The days of learning data science by passively consuming video lectures are over. Real learning takes place when a student’s hands are on the keyboard, writing code, working with data, and solving problems. If you agree, keep reading!
DataCamp is building the future of data science education. Our students get real hands-on experience by completing self-paced, interactive data science courses from the best instructors in the world, right in the browser. In fact, over one million students around the world have completed nearly 50 million DataCamp exercises to date!
Behind every great DataCamp course are the passionate folks who built it. We decided early on that the best way for us to maximize value for our students is to build courses in partnership with top companies and experts in the data science community. That’s why our course library is packed with courses from companies like Continuum Analytics and RStudio and data scientists like Andy Müller (scikit-learn), Bryan Van de Ven (Bokeh) and Hadley Wickham (ggplot2, dplyr).
About the Role
As a Curriculum Lead, it’s your responsibility to map out the future of our curriculum, to build a network of the best data science instructors in the world, and to work closely with those instructors to create detailed specs for new courses before handing things over to our Content Development team.
In order to be effective in this role, you must continuously hone your skills as both a data scientist and an educator, while remaining deeply connected to the data science community. For this reason, we like to think of the role in three parts.
