The tech industry has a real struggle when it comes to attracting diverse talent, and Ada Developers Academy is doing something about that. The non-profit offers an intensive, tuition-free coding school for women and gender diverse people interested in starting a career in tech — and the school is looking for a new instructor to join its ranks.
The instructor will partner with a co-instructor to lead a cohort of Ada students as they go from zero technical backgrounds to budding programmers ready for their first in-workplace technical internships. The teacher must also be able to create a positive and collaborative working environment for students.
On the day-to-day, the instructor will be responsible for leading classes, giving interactive lectures and conducting hands-on programming exercises in the classroom. They will also act as a project manager and guide group work projects.
Other duties include designing curriculum, providing constructive feedback and structured assessments for students and instilling Ada’s core values around collaboration, advocacy and inclusion. Learn more about this position and apply On GeekWork and learn more about Ada on its website.
