iXperience is a study abroad academy in Cape Town that draws students from the world's top universities, such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and Oxford. We teach rigorous, immersive courses in high-demand skills—topics that are often taught poorly, or not at all, at traditional university.
Project-driven and hands-on
We believe that the centuries-old university model—one that often includes unengaged professors and uninspiring lectures—can be radically improved. We craft each of our courses around projects derived from real-world problems, so our students are empowered to create value from the theory they learn.
Our teachers are our lifeblood, and are treated and rewarded as such.
You'll be teaching at Workshop 17 at the V&A Waterfront, with blazing fast wifi, fully-equipped classrooms, and breathtaking views.
A community of support
You'll be working alongside other industry experts who, like you, share their knowledge generously and are eager to be colleagues and friends.
Our teachers are rewarded at rates competitive with their industry, and incentivized to grow, share, and excel.
"If you’re a teacher, you haven’t really taught until you’ve spent all day every day with your students in an environment like iXperience."

"The community of teachers at iX are some the smartest, kindest, and fun people I know and it was an honor to be a part of that. iX teachers and TAs are people who genuinely care about education and teach out of a passion for what they do. I loved that students would be out of their context and able to learn by doing - and learn things that are relevant, not just theoretical."

"It was one of the best moments of my life. Sitting and watching the students present ideas and prototypes that could well be candidates for incubator funding was a treat I’ll never forget. The projects they built sought to solve problems like HIV prevention, access to doctors online, prevention of exhaustion from electronics over-use, and lots more."
Coding Teacher 2014, Co-founder and CTO at Rested
"Between building lesson plans from scratch, delivering guest lectures, and holding office hours for dozens of bright university students, I know that I had exposure to teaching experience that is uniquely impactful for someone so young. This is a very tough job, but the lessons I learned will be invaluable for my future career and life - wherever they may take me."
