Text title: About The Role!
Our curriculum is built to accommodate different levels at once, using a hands on method, tons of 1-on-1 mentorship through amazing teacher/developers who want nothing more than to get the best out of ambitious, passionate & driven people.Mentors are responsible for handling any and all questions that come up. This includes pair programming and debugging issues with them, which in most cases is more valuable for the students than giving them an answer. Code reviewing and helping students refactor their code is also a big part of being a mentor.Teaching at Lighthouse Labs is secondary to most developers' primary responsibility, and can be for 6-20 hours a week.
