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

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 and 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-- and works to create an inclusive workplace where people of all backgrounds and beliefs are empowered to better their futures.
There is an introductory call with a member of the recruiting team that lasts roughly 30 minutes. We proceed with a take home test or a live coding challenge based on the candidate’s preference. After that we have a 4 hour interview consisting of a coding portion (in a language of the candidates choice) an architecture and design round, a cross functional interview, and a managerial interview with someone they’d be reporting into.
Codecademy believes that diversity and inclusion are inherent in and critical to our mission of empowering people everywhere to transform their personal and professional lives by helping them learn modern skills.
