JOB DETAILS
 

We are NYC based but remote friendly!

Hello, World! Codecademy has helped tens of millions of learners upgrade their careers, build meaningful projects & gain confidence in their skills with engaging, accessible, & flexible education on programming & data skills. We provide hands-on interactive lessons ranging from Python to R to Javascript & everything in between. Our learners have gone on to start companies, new jobs, & new lives thanks to what theyve learned with Codecademy, & were thrilled to be working to take that impact to the next level.

Codecademy was started in 2011 by two college students in a dorm room at Columbia that were frustrated by the huge gap between education & employment. Almost a decade later, we are a rapidly growing, diverse team of 100+ headquartered in SoHo, NYC. Weve raised over $40m in venture capital funding from top investors including Union Square Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Naspers, Y Combinator, & more.

If you want to help build a business that impacts tens of millions of people each year & helps them lead better lives, join us!

This team is focused on attracting new learners to Codecademy & enrolling them in the right learning experience within our products. The team helps grow our business by understanding our learners & using this information to make our Pro product more appealing.  We work on projects like our product experimentation framework, finding new ways of acquiring users, & shipping experiments to improve our user experience. 

If youre passionate about convincing more people that they can learn technical skills & finding the right way & time to introduce them to our products, this is the team for you.

 WHAT YOU'LL DO

  • Extend the code evaluation engine that parses & evaluates code samples submitted by our learners, millions of times every single day (Go, Docker, AWS)
  • Improve the interactive Learning Environment by creating new experiences, & increasing its reliability & performance (React, Ruby on Rails, Go)
  • Design & improve systems for gaining insights about user learning (Ruby on Rails, Go, AWS Redshift/SQL)
  • Design & improve APIs to enable other product teams to surface learning data to users in novel ways (Ruby, Go)
  • Scale learning content production capacity by building new content production workflows in our internal CMS (React, Ruby, Go)

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

  • A minimum of 3 years of experience developing web applications using Ruby on Rails, Go, and/or JavaScript
  • Experience designing APIs from the ground up; comfortable with API design patterns (REST, RPC)
  • A passion for testing best practices; can write unit tests in your favorite language with your eyes closed
  • Experience working with both SQL & NoSQL databases. We currently use a combination of PostgreSQL, MongoDB, & Amazon Redshift
  • Familiarity with containerization technologies. We use Docker & Kubernetes extensively in development & production

WHAT WILL MAKE YOU STAND OUT

  • Experience with ops and/or containerization technologies: Kubernetes, Terraform, EC2, ECS, Puppet, Ansible, Chef, etc.
  • Experience working with modern front-end frameworks. We use React, Redux, & Webpack
  • Particularly strong front-end experience in the React ecosystem
  • Expertise in HTML & CSS, with a knack for layout, specificity, cross browser compatibility, & accessibility
  • Proven empathy for our users, such as a background in education or past experience using our site

At Codecademy, we are committed to teaching people the skills they need to upgrade their careers. Codecademy aims to educate a richly diverse demographic of users with our product & in order to accomplish this, we believe our team should reflect that rich diversity. Our company celebrates diversity in all of its forms-- race, gender, color, national origin, marital status, sexuality, religion, veteran status, age, ability, disability status-- & works to create an inclusive workplace where people of all backgrounds & beliefs are empowered to better their futures.
