Career Coach (Remote/Contract) at Fullstack Academy
New York City, Remote Contract
We help smart, enthusiastic and passionate students go from amateur to pro developer in 13 intense weeks. After training hundreds of students in web development, we’ve carefully crafted our curriculum to be effective, fun and packed full of the skills that are most in-demand in the developer job market. We believe being a programmer is an awesome and supremely fulfilling job but that it requires more than technical chops to be great.
Fullstack Academy is the premier software development school located in New York City and Chicago. Y Combinator-backed, our school has garnered the attention of Forbes, TechCrunch, and Business Insider, among others. The reputation of our school is built on the professional success of each and every one of our students. Students have gone on to promising careers at top-tier companies, like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Spotify. In January 2016, we created the Grace Hopper Program, a need-blind software engineering program for women. In 2017, we launched Web Development Fellowship @ Fullstack Academy in partnership with NYC Tech Talent Pipeline, to offer a tuition-free version of our flagship Web Development Immersive to eligible New Yorkers.
“Fullstack Academy has been a life-changing experience” is something we hear often and the reason why we come to work everyday. Our students’ outcomes are the most important measures of our success and we’re looking to ensure their success by bringing on great contract Career Coaches to help polish their materials and interviewing skills.
