Job Description

At Mimo, we believe that coding can open doors to careers and opportunities like few other skills. That’s why we’ve rallied around the common goal of making coding universally accessible.

With the launch of cohort-based programs, we’re well on our way toward becoming the world’s largest tech school. To help millions more learn to code and eventually become developers, we’re now looking for Coding Instructor to join our 9-person Instructors team.

What you’ll be doing

  • You’ll lead two cohorts of up to 20 students each in our 6-month program, constantly preparing and holding live sessions and individual 1:1s with students.
  • You’ll put our students first and create individualized learning plans based on our curriculum for every student.
  • You’ll review code, prepare course material, give feedback on assignments, and answer open questions, keeping them engaged along their learning journey.

You’ll thrive in this role if

  • You’re a developer’s advocate. You enjoy passing on your coding experience to others and sparking their curiosity in learning how to code.
  • You’re fluent in front-end development. You feel at home in the JavaScript world and have familiarity with modern frontend frameworks like React. Plus, you’re a crackerjack in HTML and CSS.
  • You’re an avid learner yourself. You always seek to improve through student and team feedback and data insights. You’re comfortable sharing and receiving meaningful feedback.
  • You’re a strong communicator. You enjoy speaking in front of an audience and intuitively engage students in an upbeat way.
  • You genuinely care about our students. You’re ready to go the extra mile for our students, support them on every step of their journey and make them believe in their developer career path.
  • You’re a patient teacher. You know that students start at different places and learn at their individual paces. You enjoy adapting your explanations to them and effectively scaffolding their learning plans to help them succeed.
  • You’re a remote-work advocate. You value asynchronous, written communication and express yourself concisely.

How we work

  • We’re a distributed team working between the time zones of Eastern Standard Time (UTC -5) and Eastern European Time (UTC +3) for collaboration.
  • If you’re located outside of this time zone range and want to move to the company’s official headquarters in Austria, we’ll handle the work permit process and cover travel expenses.
  • If you prefer to work outside of your home, we offer a physical location in Vienna and co-working stipends in other cities.
  • We love working async, so you get to set your own schedule.
  • For this role, we ask you to be available for live sessions and office hours in the evening (Eastern Standard Time).

Our global perks and benefits

  • We have a remote-first mentality and give everyone a home-office budget.
  • 25 days of paid vacation days in addition to your local public holidays and paid sick leave.
  • We sponsor team retreats throughout Europe and remote-friendly activities, like hack weeks and coffee breaks.
  • To further develop yourself, use our $720 personal growth budget for books, conferences, courses, or anything else that supports your personal development.
  • To give our menstruating team members the time off to cater to their health when needed during their menstrual cycle, we offer up to 2 days of paid menstrual leave per month.
  • Your annual salary will range from $51k to $64k gross annually (or $65k to $82k for contractors). Your salary will automatically increase by 5% yearly, no questions asked.
  • The chance to build a world-class product, positively impact millions of aspiring developers, and be a virtual owner of the company with equity (phantom stock).
