Feel you’ve got what it takes? Apply!

I’m already quite familiar with the GO language. Why should I consider applying for the "Data Engineering for Computer Scientists" program?

Impressive! Being adept in GO sets you apart among Belgian developers. During the assessment, you’ll take a programming test. Successful completion offers you a choice: further enhance your GO expertise through our dedicated course (there’s always more to explore), or dive straight into our intensive Data Engineering program.

In this program, you’ll delve into constructing data frameworks and stores, mastering distributed computing systems, and crafting robust cloud-native solutions for data processing and analysis. Benefit from hands-on project experiences guided by experts, embrace innovation and future-ready techniques, prioritize security, and more.

What kind of assessments do I have to do?

We’ll start with two online assessments:

  1. Personal competences 
  2. Technical skills, with a focus on the following areas:
    • Pattern recognition 
    • Deriving functions from mathematical problems 
    • Your ability to learn new (technical) languages 
    • Graph interpretation
    • English proficiency

Please note that you won’t automatically get your results after you complete the tests. We’ll discuss them with you shortly after.

If you’re successful with your online assessment, you’ll be invited on-site for an interview and a final assignment.


Until when can I apply for the next tutorrio program?

Due to high demand, we’re excited to announce the launch of our brand new “Data Engineering for Computer Scientists” program, designed for all experts and Software Developers out there. Applications are now open!

Applications for the “Data Engineering from Zero to Hero” program are now closed.

Are there any criteria for the application?

It all depends on the program: the level of training or experience required varies according to the chosen program (see above).

Your age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, social or financial background doesn’t matter. If you live in Belgium and hold a Belgian or EU Schengen zone passport or a B-card (unlimited single permit), and have the dedication to take a full-time commitment five days a week (with 3 days on-site in our Antwerp office and 2 days of working from home), you are more than welcome to send us your application!

How and where can I apply?

You can easily apply by filling out the registration form on the course page. Send us your CV, and tell us a bit more about yourself, your goals, and your motivations.

What is the application process like?

The application process consists of the following steps:

  1. Fill in the registration form, send us your CV, and tell us a bit more about yourself, your goals, and your motivations.
  2. Complete our online assessment in your own time.
  3. We’ll schedule your first interview and arrange a video call to learn more about you and see if we click.
  4. Are we still a good match? Nice! Then it’s time to pass the programming test. We’ll assess if you have the right skills.
  5. Succeeded? Congrats! Visit us here, at our Antwerp offices, to check out our location, final assignment, and discuss your results.
  6. All good? Welcome! This is where the adventure begins…

I sent in my application. How long does it usually take until I get an answer?

It usually takes us between 5 and 10 working days to assess your application, but this can take longer during holidays or if we get a high number of registrations, so please bear with us. We’ll definitely send you a response, even if it’s a “no”.

I got accepted! What happens now?

Upon acceptance of your candidacy, you will be contacted by the Klarrio HR department to go over your contract. To sign the contract, you will be invited to our offices in Antwerp, where we will show you around and hand over your laptop and welcome goodies. Once you successfully complete the program, you’ll receive an updated contract in line with Klarrio’s junior data engineer remuneration package.

The courses: how it all works…

Is it really free to attend the tutorrio learning program? Are there any hidden costs?

It really is, and there are no hidden fees. In fact, we provide a salary and compensation package already while you are studying, so that our trainees don’t have to worry about having a monthly income or working on the side.

When does the next course begin?

In April 2024. You will receive an email with all the information prior to your first class, with the exact date and time.

What language are the classes held in? Do I have to speak fluent Dutch?

The classes are in English. Also, if you complete the program and start working at Klarrio, the main language will be English.

I have a full-time job/course. Can I attend tutorrio in the evenings?

We’re afraid that’s not possible. tutorrio is a full-time commitment, it is an intensive learning program teaching you everything from the basics of computer science to cutting-edge technologies data engineers use. 

Do I have to bring my own laptop to the classes?

No. tutorrio will provide you with all the equipment required to follow the program. Treat it with respect and return it in the condition in which you received it (except for normal wear).

Can I attend the tutorrio program remotely?

Unfortunately no, the program requires you to be on-site as we have a lot of hands-on exercises in the curriculum. You do get 2 days a week when you are working on assignments from home, though.

If I successfully complete the full tutorrio program, am I guaranteed to get a job contract?

Yes, but you do already get a contract as a ‘junior data engineer trainee’ with Klarrio when you start the learning program. You also start receiving a competitive salary package immediately. Once you successfully complete the full tutorrio program, you will get an employment contract as a ‘junior data engineer’ at Klarrio, and more perks will be added to your remuneration package.

What happens if I fail to complete the full tutorrio program?

This can happen but may depend on a number of factors. Depending on the reason, the question is addressed as part of the assessment and during a one-to-one interview.

What happens if I complete the tutorrio program but decide to go work for another company?

If you complete the program, you continue to work for Klarrio for at least 18 months or compensate Klarrio as defined in the “scholingsbeding*” by the Belgian federal government:

Training stipulation (scholingsbeding*)

The training stipulation is a stipulation according to Belgian law whereby the employee who, during the execution of this employment contract, undergoes specific training at the employer’s expense, agrees to reimburse part of the training cost if the employee decides to leave the company before the agreed period.

  • The period is determined at 18 months after completion of the program

Reimbursements, should you decide to leave are:

  • between 0 – 6 months: 11.000 – 7.500 euro
  • between 6 – 12 months:   7.500 – 3.000 euro
  • between 12 – 18 months:   3.000 – 0 euro

I will have to commute to the tutorrio HQ from another city. Will my travel expenses be covered?

You will get a fully paid public transport subscription as soon as you start your studies at tutorrio.
