Job description

No teaching experience required (and do it while keeping your day job).

The Vue.js Instructor for Silicon Villas will design and teach online software course(s) for a small group of English-speaking developers in Italy.

Silicon Villas is a nonprofit fostering international collaboration to bring high-value technology jobs to southern Italy. We support Italian developers through training and mentoring, and connect them to remote work with US-based technology companies.

Responsibilities of the role include:

  • Designing and delivering a multipart ‘Introduction to Vue.js’ course series
  • Creating, giving, and reviewing course-related assignments
  • Answering students’ course-related questions
  • Providing 1:1 coaching to students (availability permitting)
  • Quarterly faculty meetings (lasting approximately 90 minutes) via teleconference

Rate and time commitment

$100-175/hour, depending on experience. This is an independent contractor position. The Introduction to Vue.js course will involve at most approximately 4 hours of in-class time and 4 hours maximum of paid curriculum development and prep time, spread over a 4 weeks, with more classes possible beyond that.

Prerequisites

  • The ability to work part-time (approximately 5 hours a month).
  • You are an experienced, U.S.-based software developer currently working in Vue.js development in the Silicon Valley/San Francisco Bay Area. This work is meant to be done in addition to your day job, not instead of it.
  • At least 1 year of Vue.js experience (and 3-4 years JS), and the ability to explain the inner workings of the software + provide practical examples
  • A somewhat flexible schedule and the ability to accommodate class times that take into account time differences between California and Italy
  • Some teaching experience, but if not, a genuine interest in teaching, along with enthusiasm for Vue.js (and other topics you may teach)
  • Proactive about cultivating feedback on an ongoing basis. You welcome and incorporate feedback in your work, and the work of your students.
  • Comfortable teaching on a remote platform (using tools like showing your desktop and video conferencing) as a member of a virtual team, from your own home/office with team-members that are spread across the US and Europe.
  • Open to the possibly of teaching additional topics, which may include other JavaScript frameworks (such as React, Angular and Node) and Intro to Mobile Development.
