Markit On Demand invites you to earn while you learn

So you want to be a web developer? 

Markit On Demand designs, builds, and hosts web sites and applications for many of the largest banks, brokerage houses, and media outlets in the world. We create richly interactive sites using C#, Javascript, CSS, and HTML. We’ve been building “Ajax” based apps since it was just a cleaning product, are continually pushing the browser as an application platform, and are passionate about creating sites that are highly performant during periods of huge traffic. 

We need help, and that’s where you come in. Markit On Demand is hosting a web developer training program. You get to learn how to build complex web applications; we get to grow our development team. 

You will be paid for your time in the program. It’s a five week engagement (9-5, M-F), starting October 13th 2014. Successful candidates will be offered a full time, salaried position with benefits. 

We’re looking for people with experience writing code (regardless of language or platform) who want to expand their skills to include web technologies. The program consists of lectures from members of the MOD development team focusing on client and server side technologies, as well as our own libraries and frameworks, and a lot of hands on lab time. 

Candidates must be eligible to work in the US. Candidates outside of CO must be able to relocate independently by the program start date. Candidates must also be able to work full time at the close of the session.

Markit On Demand is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

We respectfully request no agency or recruiter inquiries or candidate submissions.

• 1 – 2 years experience as a student, intern or employee in an academic, creative or professional environment.
