Collow vision

Did you make it to the bottom of the job posting? Then you’re probably curious enough to read a little more about Collow’s background as well ;-).
Here we go.

3 million people in the Netherlands have an insecure employment position (TNO). At the same time, there is a huge shortage of technically skilled personnel and the world is rapidly digitizing. We innovatively help discover, train and connect new IT professionals to companies.

Collow works as follows.


In our virtual world Collowland, you will learn about the IT profession.

And that’s a lot broader than you might think! In an interactive journey full of mini-games, you’ll discover the differences between front-end and back-end programming, what a cyber security specialist does, what data science entails, and what the challenges are for an IT management professional.


Enthusiastic about front-end programming? Then follow the “front-end track” at Collow with numerous front-end training courses at different levels.


You are doing well and have already completed a few workouts. Your training progress is now shared completely anonymously with organizations on Collow. Next, you see that an organization has started following you and encouraging you to continue developing!


After three months of e-learning, you suddenly get a notification: ‘Organization X wants to match you!’ Based purely on your skills and training progress, there is an organization that wants to offer you a junior IT position, how cool is that!



We would love to tell you much more about Collow, but we are also curious about who you are and what your motivations and ambitions are! Apply at hello@collow.nl, we’d love to get to know you.
