Learn. Love. Code.

At Flatiron School, we're changing education. For more than five years, we've been teaching amazing people how to code and helping them find jobs. We give incredible people the tools to do what they love for a living, and match companies with hires who will do amazing work, take great pride in their craft and view their work as a chance to grow more.

Online Technical Coaching Fellows work directly with Flatiron School students, acting as on-demand instructors while students are working through the curriculum.

In this role, your primary focus will be to guide students through debugging their code while they are working through Flatiron School’s online curriculum and help them to deepen their understanding of programming concepts. Successful Online Technical Coach Fellows can infect, infuse, and inspire students and help them to build their confidence as they work through difficult coding challenges.

The Online Technical Coach Fellow will:

    • Pilot our experimental efforts in how to provide the best experience and most positive outcomes

    • Integrate feedback given by colleagues and managers
  • Work Together
    • Pair with students as you help them through unique code challenges and projects
