We offer a comprehensive training solution for our engineers
MasterPeace’s training philosophy is fundamentally focused on enabling our Smart Creative engineers to realize their highest potential, and is completely aligned to their individual aspirations. We combine traditional training techniques with real world, hands-on project work, augmented by peer and mentor coaching. All of these activities are individually tailored through our Individual Development Plan process.
Traditional Training – MasterPeace offers our engineers personalized access to a vast array of online training including the complete Safari library. MasterPeace also supports our engineers' attendance in classroom based training via a combination of MasterPeace in-house training and support for classroom training via our tuition support program.
Hands-on Training – MasterPeace’s training approach goes deeper than traditional training, by offering our engineers access to an array of hands-on opportunities. For example, our StormCloud big data analytic platform provides hands-on, real-world training, for Hadoop, Spark, Storm, and AWS along with other Cloud based virtual environments. Each of our COEs provides a variety of training opportunities from working with Raspberry PIs, Beagle Bones, and Z-wave devices in our Internet of Things COE, to working with Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and CISCO’s cloud technologies in our Utility computing COEs. These projects offer the opportunity for our engineers to learn the latest technologies on relevant real-world projects, in collaboration with other MasterPeace Engineers and external Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) from various vendors.
Peer and Mentor Based Collaborative Education - MasterPeace understands that training is an inherently collaborative discipline. Our Individual development Plans and COE structure allows us to create alignment between engineers for both peer based training and mentor-protégé training. Our bonus program incentives mentors to seek out and work with protégés on a wide range of initiatives, creating a true win-win learning environment.
Individual Development Plans (IDPs) – A cornerstone of our training approach is tailoring the training and development program to meet the needs and aspirations of each individual engineer. These individualized plans are developed in collaboration sessions with each engineer, over breakfast, lunch, or even a beer throughout the year. We conduct 1:1 meetings between the engineer and our VP of Talent Development and/or CEO. This personal attention by MasterPeace leaders ensures the company is committed to delivering on our training and development promises.
Technical Deep Dives – These sessions offer the ability to explore a specific technology in depth, share ideas and insights, and get to know each other. MasterPeace hosts bi-monthly technology deep dives. These sessions are typically hosted by a MasterPeace engineer, along with a panel of internal and external speakers, focus on a technology of interest, in an informal setting.
Technical Conferences – We understand that technology is a community effort and that conferences and related industry events are a great way to stay current, connect with leading technology experts and vendors, and bring back external information that can be shared with fellow engineers. MasterPeace collaborates with our engineers to support the greatest participation in conferences by creating win-win scenarios. We cover the cost and expenses related to conference attendance, but we do this in partnership. We expect the engineer will bring back content from the conference and share that at upcoming Technology Deep dives. Even better, we help get our engineers roles as conference presenters. Going this extra step provides more value to the engineer and MasterPeace. By requesting a presentation after the conference, we know our engineers engage and retain more of the conference content making the conference more valuable for them and for MasterPeace. This is one example of our partnership approach that is baked into everything we do, and is key to the MasterPeace difference.
