TFA 2014 Corps & Computer Science Fellows final application, posted 2/14/2014

2/20/2014 Deadline

Become a Computer Science Fellow in NYC or teach STEM in one of 48 locations nationally, with Teach For America.

Despite the incredible opportunities presented to students by a strong foundation in computer science, the subject is only offered in one out of ten high schools in America. Access to computer science education is empowering: five of the fastest growing occupations are in computing, and computing-related jobs have among the highest entry-level salaries. We have a tremendous opportunity and role to play in ensuring that students in low income communities have access to CS. Although relatively few schools offer CS courses, opportunity gaps persist, impacting the diversity of the tech sector. Black students make up just two percent of all AP computer science test-takers, and the single largest black-white scoring gap among all AP exams is in computer science.

Apply to the 2014 Teach For America Corps and become a Computer Science Fellow in NYC. Teach For America has teamed up with National Science Foundation, and the NYC Department of Education to support a new Computer Science Fellows initiative in New York City. Teach For America will train and support a group of computer science teachers in New York City during the 2014-2015 school year with hopes to expand our pilot to other regional sites. This is where you come in! We need your talent and leadership to ensure that all kids have access to computer science education. Don’t have a background in computer science? We’re looking for teachers in STEM and all K-12 academic subjects to teach in our 48 regions across the country.

Teach For America’s FINAL application deadline is on February 20th, 2014. To learn more and apply, visit us at www.teachforamerica.org and follow TFA’s STEM Initiative @TFA_STEM. To indicate interest in the Computer Science Fellows initiative, email Hillary Wool, Regional Director of Recruitment – New York State, at hillary.wool@teachforamerica.org.

About Teach For America: Teach For America is developing a movement of leaders who will help drive change at every level of our education system toward the goal of justice and equity. These leaders start their paths as corps members who teach for two years in urban and rural high-need communities and help students make the academic progress that expands their opportunities. Deeply affected by their teaching experience, our alumni continue to advocate for students and build lasting change in many different roles and fields. Join our network of 11,000 corps members teaching in 48 regions across the country, plus 32,000 alumni who work across sectors to create change.

Full salary and benefits. Candidates from all majors and academic backgrounds are eligible to apply to Teach For America.

RevTrax - job opportunity,  posted 1/9/2014

Hi CS department!  Hope all is well with you guys! How's everything at Trinity? I've just finished my second year here at a small startup  (~40 people) in NYC called RevTrax and everything's going well.  Paul Mertens (class of 2010) works with me here as well.

I just wanted to pass along a job opportunity for any CS grad who might be interested.  We're looking for Java developers. This is the job description:
RevTrax is looking for dynamic, highly motivated Java developers to join our development team.  Development will be both server-side web-based applications as well as batch/console applications.
RevTrax is a marketing technology company that empowers brands and retailers to drive and measure in-store sales through secure, personalized digital coupons and offers. Its scalable enterprise solutions provide online-to-offline revenue attribution, and promotion intelligence across all digital channels and devices. Founded in 2008, RevTrax is headquartered in New York City.

Responsibilities

You’ll be developing both web applications as well as high performance batch jobs.  Development is done in Java.  The applications are consumer applications, so solid development and testing are a must.  The ideal candidate will be very detail oriented with solid Java skills.  You’ll be involved in all areas of the software development cycle beginning with design through implementation.  The products you’ll be working on are based on our core-Java architecture and consist of web-based consumer facing applications, web services, and a web portal for our clients.
You’ll be working within a small team in an entrepreneurial culture and engage directly with a wide variety of clients and other client vendors.   This is an excellent opportunity to be part of a dynamic team where your contributions truly matter.  Development is fast paced and exciting.
Skills
•        Java and SQL are requirements.  Core-Java and web-based application experience is required.
•        Experience with XML / XSLT, UML and Web Services is a plus.
•        Strong written and oral communication skills are also highly valuable
