Careers at Lighthouse Labs

Why work here.

Lighthouse Labs is a unique and weird place to work. We all care to an almost unhealthy degree about our students, our community and each other. We value transparency and collaboration, and are always striving to find the best ways to train the next generation of developers.

Because Dogs.

We are looking for a special kind of mentor.

You are a rare breed: a strong programmer who is passionate about mentorship & education. You believe in learning by doing (even if you’re traditionally trained), and you love people almost as much as you love code.

Our community of mentors consists of over 80 kick-ass developers. They are the heart and soul of our program and want nothing more than to see our students succeed - not just in bootcamp, but in their life-long careers.

Mentors + Instructors - Full Stack Development (FT & PT)

Vancouver, Toronto

Help train the next generation of Developers!

Locations

Vancouver, Toronto

Description

Are you an Intermediate-Senior level full-stack Developer who has a passion for helping train the next generation of devs? If you’re a natural teacher, believe the best way of learning is by doing and learning from professionals, are eager to surround yourself in a culture of smart people and love the idea of making a difference in the lives of students, you could be an ideal fit within our Education team.

If this sounds like you we’d love to chat about our teaching and mentoring opportunities at Lighthouse Labs!

At Lighthouse Labs we aim to empower our students to master the craft of software development, launch careers and contribute to the incredible growth of Canada’s tech industry. Code is a craft and the best way to work on your craft is to study under people who treat the practice of code as such. We believe in outcome driven education, that is built through a curriculum that is treated like a product i.e. constantly being tested, challenged, improved, and is contributed to by a community of developers who equally care about how to best train the next generation of developers.

What You’ll be Doing

Teach and mentor our curriculum on your own terms. We structure our teaching opportunities so you can be as passive or active as you like, working anywhere from 3-20 hours per week or even full time. Providing one-on-one hands on mentorship is just the start of how our teaching staff can contribute to Lighthouse Labs and our student’s success. Below are some additional opportunities we provide:

  • Influence what students are learning by simply having a say or contributing to our curriculum
  • Developing and delivering workshops (rev share opportunities)
  • Working on open source and our private software projects
  • Opportunities within the community as well as our many ‘learn to code events’ across Canada
  • Speaking at industry conferences and events (we have an annual budget to support this)

What we offer:

  • A flexible schedule and a consistent time commitment that works around your current job/ freelancing gigs/ side projects/ startup. (We want you to keep coding and contributing to community!)
  • Working alongside our community of 60+ developers who mentor and instruct with us who work at leading companies and startups across Canada
  • Discounted rates to work out of Devhub, Toronto’s coworking space to developers
  • The chance to get closer to additional opportunities through the developers in our space
  • Choice of being a salaried employee (w/ vacation and benefits) or an hourly contractor which could add to an additional part time annual income of 30k-
  • We’re dog friendly!

Qualifications

We highly encourage women and people of diverse backgrounds to apply for this position

Technical Qualifications:

Mentors don’t need to have had formal training. They also don’t need to come in knowing every technology we teach. We have a dynamic curriculum and devs can learn and ramp up in parallel with mentoring on the floor.

  • 2-5 years of professional experience in software development, with all or most of that time focused in web development
  • Preference for open source web languages and tools.
  • We really like Javascript and Ruby, but are eager to chat if you’re experienced with the following frameworks Python, Java, Scala, Go
  • We really like jQuery, Rails, React, NodeJS + (Express or Koa) but many of our mentors also have other backgrounds such as Django, , MeteorJS, Elixir + Phoenix, Scala, AngularJS, Ember,
