Job Category: full or part-time.
Reports to: Chief Education Officer
Compensation: $50K - $55K
Our Mission: Hack the Hood provides real-world, hands-on learning opportunities and mentorship that help low-income youth of color learn the skills and form the relationships they need to chart a course towards 21st century careers in online technology and social media.
Our Program: In our 6-week boot camps, youth receive training in basic computer skills, web marketing and promotion, search engine optimization (SEO), and website development, which they then use to build mobile-responsive web sites and listings for real small business clients from their own communities.
Hack the Hood’s Technical Program/Curriculum Manager holds the standards, teacher training, and curriculum development responsibilities for Hack the Hood’s boot camps, membership programs, and workshops that are focused on tech skills, design, frameworks, data and coding languages (as opposed to 21st century workplace skills and entrepreneurship). This role is responsible for developing and vetting curriculum, building instructional modules, working with industry partners to adapt materials for use with highly interactive 16-25 year olds, and defining standards and tools that can help students and instructors assess skills and skills gaps.
The ideal candidate has experience in teaching others, ideally non-traditional candidates, including 18-25 year olds, a zest for communicating new teachings, and a passion to problem solve and build tangible outcomes on the path toward supporting low-income young people of color as they improve their skills, deepen their strengths and move toward higher education, better paying jobs, and new careers. The best candidate has industry experience in front end software development, experience with multiple current programming languages, and a good understanding for how to teach many core skills.
