  • The MindSpark Training Academy (MTA) was created to provide vocational training to talented and qualified individuals with specialized abilities, particularly young adults on the autism spectrum. The customized training will enable these individuals to use their interest in technology, keen eye for detail, and sustained focus to earn a living. Attention to detail and sustained focus are highly valued in the field of software testing, which can be enjoyable for people with an aptitude for finding patterns and irregularities, and highly satisfying when problems are identified in the software that is being tested.

    Candidates who are interested in the training program will be asked to fill out an application form and an assessment checklist prior to being invited for an interview and further assessment. Only those candidates with a high likelihood of completing the program will be accepted for training.

  • The MindSpark Training Academy offers 8-week training sessions consisting of both classroom and on-the-job training, and may also offer accelerated 4 – 6 week on-the-job training sessions. Training includes software testing concepts, simulations, real world exercises and work readiness skills, and is offered free of charge to participants. After completing a training session, qualified trainees are offered a 3-month paid apprenticeship with MindSpark Inc., which subsequently leads to employment as a paid software testing analyst. In collaboration with theExceptional Children’s Foundation (ECF), which provides a full continuum of lifespan services for 3,500 children and adults with developmental disabilities and other special needs in the Los Angeles area, MTA classroom training is housed in Culver City, California.

MindSpark has been a great find for the Fox Networks Group. As our application portfolio has grown, our user base has expanded, and the market dynamics have necessitated much faster turnarounds, we reached a point in our product lifecycle where we needed to either add more resources or implement expensive automation tools to keep up with demand. MindSpark has met these growing needs, providing us with a group of well-trained professionals that consistently deliver.

The MindSpark team has exceeded our initial expectations when we first launched this “experiment” almost two years ago. In addition to a very beneficial value proposition, providing us with reasonably priced resources in the same time zone as our development teams, our internal team has thoroughly enjoyed the win/win feeling of this particular business model. The benefits of MindSpark as a valued business partner, have clearly outweighed the minor adjustments we have made to our standard testing processes. We look forward to continuing to work with MindSpark in the future.

iRise had an immediate need for additional testing support.  SquareOne was able to quickly assemble and deploy a Quality Assurance team.

The quality of the service was comparable to offshore testing teams with the added benefit of supporting a good cause.

iRise could not have been more thrilled with the results.
