersity teaches and inspires the developers of today and tomorrow.
Featured Student: Elias Ibarra
In weeks, Elias went from starting the course to building and releasing his own Chrome extension!
Elias Ibarra is a great example of one of our students. Eager and excited from day one (in addition to his studies), just a few weeks into the course, we asked him to build a Chrome extension to identify images on web pages that were missing an ‘alt’ tag and… voila, within a few weeks, it was submitted to the Chrome store and is now available to use.
This story is amazing on its own, but we want to share some behind-the-scenes info: MATIH: the Missing Alt-Tag Image Highlighter is the extension that helped us improve the SEO of… our own website! That’s why MATIH will be integrated into our SFCC testing suite, in order to flag content administration gaps around SEO and improve our clients’ sites.
Who is eligible and can I apply?
Anyone interested and eager who lives in Mexico.
The UV UniVersity is currently situated only in Mexico, but UV has plans to expand it to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and, if all goes according to plan, all across Latin America.
How much does it cost?
It’s free, unlike most “bootcamps.”
There is no cost to enrolling. That’s right! Instead of paying bootcamp prices, all students are paid full-time wages for three months. We pay you to learn. That’s how important the learning process is for us. And if things go well and you graduate, you’ll be offered a job here at UV.
Where is it located?
Away from the big cities.
Our office is located far from the megalopolis of Mexico City. We intentionally chose a smaller area to contribute jobs and opportunities to the local economy, where UV now has a large presence. We support people locally, to help them to grow in their own city.
