HACKTIV8 is a “web development bootcamp” that transforms beginners into
full-stack web developers in 16 weeks. We help beginners with little or no
technical background to reach a level of proficiency that allows them to get
paid and continue learning on the job as junior web developers. We believe
anyone can learn to code as long as they fully immerse themselves and follow our
three agreements of integrity, kindness and whole self.
At HACKTIV8, Instructor lead by example, demonstrating their passion for
learning and their commitment to a high standard of excellence. Being an
Instructor at Hacktiv8 is more like being a adventure guide or triathlon coach
than a follow-the-textbook style instructor. Instructor lead discussions, guide
inquiry, pair program with students, support students in their projects and
challenges, and provide feedback to students and each other.
Successful Hacktiv8 Instructors are also able to emphasize the meta-skills and
core concepts of software engineering, teaching students more than just how to
code - teaching them how to learn. We think teaching is challenging, meaningful,
and exceptionally fun. If you're up to the task, come join us.
