Job description

Udacity's mission is to train the world’s workforce in the careers of the future. We partner with leading companies to learn how technology is transforming industries, then teach the critical tech skills that individuals need for new and better jobs, and companies are looking for in their workforce.  With Nanodegree programs ranging from AI and Azure to Data Science, Robotic Process Automation, and Cybersecurity, our online training platform helps even the busiest learners prepare themselves for the most in-demand tech roles. 

Udacity's unique learning model of real-world projects and experts and mentors available 24/7 enables an unprecedented degree of engagement with our students, and we are with them through every step of their learning journey—from the first moment a marketing team member might answer a question, to the penultimate moment when a career team member receives word that a graduate has gotten a new job. Always putting Students First guides us as we continue our mission to bring the highest quality learning possible, to as many learners as we can possibly reach.

Students First - Better Together - Entrepreneurial - Data Driven - Candid and Direct - A Meritocracy

  • Analyze feedback and performance data from user testing and prioritize revisions to improve the content effectiveness and drive student outcomes
  • Assist course instructors with importing videos, text, exercises, and projects to the Udacity library
  • “Train the trainer” - assess instructor skills and teach instructors to become better teachers
  • Lead initiatives and experiments to improve the instructor experience at Udacity

What We Value:

  • A strong technical foundation - software engineering and data analysis skills are critical
  • Prior teaching experience
  • Ability to review educational content from a student perspective, surface areas for improvement, and prioritize revisions
  • Understanding of online learning and content design
  • Excellent English writing skills
  • Exceptional intelligence and problem-solving skills
  • Conscientiousness

Consider applying if your experience is close to what we described above. We look for people with exceptional potential, as we know highest performing teams include people of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and life experiences.
