We created CareerFoundry to help others build their careers while maintaining personal freedom and flexibility. Our 100% online, flexible, mentor-driven courses are setting the standard for globally accessible technical education.
CareerFoundry has recently developed a specialized course teaching frontend basics to Designers. The course will be for design professionals with an interest in developing coding skills. You’ll be working alongside students to help them complete a project-based online course.
Our global pool of over 90 mentors and tutors in the web development, iOS mobile development, user experience design, and user interface design fields has grown to include freelancers, entrepreneurs, consultants, and agency directors who passionately guide, motivate, and empower our students to create new careers in the tech industry. We are constantly searching for more teaching enthusiasts like you to join this pool.
You are passionate about sharing your knowledge and experience, supporting students on their way to becoming UX Designers who specialize in frontend development. We are looking for mentors/teachers who are interested in mentoring students from all over the globe – all online.
You have several years experience frontend development as well as experience in UX design, with a demonstrable track record showcasing your work for a variety of clients and companies.
You can show a first class portfolio with rock solid, relevant references to back it up. Ideally, you will already have gained experience in teaching or you have the right attitude and skills for it: you have time and patience for beginners and a strong desire to guide people along their career path in this field, with knowledge of the latest design tools, a broad network of experts in the field and an in-depth understanding of industry practices.
