Headquarters: Remote / Worldwide
Microverse is a school that finds the most talented individuals in the world, trains them in software engineering while they work as part of a distributed team and connects them with remote jobs.
At Microverse, there are no classes or physical classrooms. Instead, students learn using a unique approach — by remote pair programming and collaborating with other students in real time, just as they would with colleagues if they were part of a distributed team in a real company.
We have full-time students in 50+ countries and 10,000 applicants per month from 200 countries. Among those applicants, we select the top 0.3% and don’t charge them anything until they get a job.
We are looking for a seasoned software developer with experience teaching and coaching others to help us improve and lead the curriculum and instructional design of our software development program.
As Microverse’s Curriculum Director, you will be responsible for shaping our teacher-less and project/mastery learning-based approach to teaching.
We believe that educational content is a commodity and we work on curating the best content in the world. Your job won’t be to create new content for our curriculum. Instead, you will be designing the processes and projects to provide support, structure, and accountability to train future software developers who are ready to join distributed teams around the world.
This is an opportunity to shape an early-stage company and be part of a movement that is trying to connect millions of people with global opportunities regardless of where they are.
