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. A few years later, we are a rapidly growing, diverse team of 150+ in SoHo, NYC. We’ve raised over $40m in venture capital funding from top investors including Union Square Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Naspers, Y Combinator, and more.

Codecademy is looking for a Staff (Senior) Data Engineer who will partner with the Director of Data Engineering and Data Science to devise a strategic roadmap to meet our data needs. Our application has accumulated billions of data points and is generating millions more each day that we are looking to use for building more intelligent recommendations and learning solutions for our millions of learners. We believe that everyone’s learning journey is unique and we can leverage data to personalize learning for each user.
Our data team will work on three key areas: building a data platform, building and supporting ML models, and building and supporting analytics (internal and external). In this role you will design and implement various solutions that can support all of our data use cases from the ground up.
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.
