Job description

Lambda School is a combination of a school and an investment fund. Lambda School's mission is to find untapped or underutilized talent, and to train that talent for the most in-demand jobs in the world. Lambda School is pioneering a new model of higher education in which the school invests in the students, instead of the other way around. Lambda has just successfully completed its Series B fundraising round with premier tier venture investors. We are operating in 40+ states across the US today and eyeing international expansion opportunities. This is a highly visible, student-facing role on the Learning team, reporting directly to the Director of Lambda X. As the Build Weeks Program Manager, you’ll be responsible for heading the Lambda Build Weeks program, from curriculum development and implementation to career readiness. You will also lead the Build Weeks Student Product Team (engineering, design, and product leaders) and coordinate with project managers, student success and instruction program managers.  Build Weeks is a large-scale internship environment for thousands of students. Over the course of their first 6 months with Lambda, they will spend 25% of their time working in the Build Weeks program to demonstrate mastery with internship-style projects. We are currently looking for someone to help us rebuild this program to be a world-class experience.  The goal of this position is to make the experience as uplifting and engaging as possible while also truly measuring mastery. One significant output of the program will be impressive project work for the hiring process. The internship program should not only assess the students, but provide an experiential learning environment for them to grow.  Your core responsibilities will include: 1) Creating an exciting and engaging project work environment 2) Helping teams produce work that will impress and drive hiring outcomes 3) Measure mastery of curriculum content with an internship experience
