Are you a machine learning developer looking for a new challenge? Join iO Academy as a part-time trainer.
We run a range of coding courses which help people develop their careers in tech. As our machine learning trainer you’ll mainly focus on teaching, but will also work with the other iO trainers to keep the ML curriculum up-to-date and ensure you’re prepared for every class.
We have developed a new 12 week data science and machine learning curriculum, for part time remote learners to upskill from software development into data science/machine learning. The weekly teaching time will be 7 hours split across 3 evenings, so this is a role that could be balanced with an existing full time job. We are looking for someone to join us on a fixed term contract basis to refine and deliver the first course, with the possibility of an on-going contract to maintain the curriculum and regularly deliver the course throughout the year.
The most important thing is that you’ve got real world, in-depth experience in data science or machine learning, and want to do something a bit different to help give people a new direction.
You’ll have worked as a professional data scientist or machine learning developer, with a deep understanding of data analysis, statistical methods and machine learning. You will have helped support others with problem solving and be happy explaining complex ideas in easy-to-digest ways. You will have experience with coding and the use of statistical computing software. The course has already been designed and is ready to teach. The coding portions of the course have been coded in Python, so you will preferably have experience with Python or will be comfortable with switching to this language for the purpose of this course.
The course curriculum spans foundational maths and statistics, data analysis, visualisations, cleaning data, linear algebra, machine learning model selection, optimisation and application to a range of real world datasets. It will be essential that you are confident in at least a handful of these aspects, and keen to fill in the gaps for any parts you have not yet mastered.
The most important thing is that you’re a friendly, motivated team player who wants to help people. We’re all about changing lives, and hope you are too.
We are all about people. We train people of all ages and backgrounds to code, giving them everything they need to know to land their first job as a junior software developer. We are now launching a range of upskilling courses to help people further develop their careers in tech. We work hard to make sure our courses are as inclusive as possible, and help to make positive change in the tech industry. Our graduates consistently tell us that their time at the iO Academy was one of the best in their lives.
Our small classes mean you’ll get to know your students really well, and you’ll be part of a welcoming and fun team. Although the students will be remote, you are welcome to work from our offices or your own home.
Our offices are based in a historic building in beautiful Bath. It’s a 10 minute walk from the train station, with incredible views over the city and a lovely big garden. We’ve got break-out rooms with comfy sofas, books, board games and Mario Kart, and a big kitchen with tea, coffee, toast and fruit.
We pride ourselves on having created a happy place to work with a strong sense of value and purpose. You’ll be working alongside award-winning trainers and mentors in a team of people who love what they do. And you’ll be making a genuine difference to people’s lives.
Just send a CV and a cover letter saying why you’d like to work with us and describing a project you have worked on that required relevant skills. We’d love to hear from you.
Must be eligible to live and work in the UK.
