  • Assessing how the SME’s expertise can best be utilized, and directing the work of other team members to effectively deliver high quality content in a timely manner.

  • Tracking the creation and external review of all elements of the course, and creating them yourself if need be.
  • Working closely with a production and visual design team to record videos, add visual design and deliver high-quality multimedia content to support the curriculum.


  • Technical background in math and programming at a level sufficient to follow and successfully complete an online course in machine learning, such as DLAI’s Deep Learning Specialization.
  • Knowledge of instructional design best practices as well as experience designing and teaching technical courses.
  • Graduate degree in STEM / AI / CS or equivalent industry experience in areas like software development, machine learning or data science.
