¡We are looking for an English For Developers Teacher Assistant!

Laboratoria is a social enterprise that gives young low-income women a career in tech. We do this by looking for talent where no one else is looking for. We identify young women who haven’t accessed quality education and train them to become the most awesome web developers. We take pride in the fact that over 75% of our students secure a job, allowing them to triple their income and kickstart a career in technology. By 2020, we aim to become the leading source of female tech talent, from Latin America to the world.

At the core of what we do is an immersive 5-month coding bootcamp, followed by a continuing education program. Though we have similarities with other coding academies, our talent pool, our social purpose and our commitment for a comprehensive, accountable and job-oriented education sets us apart. At Laboratoria we focus equally on building “life skills” (e.g. resilience, communication and teamwork) as we do on programming skills. That’s why we have trained psychologists working side-by-side with software engineers. Moreover, we have embraced agile principles and values into education - in what we call the Agile Classroom - in order to prepare our students for working in the ever-agile tech scene.
