Big Industries Academy

If you grow as an employee, the company grows as well. That’s why we decided to setup the Big Industries Academy. The Academy is a platform for continuous learning by sharing expertise and knowledge within the team.

Learning Paths

For each team member we offer an individualized Learning Path taking into account the needs for the current role and the skills he or she will require in the future to fulfill their career goals. Both hard skills, like working towards a specific vendor certification or learning a new technology, as well as soft skills (e.g. effective communication, time management,…) are part of the curriculum.
Big Industries Academy Belts
The individual Learning Path is broken into levels. In order to complete a level, the trainee needs to meet specific learning objectives or perform a specific task to advance to the next level. Progressing to the next level is awarded with a Big Industries Academy Belt.

All employees have access to Cloud environments which they can use to practice new technologies or just try out new things.

Big Industries Academy Days

Every three months we gather together at an off-site location to share our wisdom and feed our family feel. These team events can be adventurous or we can just relax, cook together and build comradery. Having fun while you work and working with people that you enjoy being around is what matters to us.
