Teach at Minnesota's first coding bootcamp
Likely you have heard about the “skills shortage” and “the war for talent”… that Minnesota’s tech companies can’t hire fast enough, can’t afford to wait and struggle to find skilled product-centric developers that can build the next generation of products.
And you probably have heard about “code schools” in other parts of the country.
Minnesota here we go…
Concordia University, with the help of Software Craftsmanship Guild, is starting Minnesota’s first coding bootcamp (Concordia University Coding Bootcamp) to help turn people into smart developers and to help Minnesota’s best and fastest growing tech companies find the technical talent they badly need.
We will teach our students precisely what they need to succeed at a hot startup or in a development team tomorrow. We won’t just teach them code. We will teach them to act, think, and work like professional developers.
The first coding bootcamp starts January 2015.
We are looking to hire our first Lead Instructor this fall and have them in place by November 1st.
If you want to:
· teach aspiring developers and have your craft impact the market in months, not years,
· be valued for your voice, your vision and your innovative solutions to teaching software development better in an immersive environment,
· be an integral part of affecting hundreds of lives in the next years,
· work with our fiercely compassionate leadership team who will always be transparent, direct, and honest with you,
…then you’ve just found a great match.
You have a unique combination of skills, talents, and mindset, including:
· you’ve taught software development before in some context, either online or in person,
· you’re at the point in your career where you get more fulfillment, happiness, and thrill out of teaching grasshoppers rather than clocking in at a job where you’re working on yet another development project,
· you’re super patient because you remember what it was like when you started programming. Contributions on your Quora account, StackOverflow account, or Twitter feed are proof you want to help other developers as they figure things out,
· you’re still in the game and have actually written workable code in the last 12 months.
This is a full time job. Ground level, visionary, fun, but with an industry-competitive salary. This is not now, or ever, meant to be a side-gig or part time contractor role.
Are you thinking being a Lead Instructor is more than you can handle?
That’s OK… we will be looking for Mentors (paid) and Guest Presenters too.
I am going to stop here… if you want to find out more about the plan, the curriculum and what’s next, contact me and I can fill you in.
In your email, please help me out and provide URLs to your:
- If you have one… a video or screencast of you speaking, presenting, or teaching. The more the better. If not… summaries, dates and groups/locations of your presentations.
- Personal website
Know someone that might be a good fit but it’s not the right time for you? Please send them this link.
I look forward to hearing from you.
