Skillcrush is looking for junior designers and developers to join our instructional team.
As a Teaching Assistant or Instructor, it’ll be your job to give students the crucial feedback they need to sharpen their design and development skills. You’ll teach them how to iterate based on feedback, concisely talk about their work, and troubleshoot problems.
This means responding to their questions in a timely manner, hosting live video q&as, helping to build engagement in our online community, and just generally being their biggest cheerleader. :)
This job could be right for you if you’re a junior designer or developer with great communication skills who cares about making technology education more fun, accessible, and personal.
You should be able to work 20 hours/week, preferably mostly evenings and weekends in U.S. time zone equivalents since students mainly need support outside of their own working hours so that’s when we’ll need you most!
