Ada Developers Academy, a fiscally sponsored project of Third Sector New England, is an intensive software developer training program for women and gender diverse people. In one year, students are taught programming techniques and best practices to enable them to become junior developers. The program consists of two distinct parts, six months in the classroom, and five months of internship, where students refine their skills working on real-world code.
At Ada, teachers lead by example, demonstrating their passion for learning and their commitment to a high standard of excellence. In addition to excellent instruction on the core concepts of web development, teachers lead discussions, guide inquiry, support students in their projects and challenges, and provide feedback to students and each other.
The Software Development Instructor is responsible for preparing students for software development careers by teaching our 6-month intensive programming training course to students who are otherwise not prepared to enter the tech industry as developers. The Software Development Instructor will work very closely with a co-instructor to deliver curriculum to their students.
As an instructor at Ada Developers Academy, you should be passionate about teaching and excited to take part in directly addressing the diversity imbalance in computer software careers. In addition, the following skills are required:
We strongly encourage people of color and others, who will bring a strong commitment to, and previous success, supporting populations of diverse cultural perspectives to apply.
