  • How is the journey? What happens in the program?
    It is much more than an internship or scholarship. We want a fast and impactful work and learning experience. Residents work side by side with CAOS Focado leaders building startups and carrying out projects in these ventures. The journey is divided into 2 phases with some agreements already established: 1st phase (6 months to 1 year): Initial adaptation phase in which residents get to know the CF, its methods and its culture, quickly immersing themselves in support activities in each of the ventures in which our team is. At this stage, it is possible that career opportunities will appear in the ventures of our ecosystem. Together, we will be keeping an eye on these opportunities! Phase 2 (6 months - 1 year): Secondary phase focused on the resident's role in acting autonomously with venture leaders and teams. At this stage, we will also be attentive to opportunities for professional referral.
  • What is CAOS Focado looking for in me?
    Courage. Speed. Proposition. Experimentation. Someone who enjoys professional challenges and has a passion for learning fast. We work with advanced technologies and entrepreneurship, two very challenging areas. To know specifically about the contour of each area, please consult the section of the areas that participate in the residence.
  • What areas can I fit in?
    Areas of CAOS Focado that currently participate in the residency: DPT (Design, Product & Technology): team that works with the technical area of the ventures CAM (Commercial, Customer Service & Marketing): sales and customer contact area People & Management: team responsible for taking care of people and their performance Finance & Governance: team that works in the administrative, financial and legal areas of startups
  • Do residents get compensation?
    Yes. We offer market-compatible compensation at the internship level. Specific information will be provided to applicants in the selection process.
  • When does it happen?
    The candidate evaluation cycle opens in October of each year. There may be opportunities at other times of the year.
  • How is the employment contract?
    We are looking for undergraduates or recent graduates for an internship, with a load of 30 hours per week. For graduates, just sign up. Did you just graduate? Be sure to subscribe too!
  • What are the CAOS Focado ecosystem opportunities?
    CF is a group of technology startups. As companies grow, professional opportunities open up. Of course, we would love it if someone from CAOS Focado had a great opportunity in a vacancy opened by our ventures! It is important to say that we cannot guarantee with certainty that there will be a perfect opportunity or vacancy in our ecosystem. On the other hand, it is a very favorable scenario for this to happen. If referral is not possible – or if the resident does not choose to follow – we are sure that the experience of development and learning will be invaluable in the future professional search. We also provide assistance for the next steps for those who will thrive on the open sea :)
  • How long does the CF Experience last?
    The CF residency can last for a total of 2 years and has two phases: The 1st phase lasts 1 year and the 2nd phase lasts 6 months, renewable for another 6 months. This is CAOS Focado's commitment to residents. After the period, the contract ends so that new residents can be selected.
  • What happens at the end of each cycle?
    At the end of the cycles, every 6 months, residents reflect on their learning and present their results, creations and achievements to the senior CAOS Focado team. At this closure, we and the resident decide together whether to renew the cycle or terminate. A certificate can be issued if the resident requests it.
  • What are the stages of the selection process?
