Moniepoint Inc. and NITHub Unilag have announced the opening of applications for the second cohort of the HatchDev program aimed at nurturing the next generation of market-ready software engineers in Nigeria.

The nine-month specialized training program follows a strict recruitment policy and aspires to annually produce 300 junior software engineers, 100 intelligent systems developers, and 100 IoT/embedded systems engineers.

According to a statement from Moniepoint, the training would help to bridge the skilled tech talent gap in Nigeria and support the Ministry of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy’s goal of creating two million digital jobs in the country.

It added that the trainees would be taken through Front-end, Back-end, Mobile App Development, UI/UX Design, Data Science, and Embedded Systems/IoT and upon completion of the course, are readily absorbed into a market eager for their expertise. The program, which began in October 2022, is said to have successfully trained and placed professionals in the industry.

The company added that the transformative learning experience provides six months of hands-on training where participants take a deep dive into the world of full-stack development from the fundamentals to advanced techniques, and they will gain a solid understanding of the tools and technologies that power the web.

Participants will also experience an immersive 3-month internship where their newfound skills can be deployed in a real-world setting, gain invaluable practical experience, collaborate with industry experts, and build a network that will open doors for their future careers.
