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!

Codecademy is looking for experts to create technical articles on a wide range of topics as we expand and improve our free content offerings across our catalog. The Article Author will provide the Codecademy Curriculum team with one or more clearly written articles, generally from 600 words to 1,000 words, on subjects they have expertise in to aid learners in gaining a better understanding of different topics. This is a paid, remote, contract position, compensated with a flat rate per article, with a typical commitment of 5 - 15 hours per article.

What Will Make You Stand Out
