About Us

We created CareerFoundry to help others build their careers while maintaining personal freedom and flexibility. Our 100% online, flexible, mentor-driven courses are setting the standard for globally accessible technical education. Through our online programs, expert mentors and tutors bring students from complete beginners to junior UX designers in 8 months.

We are looking for new or experienced, and most of all, passionate UX designers all over the world to join our tutor and mentor body and help define the next generation of design talent by educating and empowering students across the globe. We are currently actively seeking applicants from EU and US-based timezones.

Tutoring and mentoring go beyond teaching. We want you to inspire newcomers to the field to build, to problem solve, to think like a UXer, and to increase their value as professionals. With knowledge and expertise from the field, you will provide guidance and encouragement to their students each step of the way, from sketching their first user flow, to producing working prototypes.

Your Mission

Check out if this is for you:

  • You are passionate about sharing your knowledge and experience, supporting students on their way to becoming UX Designers.
  • You have several years’ experience in UX & UI Design, with a demonstrable track record showcasing your work for a variety of clients and companies - great, you’d make a perfect mentor! If you’re new to the field but still eager to share, you might make a great tutor.
  • You can show us a first class portfolio and online presence, and showcase past clients or projects, and what you’ve learned from these past experiences
  • Ideally, you have already acted as a teacher, mentor or coach - in this field or another, and either formally or throughout your professional career . Or, you can show us you have the right attitude and skills for it: you have time and patience for beginners and a strong desire to guide people along their career path in this field, with knowledge of the latest design tools, a broad network of experts in the field and an in-depth understanding of industry practices.

Your Role

As a mentor, you will be reviewing your students’ work on regular basis with a view to how it would fit into an industry-ready portfolio. Additionally, you will do one-on-one video calls to help prepare your students for their entry into their new industry. They’re going to want to know how you got your start in the industry, how you network, how you decide which companies and roles to go for, and much more! To succeed in this role, you need to have a real drive to pass on your wisdom and secrets for success to the next generation of design talent.

As a tutor, you’ll be providing daily support to students completing a CF course, as well as regularly reviewing student projects submitted through the CareerFoundry platform, checking for fundamental understanding of concepts and tools, and suggesting supplemental learning materials and personal insights in areas where students are struggling

Tutors and mentors work on a freelance contract with CareerFoundry and are remunerated for tasks approved, portfolio reviews, and coaching calls with students, depending on which role fits you best.

How to Apply

Send a resume, any professional social links, a portfolio and/or personal website/Dribbble/Behance accounts, and a brief cover letter explaining why you’d make a great tutor or mentor to mentors@careerfoundry.com.

We look forward to hearing from the educators who will be guiding the next generation of designers here at CF.
