In order to provide the best training to our team and the wider developer community, we run an open event called Mage Titans which brings together developers from all over the world for a day of talks and workshops. Mage Titans is currently running in five different countries and is the highlight of the year for many veteran developers.

Christopher Wilson, 2018

"Having graduated from the University of Manchester with a degree in Mechatronic Engineering and spending the summer volunteering at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I was really looking forward to starting something new with the Space 48 graduate scheme. Over three months the training covered various aspects of ecommerce software development, providing lots of opportunities to apply my own knowledge whilst always making it easy to ask any questions I had.

Once the scheme had completed we started work on live projects straight away, rapidly improving web development skills whilst still retaining the support required to ask any questions. I really enjoy working with a great group of people in a role I really enjoy!"

Ansoumane Camara, 2018

"After university I was looking for a company that would provide me with a platform to establish my zeal and have a career growth, but I found even better at Space48. The graduate scheme here is perfect for anyone starting a career in web development. The training provided on the first 3 months covers all the aspects of programming and involves a lot of practice.

In addition you have the opportunity to use your imagination to apply the gained knowledge and complete tasks similar to real projects' ones. The scheme provides after the training period continuous support while working on live projects to help you adapt and develop your skills. Space48's graduate scheme was the best choice for my career."
