JOB DETAILS
 

Hello, World! Codecademy has helped over 45 million people from around the world upgrade their careers with engaging, accessible, & flexible education on programming & data skills. We provide over 200 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. A few years later, we are a rapidly growing, diverse team of 75+ 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!
