[Campus] Web Engineers Recruitment Program

rtCamp is a WordPress Consultancy providing solutions to household names like Google, Facebook, IndianExpress, Al Jazeera, Isha Foundation, HCL, Rotimatic, and many more.

We have been recruiting directly from campuses across India ever since 2015. With over 12 years of experience working primarily in the WordPress space, we have been running a WordPress Training Program that is free of cost and open for anyone to use.

In rtCamp, we are looking for folks having strong computer science and web development fundamentals. Your knowledge and passion for open source matter more than your grades and/or degree. Dropouts, students with backlogs are more than welcome!

How this works?

We want you to get started with a quiz. This quiz will give us a good idea about your web fundamentals. Once you clear the quiz, we will invite you to an interview. If you do not do well with the quiz, do not worry. Learn things and come back and take the test. You trying out our quiz several times will not be something we will hold against you, we will rather be delighted with your persistence!

Once selected, we will take you through a full-time training program for 6 months during which will learn WordPress engineering skills that some of the biggest publishers, business and governments across the world use. This training program is carefully designed by rtCamp’s own senior engineers and focuses on the overall development of individuals with various cutting-edge technologies to meet industry demands.

Career Progression

Since this will be full-time training with exposure to real-world client and open source projects, you will get a salary as a normal engineer would have.

Your career will start as Web Engineer and progress to be WordPress Engineer → Senior WordPress Engineer → Engineering Manager and from there if you wish, you can aim for more leadership roles within rtCamp over the years.

As a Web Engineer, during your training or anytime during your stint with rtCamp you are more than welcome to switch to any other internal roles such as project management, client-facing sales/marketing role. etc.

Most importantly, there is no lock-in or any kind of bond which forces you to spend X years at rtCamp. You can quit training midway. As well as you can finish the training and join some other business within the WordPress ecosystem or anywhere outside. And no, you don’t need to pay back any training fees or penalties to rtCamp in case of separation.

All we expect is that you continue contributing to open source projects for the rest of your life, no matter where you go. Of course, this is not legally binding.
