Facilitator (US) - Data & Digital (Freelance)

Job description


We are Decoded and we make technology education human. We help some of the largest and most technologically progressive organizations in the world up-skill and inspire their employees through training programs and workshops. Our mission is to be the world’s greatest technology educator, and to change the way people interact with technology. Curious about our style of teaching? Check out our Demystifying the Digital World talk to get a taste of how we do, what we do.

Our Data & Digital Leadership Facilitators run short-form workshops in Data Science, Cybersecurity and Programming. You will work with senior leaders from every sector, helping shape their understanding of technology and ability to effectively engage with technical teams. You can work remotely from anywhere in the EST + 2 time zones. 

When applying please bear in mind the following:

  • We work in an area flooded with tech buzzwords (e.g. AI, machine learning, blockchain) — in your application show us how you would explain a buzz-wordy term to a room full of people that ‘get it’ but might have never ‘done it.’

  • We really enjoy videos, and portfolios of work that show us your skills (make it fun)

  • We deliver training that is technology and innovation focused — see if your application can reflect this



As a Data Facilitator at Decoded, you’re ultimately accountable for:

  • Delivering our productized workshops to learners, usually alongside a co-facilitator

  • Contextualizing our varied content to specific clients and sectors

  • Acting on feedback from peers, learners and the Decoded team



  • Reviewing exercises and other learning materials before a session

  • Learning about your learners and the businesses they work for

  • Familiarizing yourself with the course structure and content, proactively filling gaps in your knowledge

  • Self assessing your skills and taking up suitable training and professional development opportunities

  • Preparing the virtual learning environment: virtual room setup, laptop setup and other tasks as required


  • Delivering a 10/10 learning experience in each workshop

  • Communicating complex technical concepts and techniques with energy, focus and patience

  • Engaging and captivating the attention of a room of busy working professionals

  • Collaborating with your co-facilitator to give each session a consistent and balanced pace and tone

  • Handling and resolving challenging learning moments with learners

  • Facilitating the learning journey for your audience, and leaving no-one behind whilst also providing stimulation for advanced learners

  • Enabling an inclusive, collaborative and respectful learning environment


You are comfortable public speaking and educating any audience — from teenagers to CEOs. You are confident in your skills at communicating data, coding or cybersecurity related sessions. You are in love with technology and learning.

Our Facilitators are a community of technology education superstars. They are confident yet humble, and are passionate about giving their learners confidence in the skills required for the future of work. They are founders and entrepreneurs. Physicists and philosophers. Technologists who believe in human potential. Data Scientists that love stories.

Whatever their background, they are always:

  • Empathetic

  • Obsessed about learning and teaching

  • Programming literate

  • Curious about new technologies

  • Critical thinkers

You will be allocated work and supported by the Facilitator Manager and Product team.


Monthly, you'll provide your availability and you will be allocated a varying amount of work by the Facilitation Manager depending on Decoded’s delivery needs, which you can accept or reject. Please note - The amount of work available may vary widely and is not guaranteed.
