Frontend Web Design Mentor

We created CareerFoundry to help others build their careers while maintaining personal freedom and flexibility. Our 100% online, flexible, mentor-driven courses are setting the standard for globally accessible technical education.

CareerFoundry has recently developed a specialized course teaching frontend basics to Designers. The course will be for design professionals with an interest in developing coding skills. You’ll be working alongside students to help them complete a project-based online course.

Our global pool of over 90 mentors and tutors in the web development, iOS mobile development, user experience design, and user interface design fields has grown to include freelancers, entrepreneurs, consultants, and agency directors who passionately guide, motivate, and empower our students to create new careers in the tech industry. We are constantly searching for more teaching enthusiasts like you to join this pool.

Your Mission

You are passionate about sharing your knowledge and experience, supporting students on their way to becoming UX Designers who specialize in frontend development. We are looking for mentors/teachers who are interested in mentoring students from all over the globe – all online.

You have several years experience frontend development as well as experience in UX design, with a demonstrable track record showcasing your work for a variety of clients and companies.

You can show a first class portfolio with rock solid, relevant references to back it up. Ideally, you will already have gained experience in teaching or you have the right attitude and skills for it: you have time and patience for beginners and a strong desire to guide people along their career path in this field, with knowledge of the latest design tools, a broad network of experts in the field and an in-depth understanding of industry practices.

What you’ll be doing

We provide the learning materials, so we need you to accompany, guide and accelerate your mentee’s learning progress.

You will do this via:

  • Skype calls
  • Video reviews of student’s work
  • Messaging via the CareerFoundry platform.

The specialization course will take a part-time student 2 months to complete and a full-time student 1 month to complete.

What’s in it for you:

Apart from the sheer joy of working independently and remotely, there’s also…

  • Generous compensation and flexible working hours
  • The thrill of helping people around the world change their lives and cultivate a career they love
  • Ongoing professional networking opportunities

Mentors work on a freelance contract with CareerFoundry and are remunerated for portfolio reviews, coaching calls with students, and the occasional coaching call with their tutor partner.

Requirements

What we’re looking for:

  • Minimum of 5 years of experience in the tech industry
  • Experience in UX design and frontend development
  • Solid understanding of UX methodologies and processes
  • Proficient in HTML, CSS and JavaScript and comfortable with providing code reviews and bug fixes
  • Previous experience in mentoring / teaching, preferably online
  • Experience in working remotely
