The onboarding experience at Counterpoint is a thorough one, lasting between 6-8 weeks. You will be grouped with other new hires who have similar skill sets and start dates to help you bond and grow as a group. We've seen this structure lead to better collaboration and enthusiasm.



We provide you with a series of classes to educate and certify your expertise in various areas. You will see examples, test your understanding and finish ready to rock your new assignments.


Video tutorials will allow you to see our work in real time and better understand how to achieve the desired finished product as you work through client needs.


Don't panic! This is truly designed to help you solidify your knowledge, not to send you into cold sweats. Your mentor will help guide you when you have questions too.


Your one on one mentor is your best resource as you crank through assignments and training. They are there to help, support, and assure your success.

They also help you improve your confidence as a developer and paint a picture for what to expect at work.
My mentor is Alison. It has been really great to have someone to help guide me through my career path at Counterpoint and to ask dumb questions.
One of the strengths of the training program is that you have access to many resources. There is always someone to reach out to for questions, whether they be teachers or people in the same training class. There were a lot of opportunities for interaction and collaboration.
Taji is my mentor! I think that the mentor program is a good way to help new peeps delve into the work environment.
The training program does a great job in terms of breadth and teaching how different technologies fit together. It does this without sacrificing depth for certain pieces that are core to the Counterpoint technology stack. My mentor is Nick. Being a few years ahead of me, he is a great resource on technology and life at Counterpoint. I have found his personal experience insightful.
It was nice having the opportunity to brush up on some basics before being introduced to new technologies. Having TAs not only helped us learn, but also gave us the chance to meet people who had experience working for Counterpoint. They've given us demonstrations on new training topics, answered questions on calls, and been consistently available on Slack.  That was definitely the highlight of my training.
At Counterpoint I received extensive training on a wide breadth of software and programming languages because they really want you to be a well rounded developer.

The two month training program allows all new hires to get up to speed with multiple different languages, making sure we have the tools necessary to excel at our jobs. When we are put on projects, we are involved in both back-end and front-end development, allowing us to use and grow in a range of skills.
Software Consultant
The Counterpoint training program I completed when I first started here taught me so much about web development and the full software stack we use. I use these skills at my job everyday, giving me a great opportunity to continue to build on them and improve as a software consultant.
