Learning & Development

The growth and well being of our engineers is a top priority at Form3. We all learn in different ways though, so we have a very flexible approach to Learning & Development (L&D).

Investment time: our engineers are given 4 hours per week to spend fixing issues outside of their direct area of responsibility that have been identified as inefficient or troublesome. This provides a platform for our engineers collaborate with different people and technologies, whilst solving problems that will directly improve the performance of the wider engineering team.


Certification reimbursements: upon agreement with their team lead, our engineers are free to expense any certification costs that are beneficial to their roles. As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, we encourage our engineers to become AWS certified. Some other certifications our engineers have taken the past are CNCF Kubernetes certifications (CKA/CKAD), Google Cloud certifications and Hashicorp Cloud Engineer certifications


Meetups & conferences: we have sponsored multiple major conferences in the past, such Gophercon UK 2021 & 2022 and Gophercon Europe 2021 & 2022. We like to bring our remote team together at these big events, so we have sponsored our engineers tickets. Our team can also attend any other events they wish, as long as they make the required arrangements with their team leads.


Udemy for Business: free access to the platform and all courses. The AWS Certification prep courses are particularly popular with our engineers.

Our engineers are not limited to these company wide initiatives!

We encourage everyone to discuss any courses, platforms or conferences they want to take part of to ensure that they have the tools they need to deliver their best work. Then, in agreement with their team leads, our engineers allocate time to conduct their training as part of their workload.
