#About the gig
We’re looking for a Lead Instructor for our Data Analytics Bootcamp with a passion for data and for sharing their knowledge with apprentice data analysts. You need to be a strong communicator and very patient -- you will find yourself explaining many abstract and complex concepts in math and technology to the first-time data squads.
The Lead Instructor will be responsible for:
Overseeing the whole academic experience of an Ironhack bootcamp (from student selection to graduation).
Teaching at our Barcelona Campus.
Supervising Teaching Assistants.
Screening our prospective students through technical interviews and coding challenges.
Working with the Ironhack education team to improve the data analytics curriculum and teaching practices.
The role includes 2 to 4 months of non-teaching time per year to work on in-house data projects or improve the data curriculum.
Ironhack is an education startup that was founded to disrupt the way we learn about technology. We think it sucks that we’ve been learning the same way since the Industrial Revolution, so we empower students to find meaningful careers in software development or product design by offering immersive learning experiences to extremely motivated people.
Our higher purpose is to transform the education space by making it more customer-centric and outcomes-driven. Students finish our program with a new way of thinking and approaching problems, resulting in new jobs, companies they’ve built, or promotions at their current roles.
