  • Handle private information with discretion, maintaining a high degree of confidentiality throughout
  • Coordinate internal staff & leadership meetings and off-sites on behalf of the CEO and following-up on action items

  • Ability to work independently and cooperatively to balance diverse and competing priorities in a fast-paced, deadline driven environment, while managing steady state responsibilities
  • Critical thinker and creative problem solver
  • Positive attitude, where no project is too big or small and you’re not afraid to pitch in where needed
WHAT WILL MAKE YOU STAND OUT:
  • Enthusiasm for the tech startup landscape!
  • Experience in a fast-paced, high-change business environment

An Insider's view of Codecademy

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office (emphasis in our) makes everyone feel welcomed from the moment they step in. We have great desks with sitting/standing accommodations, plants and other decor, lots of conference space and also my favorite: a large kitchen space to engage with teammates and collaborate. It is a laid back space that allows for serious work, but also fun.
