Lighthouse Labs is a unique and weird place to work. We all care to an almost unhealthy degree about our students, our community and each other. We value transparency and collaboration, and are always striving to find the best ways to train the next generation of developers.
You are a rare breed: a strong programmer who is passionate about mentorship & education. You believe in learning by doing (even if you’re traditionally trained), and you love people almost as much as you love code.
Our community of mentors consists of over 80 kick-ass developers. They are the heart and soul of our program and want nothing more than to see our students succeed - not just in bootcamp, but in their life-long careers.
Are you the person for us? We are looking for the rarest of combinations:
Wants to try their hand in rapidly iterating a curriculum to better suit the 20 people in front of you that are all looking at you skeptically because you claim to be able to teach them so much in so little time that they will actually be employable. Lighthouse Labs is an intense 8-week bootcamp that turns beginners into professional developers. What we are seeking is people who think education can be done better. Our belief is simple: most of what you learn as a developer is on the job. Code is a craft and the best way to work on your craft is to study under people who treat the practice of code like Hattori Hanzō treats the making of swords. We believe in outcome driven education, that is built through a curriculum that is treated like a product i.e. constantly being tested, challenged, improved, and is contributed to by a community of developers who equally care about how to best train the next generation of developers. Our curriculum is built to accommodate different levels at once, using a hands on method, tons of 1 on 1 mentorship and by hiring amazing teacher/developers who want nothing more than to get the best out of ambitious, passionate & driven people. Teaching takes place on site at our downtown location. Instructors are responsible for giving instruction (“lecture”) every morning at 9am for two hours, two to three days per week in addition to mentorship. Mentoring includes handling any and all questions that come up through pair programming and debugging issues with students, which in most cases is more valuable for the students than giving them an answer. Compensation is hourly.

Do you have a passion for community building?
Do you get a kick out of making introductions between people with big ideas?
Are you interested in the start up/ tech scene?
We have a unique community driven approach to education and it’s important for us that our students are immersed in more than just code. That's why we always partner with tech leaders and organizations in the local community. The job of a Community Manager is to act as an ambassador who engages and connects developers, employers, media, and students in their local community.
The Satellite Program is crafted to deliver coding education to communities that otherwise wouldn't have access to it. Using advanced technology and in-person mentorship, Satellite bootcamp creates a seamless and personalized education experience connecting students to awesome devs and instructors across the country. We also offer an Intro to Web course for students who want to learn the fundamentals of coding.

Lighthouse Labs is an intense 8-week coding bootcamp that turns beginners into professional developers. Our belief is that it takes a village or a stone soup to deliver exceptional education. Community is at the core of everything we do, which includes hosting demo days, hackathons, guest speakers and digital literacy events on the regular. We treat our curriculum like a product constantly being tested, challenged, improved, and contributed to by a community of developers who care about training the next generation of developers. This is where you come in. We are currently seeking someone who believes education can be done better to join our team in Toronto as our Admissions Manager.
Lighthouse Labs prides itself on having a strong Admissions Process. We want to ensure that all students accepted into the program are a good fit for the Bootcamp and we don’t just base it on a technical test, as previous coding experience is not a requirement. We value our culture and look for students who thrive in an intensive environment and have the grit, aptitude and the passion to succeed as developers. The job of our Admissions team is to be able to identify if potential students have the factors needed to succeed in our Toronto program.
You are a people person who prides themselves on their high EQ, maturity and ability to communicate and understand a wide variety of personalities. You embrace both your own and other’s quirks and have a secret (or not so secret) love for a certain level of nerdom. You get passionate about what you involve yourself with and are excited by the idea of being out in the community (evening events are a reality) to meet potential students. Your organizational skills go without saying and you are comfortable processing a large number of admin type tasks in a fast paced environment.
So what will you do? Reporting to the GM the Admissions Manager will be the first point of contact for applicants and potential applicants. You will be responsible for handling the entire funnel, from application through to student onboarding. This includes being comfortable dealing with people, paper and process.
If you have previous experience, combined with a natural ability to become our resident expert on identifying good candidates from the outset, we want to hear from you! Please send your resume and cover letter to email@example.com, and don’t forget to tell us a quirky fact about yourself.
