About Codecademy

Codecademy is an education company. But not one in the way you might think. We're committed to building the best learning experience inside and out, making Codecademy the best place for our team to learn, teach, and create the online learning experience of the future.

Education is old. The current public school system in the US dates back to the 19th century and wasn't designed to scale the way it has. Lots of companies are working to disrupt education by changing the way things work in the classroom and by bringing the classroom online.

Company Culture

Codecademy runs on our employees' love of learning whether it be our internal brown bags on a variety of topics, our engineering beloved lightning rounds, or our weekly slack book dumps where employees across the company enthusiastically recommend recent books they've read.
