Hard PM skills
Soft (essential) skills
Additional nice to haves
We’re Louder Than Ten. We’re not like other project management training companies and this ain’t the PMP. We’re a worker-owned cooperative (actively transitioning) that creates digital project management curriculum for modern digital orgs and their people. And we put humans and democracy at work at the centre of everything we do. We strive to be an ethical, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, people-first company committed to equity and justice.

How the hiring process works
Do we all teach the same thing? Is there a centralized curriculum?
You will teach the same foundational principles using our curriculum: the ethos and philosophies should align and you will use the session content much like a textbook you reference, but you can adapt your approach, create fun exercises, and tailor the style of your teaching in a way that improves it for all of us.
Do I get to help shape the curriculum, and future products and ideas that support the growth of Louder Than Ten’s programs?
We want our trainers to help us enhance and refine the curriculum since we believe that project management and ops are evolving disciplines best defined by the community. So you’ll have the ability to help refine the curriculum throughout the year.
How do vacations work? Do I have to find a teacher replacement?
We build in regular time off into the curriculum each year that lines up with most major holidays (so you can use that time to prep or can take time off).
If you want to take off a specific time period during the teaching year, you’re responsible for coordinating that with your class, or another trainer, and letting us know.
Is there an opportunity to do LT10 consulting for creative teams?
Yes, definitely. We offer a package that enables our trainers to also consult with owners, executives, and their teams. This would depend on your experience, skill, and comfort level. So you could teach a class and consult as well.
Can I eavesdrop on a class so I know how the format runs?
Yep, we’ll schedule you to teach a class or workshop, but you can also watch a recording of a past class to get a feel for how the classes are set up. You could also teach a special workshop with the students.
You mentioned having me demo teach a class or a workshop—would it be a real class or a simulation?
First you'll demo to us internally. If we hire you, you'll teach real folks in real courses: for example, we might ask you to teach a paid session on prioritization so you can demo the setup. We gather student and trainer feedback to do a formal evaluation with you to vet your skills.
