The Facebook engineering bootcamp is a unique new joiner initiation program that the company is very proud about, and well know for. The latest video from Facebook gives more insight into the program shedding light on what it is like to join the company as a new engineer.
A selection of former bootcampers discuss the program, which is a mandatory six week intensive course taken by each and every single new engineer – whether they are a fresh college graduate or director – to bring them up to speed with the company, its code-base, culture and people.
It’s particularly interesting to hear from those that ‘hit the ground running’ and found themselves working to fix problems that affected the social network’s 750 million users right from the get-go.
More details of Facebook’s Engineering Bootcamp can be found on the Facebook page.
Meanwhile, Facebook user engagement is up 31%.
