About us

Codecool is a growing network of international coding schools in the EU. Our mission is to reinvent IT education and solve the ever growing IT talent gap of companies by giving coding careers for a wide range of people. Codecool is already present in 4 countries (Hungary, Poland, Romania & Austria). We changed the lives of more than 2000+ students through coding by providing trainings and jobs for them.

We are currently looking for mentors who will join our “online mentor team”, which means you can work on our fully remote, online courses from the comfort of your home. 
Our weekend mentors work between 9 am and 5 pm on Saturdays and Sundays. You will work only on the weekends you choose!

You will work closely with your team leader, other mentors from all our locations, the local country manager, team members and external partners. But on a daily basis your focus will be on our students!

What does it mean to be a mentor in Codecool?

👉Sometimes you will do frontal sessions, but usually you will act as a senior developer who can facilitate the work within the teams or helping students if they are struggling

👉Mentoring – not preaching. Be available to support and guide students while they are solving practical challenges in project-based tasks. They will learn concepts and theory via self-study.

👉Learning and following the tried-and-tested Codecool mastery-based learning model, demand-based curriculum and growth mindset approach. Your ideas are welcome, we believe in continuous improvement. But you don’t need to reinvent the wheel – we already have successfully working models and processes for you at hand.

Why is it great to work with us?

💫You will receive a software engineer salary while working as a mentor 

💫You will work with great, open-minded people, who are here for the same reason: make an impact on others lives and help them to become a programmer!

💫You will be working in a company where flexibility, freedom, ownership are not just meaningless values on the wall - we are living these values every day!

💫We work hard & play hard: we work four days every second week!

💫We are a flat organization, if you have an idea and the motivation to make it happen, there is no bureaucracy that stops you, it will happen!
