What is the Crema Apprenticeship Program?

The Crema Apprenticeship is a 6-month mentoring program designed to equip technology professionals in the software development and design fields. Crema believes that autonomy, mastery, and purpose are the 3 key motivators for good employees to produce good work. Our goal with the apprenticeship is to provide an environment where future tech and design leaders can not only hone their craft, but learn what it means to consistently deliver a job well done.

Individuals selected for the apprenticeship program will serve within their chosen craft (programming, design, product management, strategy, and test engineering) for 6 months. During that time, their strengths will be assessed and leveraged for rapid growth in a targeted skillset. This is done through intense engagement in fundamentals, mentor-driven and self-guided learning, internal projects, and participation in actual client work. Crema believes that placing talented individuals who are passionate about learning and growing into an environment dedicated to excellence and constant improvement will yield tomorrow’s tech leaders.

We aim to produce leaders who are humble, confident, and masters of their craft.

Who are we Looking for?

The technology industry provides a lot of options for exciting and rewarding job opportunities. However, the skills needed are specific and require a high level of competency. Our apprenticeship is designed and well-suited for individuals who have started down the development career path AND are hungry to gain the experience necessary to be successful. If you find yourself with the skills, but not the experience, to get a full-time position, a Crema apprenticeship may be an ideal stepping stone for you.

Our ideal apprentice is someone who strives for excellence and will not settle for “good enough”.
We are looking for someone who is able to think creatively and collaborate with others to build the best solution for any given problem.
Successful applicants must demonstrate an insatiable desire to learn, a hunger to contribute, and an aptitude for solving problems quickly and effectively.

If selected, you’ll get the opportunity to jump headfirst into the Crema environment! Crema is a fast-paced work environment seeking talented individuals who crave learning new skills and aren't afraid to tackle big projects. As an apprentice, you will get to interact with every individual on our staff and work on real projects that will greatly expand your skill set. You’ll get the opportunity to learn from our team and see firsthand how a successful company operates. We will also learn from you as you make contributions to our projects, both internally and externally.

What Happens after Graduation?

Our hope is that positions will be available for the apprentices that successfully complete the program. However, employment at Crema after an apprenticeship is not guaranteed. In the event that a position is not open, Crema assists our apprentices in their job search serving as references and making introductions to other technology companies when possible.
