Since 2013, Lighthouse Labs has been helping curious and creative people break into the tech industry with our accelerated, personalized, and outcomes-obsessed education. Our mission is to train the next generation of tech talent in coding by looking at the unique needs of each student and helping them map out and achieve their career goals. A major part of this approach is our robust mentorship program, where students are guided through their learning journey by professionals who work in the industry themselves. 


To keep serving the ever-expanding needs of our students and communities, we’re growing our team of amazing mentors that are so key to student success.

You’ll work directly with students to coach them through any roadblocks they might be experiencing, give them tips on solving problems, and generally provide them with support and advice.

  • Web Development Bootcamp Cohorts
  • Introductory Program Cohorts
  • Junior Developers 


We’re flexible in how we work with mentors, and your schedule is structured according to how many hours you’re available for. Mentors are paid an hourly rate, and are able to work from any time zone. 


What we need from you:

 

Mentors aren’t required to have formal training in their area of expertise. However, a true passion and curiosity for coding, as well as learning and education in general, is a must. 


The following qualifications are all important assets for aspiring mentors:

  • Experience in a range of popular technologies in Web Development.
    • Web Development: Javascript, React, Ruby/Rails, NodeJS, PostgreSQL
