Maven Wave, an Atos company, is introducing its IGNITE development program, providing recent college graduates with a clear, accelerated pathway to becoming a certified cloud consultant. Jointly run by Atos, Atos Syntel, and Maven Wave, who are a part of the same global IT services group, IGNITE offers entry-level STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) majors the opportunity for a 12-month training program resulting in three Google Cloud certifications and a full-time position with the company. Through IGNITE, recent graduates will represent about 30% of new hires for the company over the next few months.
“We’re humbled by the opportunity to offer employment to recent graduates who are the future of our industry. The Analysts we have hired over the years have proven themselves time and time again to be remarkable additions to the Maven Wave team,” said Amber Bouchard, Talent Acquisition Director for Maven Wave. “IGNITE allows us to create jobs for next-generation talent while embracing the change within the talent market dynamics and build our own cloud-native workforce. We want to encourage recent graduates of all backgrounds, especially women in STEM, to apply for a role in the dynamic, exciting and impactful cloud industry. As we deliver solutions to support the influx in remote work, telehealth, and e-commerce, we’re working to fill the critical roles that will help us continue to do so.”
IGNITE participants, called Analysts, will follow one of three tracks: software development, solution architecture, or cloud platform infrastructure. Throughout a structured, three-phase program, analysts will learn cloud fundamentals as well as technical skills, then gain real-world, hands-on experience within these tracks, all while learning the ropes as a consultant. Analysts will be hired for positions in two locations: Chicago (Maven Wave’s headquarters) and Irving, Texas (Atos North America’s headquarters).
Maven Wave has won dozens of awards for its company culture. The company has been certified as a Great Place to Work® for four consecutive years, named one of the Top Small Workplaces 2019 by the Chicago Tribune, and named one of the Best Workplaces in Consulting and Professional Services by FORTUNE, to list a few. A Google Premier Partner for the last 10 years, Maven Wave has won the Google Cloud Services Partner of the Year Award for North America for the past three years in a row.
