Vidcode sells creative coding software, curriculum and teacher training courses to schools, US districts and global partners.

We need a well-rounded curriculum lead to take our curriculum efforts to the next level; someone who can write our 9th, 10th and 11th JavaScript or Python courses; build a 70 hour professional development course; create creative virtual reality tracks. The right candidate will work with the founders on creating coursework for upcoming school years. The ideal candidate will have multiple years experience teaching in the classroom, an understanding of school and government standards (common core, math etc) and be a proficient programmer.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Experience teaching in the classroom
  • Experience writing curriculum for schools
  • Proficiency in JavaScript and Python
  • Love for creative coding (VR, Processing etc)
  • Ability to hire and train staff
  • Passionate about getting teen girls and other underrepresented students to study computer science
