About us

Codecool is a growing network of international coding schools in the EU. Our mission is to reinvent IT education and solve the ever-growing IT talent gap of companies by giving coding careers to a wide range of people. Codecool is already present in 4 countries (Hungary, Poland, Romania & Austria). We changed the lives of more than 2000 students through coding by providing trainings and jobs for them.

 

Your role

For a start, you would join our “offline” mentor team which means you will work with your teammates and students live, on our campus, in our great office in the city center! If you are tired of table tennis, foosball, and darts, from time to time you have the opportunity to work from home. Later on, there is a possibility to switch to our online courses and work fully remotely.

Your main task and your focus will be on our students! Support them, mentoring them, coaching them, do everything helping them to gather the knowledge to be successfully chosen for a junior position. You will work closely with your team leader, other mentors from all our locations, the local country manager, team members, and external partners.

 

Your tasks

👉Supervising and enhancing existing learning projects about the whole spectrum of a junior full-stack developer. That helps if you have basic knowledge of our tech stack and a deeper understanding of some topics (JS, NodeJS, React, Java, C#, .Net, Spring)

👉Mentoring – not preaching. Help students learn via interactive workshops and be available to support and guide them while they are solving practical challenges in project-based tasks. They will learn concepts and theory via self-study.

👉Learning and following the tried-and-tested Codecool mastery-based learning model, demand-based curriculum, and growth mindset approach. We have successfully working models and processes for you at hand, however your ideas are welcome, we really believe in continuous improvement.
