Major League Hacking (MLH) is rethinking technical education for the modern world. Now that every company is a technology company, we need faster and more effective ways to train the talent that everyone depends on. Our unique hands-on, community-driven approach has helped more than 500,000 technologists worldwide launch their careers and stay up-to-date with the latest trends. If you're passionate about technology, education, and the future of work – this this the place for you!
The MLH Fellowship is an educational internship alternative, where aspiring technologists have the opportunity to collaborate on real-world software projects under the guidance of expert mentors. We truly believe that this program can change the face of technology education and hiring, helping computer science students learn the skills that they’re not getting in the classroom, but are necessary to join the workforce.
As a Pod Leader in the MLH Fellowship, you'll be the day-to-day contact for a group of 10-20 MLH Fellows called a "Pod". You'll help them gain the most skills as they participate in the program, support them technically with their projects, and build a community within your pod.
This is a great role for someone hoping to become an Engineering Manager or gain skills as a technical lead.
Key Duties & Responsibilities:
Run regular pod meetings. Our MLH Fellows meet several times per week to discuss projects, priorities, and learnings. You'll be responsible for leading these meetings at either 18:00 or 22:00 GMT.
Assign Projects. Working with our program staff, you'll determine which Fellows will be best suited to each project or issue that we have as potential learning experiences and ensure the Fellows take them on.
Ongoing Project Management & Reporting. You’ll work with your fellows to ensure they’re making progress on the curriculum and their assigned projects. You’ll report back regularly, ensuring our program staff are in the loop.
Building relationships. Much of the MLH Fellowship is about connections with the Fellowship Team, you'll build strong relationships with each of your Fellows to help them grow.
Creating community. As the primary MLH staff in the pod, you'll help the Pod not just feel like a class period, but a community of people learning together. You'll lead various activities to make this happen and continually help build trusting relationships amongst fellows.
