How We Know Exelaration Works

Introducing a New School of Thought

The future depends on an abundant flow of technophiles with the skills and experience to solve big challenges. Yet more than 700,000 tech roles currently sit vacant in the U.S. due to a dramatic gap in the tech talent pipeline.

Exelaration addresses this shortage by connecting people of varied backgrounds with the technology workforce. Our offices, located in Blacksburg, VA, Raleigh, NC, and Arlington, VA, opens the door for the next wave of engineers.

Through our award-winning program, early-career developers gain hands-on experience and expand their skillsets under the mentorship of established experts. These team members not only enhance our client delivery teams’ capabilities, they also help us deliver quality technology solutions at a lower cost. The best part? Clients have the option to hire these vetted developers upon project completion.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do your learners interact with clients?

They don’t, at least not at first. The heart of Exelaration is our cohort of mentors, who serve as point of contact for client stakeholders. These mentors are full-time employees that have been developing software for decades.

How do you know Exelaration works? 

Exelaration has been recognized as the #2 Technology & Engineering Internship program in the U.S.. Our learners go on to become leaders at the nation’s top tech employers. We also measure our client satisfaction by asking for a grade; our GPA currently stands at 3.8.

Does Exelaration do anything other than software development?

Software development is our primary deliverable, but our technologists are also experienced in data analysis, business analysis, DevOps, and Agile. When projects call for services beyond software development, we work with our client to determine the perfect source for those additional components.

Who is the ideal client for Exelaration?

Organizations looking to get software built. Exelaration clients enjoy the added capacity we provide to deliver more quality code to production.
Organizations looking to save money on technology. Outsourcing IT projects is expensive. Because our teams can be partially fueled by learners, our labor costs and fees are lower.
Organizations looking to build a tech talent pipeline. While they’re in our program, entry-level developers get to know our client projects and environments. This gives our clients access to engineering talent who’ve already been trained in their skillsets, culture, and framework.

Is your software lower quality? 

No. In fact, clients see lower defect rates and higher code coverage because we’re teaching best practices and proven principles, and we exemplify it on every project. Our full-time expert engineers review all deliverables and conduct extensive code reviews prior to client turnover.

What type of projects are right for Exelaration? 

We are open to software development of any size or scope. We can fully integrate within your team or function independently as an outsourced team. Think of Exelaration as an onshore development team; if you could send the work overseas, you can send it to us.
