Hello, World! Codecademy has helped tens of millions of learners upgrade their careers, build meaningful projects and gain confidence in their skills with engaging, accessible, and flexible education on programming and data skills. We provide hands-on interactive lessons ranging from Python to R to Javascript and everything in between. Our learners have gone on to start companies, new jobs, and new lives thanks to what they’ve learned with Codecademy, and we’re thrilled to be working to take that impact to the next level.

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 about 200 distributed through North America and headquartered in SoHo, NYC. We’ve raised over $87.5m in venture capital funding from top investors including Kleiner Perkins, Naspers, Owl Ventures, Union Square Ventures, Y Combinator, and more.

If you want to help build a business that impacts tens of millions of people each year and helps them lead better lives, join us!

We are seeking a Freelance Copywriter with a passion for storytelling. This role collaborates with the Marketing team by creating impactful communications and content across all marketing channels, from digital ads and emails to landing pages and social media. This role presents a great opportunity to bring expressiveness to our brand and to collaborate with marketers, designers, and other writers to build creative ways to bring the Codecademy story to life. Your work will empower millions of people worldwide to learn how to code and create something. Together, we can redesign education and create the best online learning experience. 

WHAT YOU’LL DO
  • Craft engaging, strategic copy across a wide range of marketing projects, including campaigns, landing pages, paid ads, emails, product and feature launches, video, and more
  • Utilize a consistent Codecademy voice that extends to all products, features, and marketing communications
  • Collaborate with other Marketing team functions to shape projects, strategy, and creative requirements before the work starts
  • Brainstorm ideas for campaigns, individual assets, and any other creative/brand pursuits with other members of the Creative team
  • Collaborate closely with designers to conceptualize your copy within a visual framework
  • Maintain and improve processes within the Marketing and Creative team 
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
  • 3+ years of experience copywriting either in-house or at an agency
  • A strong portfolio of work that shows proficiency in writing for a variety of project types, mediums, and audiences
  • Strong time-management and organization skills consistently demonstrating the ability to handle multiple assignments simultaneously and meet deadlines
  • Experience working with cross-functional teams on complicated projects
  • Experience conducting or leveraging past user research to inform copy content and tone
  • Strong writing and grammar skills, with obsessive attention to detail
  • The ability to deliver polished copy with little guidance and limited feedback
  • Equal parts creative writer and strategic thinker: you experiment with your writing style while staying on brief
  • A creative mind and desire to push the boundaries
  • An allergy to marketing-speak and corporate jargon
WHAT WILL MAKE YOU STAND OUT
  • Programming knowledge or familiarity with technical terms
  • A passion for teaching the world to code

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.
