Software Engineer to Create Educational Content

Location United States
Posted 15-July-2019
Description


Upskill is a streaming video library of computer science and JavaScript screencasts. We emphasize high quality, accurate instruction explained in very simple, easy-to-understand, layman language.

We are seeking a seasoned software engineer to create high-quality educational content on any of the following categories:

JavaScript (deep understanding of ES5/ES6, Node, as well as React, Vue, and other frameworks) Or, skills in machine learning (TensorFlow.js, C++, Python, linear algebra)

This is a fun and exciting position - you get to explain how things work and you'll only be asked to teach topics you're most experienced and comfortable with! You should have a deep passion for teaching and passing along your wisdom to future developers. This is an opportunity to impact the next generation of programmers as your lessons will directly reach many thousands of students.

You should have experience with screencasts/tutorials or teaching/mentoring, in general. You should have a passion for explaining complex concepts in clear, simple language, and anticipate what a beginner is thinking at any given time, without overwhelming them. You ideally have a background in computer science, understanding computers down to the electrons and transistors, and have completed books like SICP/Algorithms, etc. Bonus points if you are a fan of Richard Feynman and appreciate his teaching style.

This is a fun and flexible opportunity to earn extra, consistent income for explaining/talking about things you love and already know very well. Compensation is competitve. Instructors typically use Screenflow, OBS, or similar screencast software to record their screen/voice. If your lessons are great quality, you will be offered an ongoing arrangement so that you can earn a monthly income consistently.

To be considered for the position:

If you're interested, and would like your application to be prioritized, please include a short (~5 minute) screencast teaching any complex topic you desire within the domain of either JavaScript or Machine Learning. Any screen recording software is fine and you will not be judged on audio/video quality. This helps us evaluate how well you can use simple, engaging, beginner-friendly language, no matter how complex the topic. Please also include your resume. Contact us if you have any questions about applying.

Flexible - you set your own schedule and work from home or abroad. Great source of additional income. Get paid to talk about things you're excited about.
