What our employees are saying
Why do you work at Codecademy?
“For me, Codecademy is the perfect blend of a for-profit business and a company trying to improve the world. I love that we empower millions of people around the world to better their lives and I get to learn how to scale a tech product. I get to focus both on making us a profitable company and helping people across the world."
Dan Layfield, Product
What makes you excited to go into work every day?
“When I first became a classroom teacher, I used to not be able to fall asleep the night before the first day of class - for just 20 students. And now I am teaching millions of people around the world and sharing something that I love. I can't think of one thing that I would rather be doing."
Sonny Li, Curriculum
What makes you excited to go into work every day?
“My coworkers! The engineering team is made up of passionate people who care deeply about educating Codecademy learners and each other. I know I can depend on my coworkers to help me learn and grow, whether they're pair programming to help me fix a bug or teaching the rest of the team how to taste coffee. Many engineers on our team volunteer at programs like ScriptEd or Girls Who Code, and we have bi-weekly lightning talks where we can share our latest passion projects or introduce the rest of the team to cool new coding libraries and frameworks. I'm excited to go to work every day because I know I'll be surrounded by people who invest time and energy to educate their peers and their communities."
Emily Giurleo, Engineering
What makes you excited to go into work every day?
“The opportunities for growth! Codecademy is a place of continuous evolution, which keeps the work exciting and new. What may have been the best technical product five years ago, may be vastly different from the best technical product tomorrow. We're encouraged to question solutions that worked in the past and see every problem with fresh, new perspective. Our learners are always growing and evolving, so what better way to serve them than use our collective talent to continuously evolve and meet their needs? That's what I love most about Codecademy."
Bana Malik, Engineering
Our values
At Codecademy, we live our values. They’re a part of our interview process, integral to how we work on a regular basis, and key to how we treat our learners.
Mission driven
Everyday, our company has the opportunity to help millions of learners live a better life through learning. Our mission is to build the best platform to teach technical skills.
We try to make all of our decisions open and to share information with our peers - even when this includes our financials and our hiring processes.
We all make mistakes. When we find them, we work together to fix them and over-communicate so we can all learn together.
We think it’s key to continue to evolve so we help each other get better by doing the same things our learners do: teaching and learning.
People first
We keep our bar high for our team so you’ll be surrounded by peers who are just as smart, ambitious, and curious as you are.
Team work
We won’t be able to revolutionize the educational space by ourselves. At Codecademy, we understand it takes a combination of different perspectives to build something truly life changing.
