- What does an Afternoon Instructor do?

An Afternoon Instructor is responsible for supporting a class of Boolean students. Working together with the main instructor, the Afternoon Instructor provides support from Monday to Friday, 15:00 to 18:00. The work doesn't stop with teaching coding: Instructors helps students understand the DNA of a developer, injecting them with a thirst for knowledge, problem-solver mindset, and a healthy dose of geekiness.

- This role is for you if:

  • You like writing code and you've always thought you'd be good at making other people passionate about coding
  • You love sharing your skills and knowledge
  • You have patience and empathy to pass on your passion to other people
  • You want to have a real impact on people's lives
  • You've got good practical experience with HTML, CSS, JS, React and Typescript: you might not have worked on big projects in all of these, but you know how to solve any problem you come across

- Why should you be an Instructor:

  • Knowing how to do something is good, but knowing how to do something well enough to explain it to someone else is a whole new level. Teaching helps you become a better professional:, you learn how to get into the nitty-gritty of a problem, and learn the concepts which often get neglected
  • It's a role that works really well remotely: you can do lessons wherever you are, as long as you've got a good internet connection
  • There's no equal to the satisfaction you get from changing someone's life, and helping them start a new and fulfilling career
