Can I work remotely?
Yes! Most Udacity Blitz projects will in fact be remote.

Do I need to have a U.S. visa to register, and to work on Udacity Blitz projects?
No, a visa is not necessary, as this is a consulting opportunity through Udacity. Udacity Blitz contributors are not employees of Udacity, and opportunities are available around the world.

How will I get notified if there is a potential project match?
A Technical Project Manager will contact you directly when we’ve found a good match with a project to confirm your interest. If it's your first project, the next step will be onboarding.

Once I am matched with a project, what does onboarding involve?
Before you can actually start working on a project, you’ll need to do things like fill out tax forms, and sign non-disclosure agreements. You’ll also be given access to our Udacity Blitz Slack channel, and you’ll connect with a Technical Project Manager to go over important program details, and get any lingering questions answered.

Yes! Our transparent hiring model allows clients to hire away Blitzers with no restrictions or fees. Our clients are afforded the option of reaching out to you directly, and if they opt to do so, we offer our full support if you elect to work for them. When a client loves your work and wants to hire you at their own company, everybody wins!

If I get stuck on something during a project, can I ask for help?
Of course! Your Technical Project Manager will be available to help support you throughout the entire project, and you will also have access to a Udacity Blitz Slack community comprised of other Blitzers like you. That being said, we do ask that you come prepared with a can-do attitude and willingness to learn!

When can I add Udacity Blitz to my resume?
Once you complete your first Udacity Blitz project, you may highlight your Udacity Blitz work on your resume, on your LinkedIn profile, and anywhere else you showcase your professional accomplishments. You may NOT, however, post any client details without the express permission of the client, nor any details about the project that would make it evident who the client is. Please contact us before posting if you have any questions about what you can and cannot post.
