Amazon Alexa Mentor

About CareerFoundry:

CareerFoundry is a young, well-funded, and quickly growing Online Education Startup based in Berlin, Germany. We offer eager learners from all over the world the chance to hone their tech skills and jump into a new career in the Tech Industry. Since opening our digital doors in March of 2014, thousands of students from over 50 countries have come to us to kickstart their new careers.

CareerFoundry offers online courses in web development, UX design, UI design, and iOS Swift. Through our in-depth online courses, and by connecting our students with mentors who are experts actively working in the industry, we aim to transform complete beginners into tech professionals in just 6-9 months.

About the Role of Mentor:

CareerFoundry has recently developed a specialized voice design course with a focus on designing and building skills for Amazon Alexa.

The course will be for design professionals with an interest in designing for voice interfaces. You’ll be working alongside students to help them complete a project-based online course which will prepare students to work with voice interface design.

You are passionate about sharing your knowledge and experience, supporting students on their way to becoming UX Designers who specialize in Voice Recognition. We are looking for UX Design mentors/teachers who are interested in mentoring students from all over the globe in this rapidly expanding field – all online.

You have several years experience in UX & UI Design in addition to Voice Interface Design, with a demonstrable track record showcasing your work for a variety of clients and companies. You can show a first class portfolio with rock solid, relevant references to back it up.

Ideally, you will already have gained experience in teaching or 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.

What we’re looking for:

The mentor we’re looking for is a subject matter expert in UX design, and…

  • Is comfortable with the Alexa skill builder interface
  • Has 2-3 years’ experience working with voice design
  • Has classroom/workplace/or online teaching experience
  • has experience collaborating with a remote team
  • is a current UX designer with an up-to-date design portfolio and at least 5 years of experience in the tech industry
  • What you’ll be doing:

    We provide the learning materials, so we need you to accompany, guide and accelerate your mentee’s learning progress.

    You will do this via:

  • Skype calls
  • Video reviews of student’s work
  • Messaging via the CareerFoundry platform
  • The specialization course will take a part-time student 2 months to complete and a full-time student 1 month to complete. It will consist of approximately 15 text-based lessons supported by images, hands-on tasks, bite-sized video tutorials, and links to additional resources or further learning.

    What’s in it for you:

    Apart from the sheer joy of working independently and remotely, there’s also…

  • generous compensation and flexible working hours
  • the thrill of helping people around the world change their lives and cultivate a career they love
  • ongoing professional networking opportunities
  • How to apply

    Email your CV or resume (plus Linkedin page) and a cover letter in English with “Voice Design Mentor” as the subject line to .
