Co-Op Life at Improving Vancouver

December 15, 2022 | 3 Minute Read

Co-Ops are a valuable part of Improving Vancouver’s current projects and future plans. The Co-Op program is also a great way for students to jumpstart their careers by receiving real-world experience – all while getting paid! 

By the end of a co-op term, the student will be able to do things such as:  

  • Coding and testing parts of a feature 

  • Configuring environments and setting up test automation and frameworks 

  • Authoring both developer and end-user documentation 

Co-Ops may come back as permanent employees after graduating. One of our team members, Karen, recalls her journey from Co-Op to becoming a Senior Developer: “I had no prior experiences going through these projects, but I got all the support and encouragement I needed from my teammates and my supervisors.” 

They will also be provided with guidance in gaining domain knowledge in the constantly expanding world of database ecosystem and cloud, and in how we solve unique problems using a variety of technologies for industry-leading (and some unicorn) clients.    

Avneet, who also became a Senior Developer, aspires to gain experience in management. She reflects on how she was “scrum master for [her] team, ran meetings, and even led smaller scale sub-projects for the team.”
