Pro Athlete CREATE Program

2019-05-22.png

At Pro Athlete, we have a team of world-class developers that help move us forward by continually completing projects for our customers and employees. As we continue to grow, we have decided to try a new way of scaling up when extra help is needed. The CREATE program was developed to utilize local talent and create a pool of skilled developers to partner with when we have large projects or need more bandwidth. Below is a full rundown of the program.

What is the program?

The Pro Athlete CREATE Program is a new initiative to find a pipeline of local, skilled developers to help us scale up during busy times, large projects, or special circumstances. We want to leverage the professionals in our area and provide an opportunity for people to make extra money with their skill set while being part of a great team, when needed.

The process is simple: After submitting the initial information, those who make it to the next step will come in to meet the team and show off their skills with various tests and/or projects. If you make the cut, you will become part of our pool of talent that we will call on if and when we need contractors to help us. There is no obligation and you can be removed from the group at any time if you choose. You set your own hours and any work will be done remotely, with the option to come in and work with the team one day per week. The better you are, the more opportunities you will get.

Pay will be based on skill and experience. There are no guarantees of hours or opportunities.

What is the workflow of projects like for a contractor?

We use a hybrid agile/scrum methodology to provide flexibility and predictability. Monthly sprints are used for our development cycle. As contractors complete work, a Git pull request is utilized to let our team know changes are ready. We will review the work and respond with any requested changes before merging the code.

What if I no longer want to be a part of the program?

No problem; just let us know and we will remove you from our resource pool.
