Based in the SmartBear Wroclaw, Poland office, the 12-week paid program starts February 6, 2023 and includes a combination of in-classroom, online, and practical learning designed for career progression in software development at SmartBear.

"The software industry is growing exponentially, and knowledgeable developers are in high demand," said Dan Faulkner, Chief Product Officer at SmartBear.
