About Workback Talent

Frequently asked questions

How are Apprentices categorized in terms of hiring?
plus icon
Apprentices are treated just like an intern or co-op, meaning 6 month term-based full time employees (W2) but typically without benefits included. Your team processes the Apprentices wages an associated taxes, and pays Workback for placement and hiring conversion after a successful trial period.
How can we see example candidates? 
plus icon
It's free to browse our available workers and to attend our demo day experiences. Just click SEE OUR WORKERS and add your email, our team will get in touch to learn more about your needs in order to curate the matchmaking experiences for you.
Who is the talent and where do they come from? 
plus icon
Workback sources talent from the leading coding bootcamps and university online programs - we specialize in finding "hidden talent" from alternative credentialing programs especially 6-12 month accelerated online technical programs, which are our specialty.
What does the program cost for companies?
plus icon
It's free to meet the talent. Companies pay a fixed fee on Day 1 to place Apprentices, which includes 6 months of career support including coaching, supplemental training, and community access. At the 180 day mark, if a team decides to keep the Apprentice on staff as a full time employee, there is a fixed hiring fee at that point. There is no hire fee if the full time hire isn't made.
What does the program cost for Apprentices?
plus icon
The program is free for workers, who apply and are selected from the top 10% of all technical talent.
How do you test for technical skills?
plus icon
Workback uses a 5 step technical vetting process including profile review, credential verification, coding tests, technical work sample and demo video, and a pre-recorded behavioral interview. Companies can sign up for free to browse profiles and shortlist suggested candidates for interviews during demo day.
Are these full time roles? 
plus icon
This is a full-time commitment: 40 hours per week for the six-month program.
