Accessible Tech in Employment 24hour Hack needs mentors for our 2017 event. Can you help as a mentor during the weekend?
Mentors set the tone for the hackathon. The role of the Mentor is to be a resource for the teams during the duration of the hackathon. Help teams define workflow, generate relevant ideas, problem-solve, understand open datasets and develop final pitches. Most importantly, be helpful and encouraging!
Ideally mentors have minimum 2-3 years experience on a software development team, have mentored other developers, are familiar with accessibility and have participated in at least one hackathon. We are looking for mentors that are software developers (mobile, front-end, back-end), visual designers, UX/UI/AI designers, Quality Assurance testers and product/service/marketing experts. Mentors should be able to participate in both days of the Hackathon.
If you’d like to get involved, we’d love to hear from you! You can also make a recommendation – just email or call us – details in Contact section.
