Looking for a Few Good Fellows

We’re looking for a few good fellows to come join our team!

The Codecademy Fellowship gives curious college students the chance to spend one year as professional software engineers working at a startup driven to change how people learn.

This spring we’ve had the pleasure of having Bob & Louis with us. Learn what they have to say about the experience below!

Meet the Current Fellows

Louis, MIT ‘14 Louis Sobel

Bob, UIUC ‘14 Bob

Why were you interested in becoming a Codecademy Fellow?

Bob: It seemed like an incredible opportunity to work with a very talented team working on a great mission. Louis: Gaining some practical industry experience that would apply some of the things I learned in school seemed like a great next step to shape my career.

What projects are you working on at Codecademy?

Louis: I am working on the interactive evaluation environment for languages like Python, Ruby and recently released PHP. Bob: I’ve spent most of my time here building the new Learning Interface.

How has the fellowship met your expectations?

Louis: They have been more than met. My expectations were to work with smart and driven people on problems that challenged me and gave me the opportunity to learn. Bob: Definitely. It’s an incredible learning experience to ship code everyday at a fast paced startup like Codecademy.

What is the best part about living in New York?

Bob: The energy of the city really is undeniable. There’s always something going on, new things to experience and learn. Louis: It’s been exciting to be part of the diverse and growing tech community in New York.

Any advice for future fellows?

Louis: Think about yourself and your education critically - what are you good at, where do you lack experience? The fellowship is an opportunity to learn things that you couldn’t learn in a classroom or internship. Bob: Be very specific with your application. Show us your personality, emphasize what makes you unique.
