The Company 
 
At Springboard, we’re on a mission to bridge the world’s skills gap, offering transformative online education in data science, UI/UX design, machine learning, and coding. Our courses may be tech-enabled, but we're ultimately human-centric: each student taps into a vast community throughout their time with us, engaging with fellow students, industry-expert mentors, student advisors, and career coaches, the goal of which is to successfully transition students into their dream job. Through this hybrid approach, we’ve helped thousands of learners revamp their careers and, by extension, their lives, with hundreds of top-notch job offers received every year and a near-perfect placement rate for our program graduates.
 
Please note: we are currently at capacity for UI/UX Mentors. However, we'd still love to connect with you! By applying to this role, you will be added to our UI/UX Course Mentor waitlist. We will contact you as soon as we re-open our hiring process.
The Opportunity
 
Springboard runs an online, self-paced Software Engineering Career Track in which participants learn with the help of a curated curriculum and 1-1 guidance from an expert mentor. Our mentor community - the biggest strength of our programs - comprises some of the best software engineering experts in the field.
 
If you are as passionate about mentoring as you are about software engineering, and can give a few hours per week in return for an honorarium, we would love to hear from you.
