We created CareerFoundry to help others build their careers while maintaining personal freedom and flexibility. Our 100% online, flexible, mentor-driven courses are setting the standard for globally accessible technical education. Through our online programs, expert Mentors and Tutors bring students from complete beginners to junior UI designers in 6 months.

We are looking for experienced and passionate UI designers all over the world to join our mentor pool and help define the next generation of design talent by educating and empowering students across the globe.

Our global pool of over 90 mentors and tutors in the web development, iOS mobile development, user experience design, and user interface design fields has grown to include freelancers, entrepreneurs, consultants, and agency directors who passionately guide, motivate, and empower our students to create new careers in the tech industry. We are constantly searching for more teaching enthusiasts like you to join this pool.

Mentoring is more than teaching. It is inspiring newcomers to the field to build, to problem solve, to think like a designer, and to increase their value as professionals. With their expertise from the field, mentors provide guidance and encouragement to their students each step of the way, from sketching their first wireframe, to producing finished, functional interfaces that work across different platforms.

Your Mission

Check out if this is for you:

  • You are passionate about sharing your knowledge and experience, supporting students on their way to becoming UI designers.
  • You have several years’ experience in UI design, with a demonstrable track record showcasing your work for a variety of clients and companies.
  • You can show a first class portfolio with rock solid, relevant references to back it up.
  • Ideally, you will already have gained experience in teaching or you have the right attitude and skills for it: you have time and patience for beginners and a strong desire to guide people along their career path in this field, with knowledge of the latest design tools, a broad network of experts in the field and an in-depth understanding of industry practices.

Most students will be beginners and are looking not only for a mentor’s help and experience to master the necessary skills, but also inspiration and motivation to keep them focused along the way.

As a mentor, you will be reviewing your students’ work on regular basis with a view to how it would fit into an industry-ready portfolio. Additionally, you will do one-on-one video calls to help prepare your students for their entry into their new industry. They’re going to want to know how you got your start in the industry, how you network, how you decide which companies and roles to go for, and much more! To succeed in this role, you need to have a real drive to pass on your wisdom and secrets for success to the next generation of design talent.

Mentors work on a freelance contract with CareerFoundry and are remunerated for portfolio reviews, coaching calls with students, and the occasional coaching call with their tutor partner.

How to Apply

Send a resume, any professional social links, a portfolio and/or personal website/Dribbble/Behance accounts, and a brief cover letter explaining why you’d make a great mentor to mentors@careerfoundry.com.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
