Javascript Teacher for Thousands of Students


Headquarters: Los Angeles, CA

At Upskill, we create video screencasts of software/web development training lessons for thousands of students worldwide. Our students love us because we're passionate about teaching technology and we are good at explaining hard things in simple ways.

We are seeking a part-time (very flexible hours; possibly full-time for the right candidate) Javascript engineer, who has a gift of explaining complex topics in a very clear and simple way. We compensate well because we believe in quality talent and know your time is valuable. 

This is a rare opportunity where you will directly influence and make an impact on thousands of students and their understanding of Javascript.

Job requirements:
- Expert knowledge of pure Javascript (including ES5, ES6, and current versions; framework knowledge is a plus, but not nearly as important to us as a solid foundation in vanilla Javascript).
- Deep understanding of Javascript's inner workings including prototypal inheritance, scope, higher-order functions, etc.
- At least 3 years of full-time Javascript development work.
- Ability to explain technical concepts in simple, clear layman's terms.
- Experience with frameworks such as Backbone, Angular, React, and/or Vue.
- Knowledge of data structures and algorithms.
- CS degree preferred.
- Functional programming experience is a plus.
