About the Company
Over the past several years, Code First Girls has become the largest provider of free coding courses for women and non-binary individuals. Having trained 65,000+ women in technology education means that we have taught more women to code than the entire UK university undergraduate system!
Our mission is to give more women the opportunity to learn new skills and pursue great careers in tech with our company partners.
Location: Code First Girls offer family-friendly, flexible working arrangements. We are sourcing office space in London this year and so some time in the office will be required and can be discussed in more detail at the interview stage.
What we’re offering
You will be helping to shape our classroom, CFGdegree and +Masters programmes, focused on delivering a great teaching and education experience to make sure our students gain the skills and confidence to work in tech.
