Lead Mentor - Web Development (PT)

Apply now
Are you an Int-Sr level full stack developer who has a passion for helping train the next generation of devs? Are you a natural ‘teacher’ and are excited about the opportunity to build upon or gain experience in this area? Do you believe the best way of learning is by doing and learning from professionals? Are you eager to surround yourself in a culture of smart people? Do you love the idea of making a difference in the lives of students?

If this sounds like you we’d love to chat about our teaching and mentoring opportunities at Lighthouse Labs!

Lighthouse Labs is an intense 10-week bootcamp that turns beginners into professional developers. Teaching at Lighthouse Labs is secondary to most developers’ primary responsibility. We offer a schedule and a consistent time commitment that works around your current job/ freelancing gigs/ side projects/ startup. (We want you to keep coding and contributing to community!) We are currently seeking mentors who can work daytime shifts for up to 30 hours per week. We encourage you to apply even if you only have a few daytime hours a week to mentor. Mentoring takes place on site at Edison Building and Compensation is hourly.

Mentors are responsible for handling any and all questions that come up. This includes pair programming and debugging issues with them, which in most cases is more valuable for the students than giving them an answer. Code reviewing and helping students refactor their code is also a big part of being a mentor.

Gender, racial and ethnic diversity is important to us so we highly encourage people of diverse backgrounds to apply for this position!

Technical Chops:

Ideally devs will be able to help students build things in most or all the following technologies:
- 2 years of professional experience in software development, with all or most of that time focused in web development
- Preference for open source web languages and tools. At least two of the following: Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Java, Scala, Go
- Have built production-level apps or projects with at least three of the following: AngularJS, Ember, jQuery, Rails, Django, - NodeJS + (Express or Koa), MeteorJS, Elixir + Phoenix, Scala
- Full-stack knowledge, despite being focused or specialized on either side of HTTP
- Strong preference for *nix operating systems
- Can be self-taught or have a formal degree / diploma
- Have deployed your own web application without leveraging a PaaS
- Have worked in a development team using common workflows (eg: Github workflow)
- Have mentored junior developers in a professional or personal capacity


- We encourage speaking and attending workshops and events in your community on Lighthouse Labs behalf.
- Flexible schedule
- Hourly compensation
- We heavily encourage speaking and attending conferences globally, and have an annual budget devoted to it.
- We’re dog friendly :)

If this sounds like you, please apply to teaching@lighthouselabs.ca with your resume and why you’re good for the role!
