We are looking for instructors:

Our Software Engineering Immersive course is a life-changing educational experience where our students learn the skills and mindsets to take on new careers as web developers. We are looking for a lead instructor with strong JavaScript experience to play a key role on our growing instructional team.

 

Why teach our Software Engineering Flex?

If you are looking to make a life-changing impact by sharing your love for software development with the next generation of developers, we’d love for you to consider joining our team. We deliver more than just skills training, and are looking for teachers who share our vision for a community of lifelong learners pursuing work that they love. As a part-time teacher for our flagship part-time program, you will join us on one of our many campuses to:

  • Work closely with one or more co-instructors to guide students through a rigorous, transformational journey towards apprenticeship in software development.
  • Become a better leader, and mentor as you learn from veteran instructors and our world-class instructional coaches.
  • Inspire and support students as they identify their passions and drive their own continued learning beyond the curriculum.
  • Adapt our global curriculum and use it to guide your teaching, building your own lesson plans as needed and contributing back your lessons learned over time.
  • Facilitate a safe, supportive, and energetic community that welcomes the various needs and learning styles of your students.

What do we teach?

We adapt both our global curriculum and local approach to the technical trends and hiring environment of the times and cities we work in, but today our primary educational approach centers around JavaScript. In general, our curriculum is scaffolded to follow the historical evolution of software engineering. We start by teaching the fundamentals of programming and web design through JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. About 25% of our course (normally unit 2 of 4) focuses on Rails MVC or similar framework, using that context to introduce databases, security, and other foundational knowledge. The rest of the course (units 3 and 4) focuses back on JavaScript. We cover API development in Node, then tackle one or more front-end MV* frameworks (Backbone, Angular, Ember, React). We also cover all sorts of other things that junior web developers need to know, like source control, team collaboration, and developer workflow.

We give students the chance to spend focused time building at least 4 major projects, in addition to other smaller projects and labs. About 20% of overall class time is spent on dedicated project work.
