Job Description

We are Multiverse, a tech scaleup with a social mission. We’re creating a diverse group of future leaders by building an outstanding alternative to college and corporate training.

In June 2022, we announced our $220m Series D raise, making Multiverse a mission-driven unicorn. This funding will help us to accelerate our growth in the US, where we’re committed to tackling the toughest challenges facing those who seek jobs - and those who provide them.


In our first year in the US, we launched over 20 apprentice cohorts at some of the best companies in America, including the likes of Verizon, Visa, Cisco and Box. Globally, we work with over 500 clients and we’ve been recognized as one of the fastest-growing businesses in Europe.

Join us on our journey to democratizing access to the best careers and learning opportunities.

The Opportunity

As a Cohort Coach, you will be responsible for delivering our Software Engineering curriculum, working with highly engaged individuals as they accelerate their careers in software engineering.

Your role will be a mixture of small group workshops, and personalized coaching where you'll be supporting apprentices across incredibly exciting businesses to become the next generation of software engineering leaders.

Overview of the Software Engineering Cohort Coach:

The Software Engineering Cohort Coach will provide individual and small group coaching, project support, and innovative hands-on practical workshops for the remaining months while apprentices are on the job.

The Cohort Coach will work with apprentices’ managers to understand the needs of their role and how to best support their professional development.

Specifically, you will:

  • You have strong knowledge of fullstack software engineering. Particularly, JavaScript, Node, React, and SQL and broader technical topics (Cloud, IT, UX, etc.). Proficiencies in other languages (e.g, Java, Python) are a plus.

  • Have 3+ years of professional experience, where you have learned to navigate organizational dynamics such as managing up and excellent communication with all stakeholders. You should be able to model these skills for apprentices as you guide their on-the-job experience.

  • Be passionate about developing others and love the detail of developing an effective learning experience.

  • Believe in the principles of applied learning: it’s all about developing the knowledge, skills, and behaviors in a way that can be used in a real context, immediately.

  • Believe passionately in economic and social mobility and the development of talent across all backgrounds.

  • Have the ability and desire to teach remotely when provided with all necessary technology (laptop, second screen, headset, etc).

  • Be a people-first leader and are excited to continually iterate on what you deliver to our apprentices in an environment that evolves with our business growth.


General Responsibilities of the Software Engineering Cohort Coach:

  • Build a vibrant community of people from many backgrounds and ensure a motivating and supportive virtual environment.

  • Take full responsibility for the progress that your cohorts of young people make through their apprenticeship.

  • You are a strong communicator, an independent problem solver, flexible and resilient with a strong sense of accountability and follow-through; our program content and structure may change to better suit the needs of apprentices, so you must be adaptable and constantly open to iteration.

  • Work with your apprentices’ managers to understand the needs of their role and how to best support their professional development.

  • Work internally with Multiverse colleagues to ensure first class delivery and program quality.

  • Monitor the progress of apprentices through data collection and sharing insights with the Program team and partners to facilitate the next steps in the learning journey.

  • Help iterate and further build the program.

Who you are:

  • You have a passion for all things software engineering and professional development.

  • You have drive, ambition, and are excited by being part of growing our US business!

  • You are a software engineer or studied computer science and went into a career outside of the field.

  • OR, you may be a classroom teacher who has become familiar with software engineering/coding on the side.

The base salary range for this role is $85,000 - $115,000.

What employees are saying

Especially since our work spans many time zones (US West Coast to UK) there's a lot of flexibility since there are different folks that work together at different times. I can plan early days for when I need to connect with folks that are ahead of me (time zone-wise) or later on days that I'm working with US folks and doing heads-down work. I appreciate that my leaders know that I will get my work done and if I need to go to appointments or take time mid-day, that is supported.
