Austin, Texas, United States expand job description ↓

Description

The Role

We are seeking a strong engineer and communicator who is excited to share their love for programming and engineering with our students. The Associate Directors of Technical Curriculum Design are responsible for the design & development of the various technical curricula delivered to our students. By the end of the course, students will either a) build a website within a student team, or b) develop a web application within a student team.


Key responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Design, build, implement, and iterate on curriculum for after-school coding classes and capstone project
  • Attend (some) after-school instructional sessions to understand student progress and needs
  • Monitor and evaluate student outcomes and implement program changes to improve student learning
  • Identify and solve scale challenges to grow the impact of the organization


NOTE: Code2College is in the midst of an accelerated growth pattern and the professional growth opportunities for all team members over the next 12-24 months are significant.

The Problem

“If you can’t see it, you can’t be it.” So many students lack access to some of our most in-demand careers and technical industries. Further, the absence of opportunity to explore these areas through exposure to industry professionals, technical skills development, and at-bats to practically apply these skills have led to the dearth of diverse technical talent that we see today.

Our Mission

To dramatically increase the number of minority and low-income high school students who enter and excel in STEM undergraduate majors and careers.

Our Vision

We will transform Central Texas into the nation’s capital for diverse, homegrown technical talent
