Front End Developer / Instructor

0 people like this description

Our Client is looking for an Instructor with Front End Development skills to join their dedicated team!

Did you wish you had a mentor helping you to learn programming at its hardest moments? Did you ever feel like you could explain concepts better than the tutorials you read, the professor you had, or the forum posts you followed? If so, we've been looking for you.

Our mission is to empower working professionals in Houston with web development skills through our Front End Web Development evening program.

Students in the Front End class include project managers, designers, marketers and entrepreneurs.

We obsess over quality, practical project-based learning, and student experience.


Type: Classes run two nights a week from 6:30-9:30pm. You will also be required to hold office hours during the day time 2x a week as well. This will take approximately 12-15 hours per week.

Start Date: Immediately

Location: START Co-Working, Houston, TX

Your Responsibilities:

You'll be teaching passionate professionals the most challenging part of web development to overcome, the beginning.

On a given day, you will be instructing a ~20-person class. You will lecture, modify lessons we’ve used in the past, shape the curriculum by creating your own lessons, and help students one-on-one. Online or in-person office hours may be required to remediate students. You will work closely with the staff to learn about successful teaching methods and process. You will also communicate logistics to students if needed.

You have the opportunity to innovate in the way you teach concepts and create web tools that assist in the education process. In the past, instructors have created an app that tracks specific student Github repositories for commit progress and an app to automatically reorganize student seating arrangements.
