The Tech Industry needs you
The shortage of tech talent is not a new problem. Most people know there is a high demand for Engineers and other technical roles, but with the industry’s tremendous growth, non-technical roles are also at their peak. It’s a market that, while it offers great growth opportunities and benefits, is also becoming more and more competitive.
That’s why, unlike other similar programs in the market, Nexton Academy offers a non-technical training designed for those who would love to work in the Tech Industry. We will also be offering full-time paid internships in USD to the most exceptional participants at the end of the program.
In this program you will:
• Get an introduction to the IT World & start-ups • Develop specific tools and knowledge to succeed in IT • Get the chance to land a full-time paid internship at Nexton
To participate in the program, you need:
• Equipment: A computer with stable internet connection • Time commitment: 5 hours per week during January 2022 • The desire to learn and grow!
We’re a successful team innovating in the Recruiting industry and creating the future of remote work. At Nexton we connect US companies with the best engineers in Latin America through our talent network.
Do I need to know how to code or have some specific knowledge?
No prior knowledge is needed. What matters most is commitment, a great attitude and the desire to work as a team.
What about the work experience requirement?
Anyone with at least 2 years of work experience can apply. Students are allowed as long as they meet this requirement. We’ll consider people from all backgrounds, including Tourism, Translators, HR, Business Administration, Marketing, Sales and Customer Support.

An advanced level of each language is required. You should feel very comfortable both in verbal and written form, since you’ll be interacting with a diverse and multicultural team.
