Cybersecurity Lead Instructor

The Company
Springboard offers high-quality workforce training for the digital economy. Our courses have helped thousands of learners all over the world prepare for new careers, using a unique approach that combines project-based online learning with 1:1, personalized mentorship and coaching from industry experts.

The Opportunity
Cybersecurity is a fast-growing sector that affects virtually every aspect of our lives. With large-scale cybersecurity attacks becoming more prevalent, there has never been a better time to build solutions in the field. Our conversations with hiring managers highlight a strong jobs-skills gap in the sector — companies need much more talent than is currently available.

We’re building a world-class online course to teach students the skills they need to enter the field and become the next generation of cybersecurity problem-solvers.

We’re looking for a knowledgeable, creative subject matter expert to spearhead the development of our new Cybersecurity course. As Lead Instructor, you’ll collaborate with our Instructional Designers, and a team of experts (which you’ll help assemble), to develop resources, design projects, and craft a cohesive curriculum which will teach students all they need to land and hold a job in the cybersecurity space.

Over the next few months, you’ll:

  • Set the overall direction for the course. This includes both the vision for how the course is taught, as well as high-level curriculum structure
  • Collaborate with our Instructional Designers and other subject matter experts to create a detailed, best-in-class curriculum
  • Be “the face of the course” - appear in videos on the course page and within the curriculum 


  • Are an experienced cybersecurity professional with a background in Security Engineering; you (a) have extensive experience with Linux, Windows, and iOS; (b) bring real-world experience working in Systems Security, Network Security, Applied Cryptography, Logs and Detection, Governance/Risk and Compliance, Security Strategy or Cyber Threat Intelligence; (c) have subject matter expertise with common operating system internals, network packet capture tools such as Wireshark, Network Miner, and network discovery tools such as NMAP; (d) hold current Cisco CCNA (CCNA Security and higher desirable); additional industry certifications from Cisco, Microsoft, CompTIA, EC-Council, SANS are preferred
  • Have a vision for how cybersecurity should be taught; bonus points for concrete strategies you’d like to apply
  • Are an incredible teacher - either you’ve taught before or have a passion for teaching!
  • Are a structured, MECE thinker, and have excellent verbal & written communication skills
