Can you speak the language of the internet? Y’know — Java, Ruby, SQL.

No doubt the demand for computer programmers will continue to grow, so that means more and more people need to learn how to speak the digital language. Are you already fluent? Then you’ve come to the right place.

Codecademy, an online education platform specializing in teaching computer programming skills, is looking  to fill remote, part-time coaching positions — an Advisor and a Project Reviewer.

As an Advisor, your role will be to teach various coding skills to those enrolled in the online program.

You must be over the age of 18 and live in one of these states:  California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington.
