You choose when you work and get to meet people from all over the world. The hourly rate is pretty high so you can make a good salary if you mentor more than 8 students per week. The team in Designlab is very open and communicative if you have any question or issue. It's a very independent and fun work that you can do from wherever, whenever. Also, it allows you to train leadering and coaching skills.
Only 2 official breaks during the year and if you ask for more than a week off from mentoring, your students can probably be switched off to another mentor. The time spent on giving written feedback is not paid for (only the 1:1 sessions).

Strong remote first culture, friendly people and employee friendly policies like 4day workweek over summer
Going through somewhat tougher stretch due to tech layoffs hurting demand for the type of boot camps they offer

Designlab is a great channel for experienced designers who want to help the next generation get into the industry in a way that doesn't make them compromise their work-life balance. Excellent community and very responsive support staff!
Sometimes the matching algorithm doesn't work in your favor because most students select years of experience they prefer their mentor to have quite arbitrarily.
