Ada Developers Academy (Ada) (www.adadevelopersacademy.org), a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks (www.tsne.org), provides an intensive developer training program for women and gender diverse people with little software development experience. 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 at local partner companies, where students refine their skills working on real-world code.
Are you an experienced program manager who enjoys building genuine relationships and helping others? Do you enjoy the challenge of creating structure and process to improve efficiency? This is an exciting opportunity for a service-oriented individual who is excited to grow and scale two critical programs at Ada, while positively impacting the lives of aspiring and current software developers. The Program Manager, Internships and Alumni will have the dual responsibility of managing the internship program and stewarding the alumni program. You will leverage your experience to lead the internship placement program, collaborating with students, staff and partner companies to ensure a successful process from beginning to end. You will also develop the alumni program, defining the vision and strategy, and subsequently creating and executing strategies to effectively engage alumni. You believe in the potential of Ada alumni (Adies) as individuals and as a network, and are excited to support this growing community. This is a full-time position (40 hours per week).
