Our instructors serve as lecturers and mentors to our students, helping them learn to think like engineers and hone their skills in a programming discipline. You’ll also help define and refine the curriculum to stay current with cool new stuff. Have a look at the courses we’ve already launched.
You’ll teach three, 12-week semesters each year. The remaining 16 weeks you’ll only have light duties for The Iron Yard, such as curriculum updates and interviewing students for future classes. Beyond those things, you’re free to work on whatever you want (such as personal projects, open source projects, or products that we’re building and launching as The Iron Yard). And, of course, you’ll want to take some well-deserved time off.
Each class will be no more than 15 students per instructor, and you will have a campus director to take care of all the non-teaching-critical parts of running a program.
Outside of teaching responsibilities, you’ll be an active part of the development community in your city (hopefully, you already are).
