Bloc is hiring a

Supplemental Mentor

Change people’s lives, in your spare time
 
Bloc offers a flexible, rigorous, and unforgettable learning experience. At Bloc, we combine demanding course material with weekly tutelage from industry professionals to create a powerful learning environment. Our mentors are experienced designers and developers with a passion for sharing their craft.
 
We've already turned hundreds of students into web developers and designers through our apprenticeship model of teaching: learning by building under the guidance of an experienced professional.
 
If you love guiding people to achieve their goals, this will be your dream gig.
 
 
Your Impact
 
As a supplemental mentor, you'll be providing synchronous and asynchronous support to students on their journey to become developers. Since this is a brand new team, you’ll help shape the ways in which we offer support. You might research and prove out a forum-style knowledge base, moderate a Slack channel of student questions, or work one on one with struggling students pair-programming.
 
You’ll definitely be working directly with students, helping them navigate the intricacies of debugging, Git, problem solving, and thinking like an engineer.
 
Our students learn some or all of the following skills and technologies:
* Rails
* HTML, CSS, and Javascript
* JQuery and Angular
* Software Engineering Principles
* UX Design
 
You’ll work remotely and set your own hours based on the needs of our students. Please be able to commit at least 10 hours per week to Bloc.
 
Due to the flexible nature of the role, mentoring does not impede upon your ability to pursue other endeavors. Many of our mentors have other jobs, startups, or freelance projects.
