The Northcoders Developer Incubator helps organizations increase the size of their technology teams by hiring a team of junior developers, who are supported by senior developers and mentors for six months or more.
A spokesperson said: “Teams are embedded into the companies and work on their products, with the Northcoders senior developer providing support, feedback and guidance to the juniors, and accelerating their value to the organization.
“The specific details of the work delivered for R2 Factory are confidential. However, the project will last nine months and involves the development and creation of brand new software.”

Rolls-Royce’s R² Factory is made up of engineers, data scientists, innovators, professors and coders who work with leading global companies across a number of industries by combining advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning with expertise in engineering.
R2 Factory turned to Northcoders because they were rapidly growing their team and needed to immediately hire developers to help them keep pace.
Ian Whitford, CTO of R2 Factory, said, “We wanted to quickly build a capable software team and grow it with the business. Given the demands placed on our senior managers, we could not realistically do this in-house, as recruiting in a competitive market takes a huge amount of time and resources. Northcoders handled all of this for us, and the technical mentorship they provide to junior developers has made a huge difference in their trajectory. We were impressed with the speed and responsiveness of Northcoders.
Commenting on the project, Amul Batra, COO of Northcoders, added: “R2 Factory is a leader in its field, so it’s fantastic to partner with them. Developer Incubator was designed to accelerate growth and support for junior developers, as well as lasting business value. We are delighted with the results – long may it continue.
