SIGN UP FOR matchmaking


Definitely! As part of our challenge, you will be learning the basics of Microsoft Azure. We recommend planning in around one day to finish the challenge if you have no prior experience with Microsoft Azure.

Unfortunately, our services are only available for Finnish residents with a right to work in Finland. Since part of the training will be in person, you also need to be able to travel to our office in Helsinki.

This is a full-time training, Monday to Friday from 9 to 16. You need to be able to commit to the full training, so if you have a full-time job during the same hours, you are not able to join the training.

When you apply to the training, we will verify that you are eligible to join us. If you are eligible, you will gain access to the challenge. Please reserve around 3.5 hours to finish the challenge.

The challenge takes around 3,5 hours to finish if you have no prior knowledge of Microsoft Azure. However, if you have some background in cloud computing, you might get through it faster.

Congratulations! We will let you know by the 23rd of March if you are a fit for our training! Make sure to check your email.
