Contract Description

About The Role

Are you a data scientist or machine learning developer searching for a new challenge? Join us at iO Academy as a part-time trainer.

You'll teach our part-time data science and machine learning bootcamp to classes of around 12 trainees, helping them re-skill into data analytics, data science or machine learning roles. The course is delivered live online over 12 weeks with the weekly teaching time consisting of seven hours split across three 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 rolling contract basis to run the course regularly throughout the year.

As a machine learning trainer you'll mainly focus on teaching classes but will also work alongside our other iO trainers to help keep the curriculum up-to-date as well as preparing and developing course content. Above all else, we need someone with in-depth, real world experience in data science and/or machine learning, who is enthusiastic about helping others land their dream tech job.

About you

You'll have worked as a professional data scientist or machine learning developer and have gained 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 Python and the use of statistical computing software.

The pre-existing 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 course also touches on the use of Git and Github, AWS and Tableau.

Ideally you’ll have experience teaching, training or mentoring others, and be confident delivering content to groups of learners and clearly explaining complex concepts. It's vital that you're a friendly, motivated team player who wants to help people. We're all about changing lives, and hope you are too!
