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
Bob, UIUC ‘14
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.
