The Gig

We’re looking for mentors for our online Python and R- based Data Science Workshops – a novel approach to Data Science education that combines the flexibility of online learning with the effectiveness of one-on-one expert guidance.

Our mentor community – the biggest strength of our programs – has some of the best experts in the field. As a mentor, your role will be to ensure that your mentees have a great learning experience. You will have weekly video calls with students – to help them set and achieve learning goals, answer subject matter questions, provide feedback on project work etc. Mentoring is flexible – can be done online, at a time of your convenience for a few hours/week – and pays a per student per month honorarium.

The Ideal Candidate

  • Is as passionate about teaching Data Science as about Data Science itself.
  • Is proficient at the tools and concepts covered in at least one of the Python and R- based workshops.
  • Has empathy and excellent communication skills.
