Our program

Ready for your next challenge? Gain knowledge and practical experience to start your successful career!

In our program, we form cross-functional teams to build products. Our teams discover, build, learn, and grow fast.

The best way to solve a problem is to look at it from as many perspectives as possible. Cross-functional and diverse teams have different roles, cultural backgrounds, and professional and personal experiences. Teams comprise of:

Interaction Designers, who understand how users interact with technology. They focus on designing engaging interfaces with well-thought-out experiences.

Artificial Intelligence Engineers, who use algorithms to identify data patterns, build self-learning systems, automate repetitive work and take a product to a whole new level.

Software Engineers, who bring ideas to life through coding. They engineer systems that are usable, secure and scalable. They do amazing things that look like magic to others.

Product Managers, who are responsible for defining a product that solves discovered problems. They also drive decision-making and take care of the team's resources.

Product Marketing & Communication Managers, who are responsible for communicating the product’s value to the market. They know the product, the users, and how to generate interest in it.

Your product innovation journey follows a proven format from discovery to launch.

The DPS process chart from discovery to launch

The team learns and uses best-practice to discover unknown user problems and mitigate the riskiest assumptions.

The team utilizes its diverse backgrounds to come up with innovative product ideas and validates them by methodically running experiments.

Once the experiments suggest to move forward with an idea, the team then builds a Minimal Viable Product in order to gain richer insights.

Success stories

Develop solutions that solve today's challenges.

As an autonomous team, you will take over the responsibility and opportunity of solving a current challenge brought to us by an industry partner. They will trust you to bring a promissing idea to life.
