About the Role
What we're looking for
We are looking for instructors for our varied program offerings, including our Data Science Fellowship (topics: intro to machine learning with Python), our Data Analytics Bootcamp (topics: using SQL, PowerBI, and Excel for data analytics), and our trainings for corporate partners. This is a remote part-time opportunity.
We are looking for instructors to teach at least one of the following topics:
Business intelligence and data analytics
SQL and database management
Creating data visualizations in Excel, PowerBI, Tableau or Python
Handling and manipulating datasets in Excel, PowerBI, and SQL
Programming fundamentals with Python
Handling and manipulating datasets with Python (Pandas) or R
Data warehousing and storage, ETL, and data engineering
Predictive and inferential statistics
Machine learning and artificial intelligence
Do you have another expertise related to the world of data that is not listed above? Let us know!
Do you have to be a professional trainer/professor to apply?
No! While we value prior experience in education, some of our most successful instructors have come straight from industry! We understand that data science and business analytics are fields where much of the most relevant experience is with those currently employed as analysts, data scientists, machine learning engineers, or managers. If you have a strong mastery of the tools acquired at a high-achieving industry team and have a passion for helping others, we can help you to transfer your knowledge into a potent educational experience for our learners.
What you'll do
Eskwelabs has a unique pedagogical focus on project-based learning, meaning that instead of teaching a list of topics, you will design a project that students work through in order to learn the subject matter while providing a real-life example of relevant project work. Our students love to learn through application, and building out their portfolios is the best way Eskwelabs has found to teach the fast-moving data skills of the 21st century.
You will design the "project sprint" that students will go through. The easiest way to do this is to model it on a real project that you have already performed in your recent experience, and to reconstruct it as a learning experience. Although project sprint durations vary widely, a typical benchmark is 10-30 hours spread out over 2 weeks.
You will provide live video instruction to walk the students through your project sprint. The hours will depend on the program (bootcamps run in the evening, corporate training run during the day).
You will have to abide by the Eskwelabs quality standards, and receive support from the Eskwelabs education team to structure your sprint in order to be educational and fun for all involved. Eskwelabs rates will include material preparation time.
You have mastered a topic in a professional setting.
You have a minimum of 2 years of experience in machine learning and data engineering OR minimum of 4 years in other topics.
You are a dynamic speaker with energy and passion for educating others.
You are able to break down and explain technical subjects in plain language.
You are able to motivate others, command skills and you are approachable.
You have prior experience teaching students or managing teams.
You have experience applying machine learning or business intelligence for social impact projects.
