Hello, World! Codecademy has helped over 45 million people from around the world upgrade their careers with engaging, accessible, and flexible education on programming and data skills.

We provide over 200 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. 10 years later, we are a rapidly growing, diverse team of 150+ in SoHo, NYC. We’ve raised over $80 million in venture capital funding from top investors including Union Square Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Naspers, Y Combinator, Owl Ventures 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 looking for a driven Human Resources Business Partner who will serve as a consultant to management on human resource-related issues and can help lead key People initiatives for our rapidly growing team! Our vision for our People Ops Business Partners is pretty unique. We expect our BPs to operate as though they are truly a part of the departments and teams they support: this means getting to know the day-to-day of those team members, anticipating problems, and proactively addressing any concerns before they become issues. We believe creating this close relationship will enable us to drive a truly stellar employee experience!

  • Recommend, develop, and implement new HR processes
  • Support organizational growth by revising and improving People Operations initiatives such as Performance Reviews, Compensation Planning and/or Manager Training
  • Maintain strong knowledge of legal requirements related to day-to-day management of employees and ensuring regulatory compliance, and manage administrative tasks associated with maintaining a compliant workforce.
  • Act as a coach for both employees and leadership; hold a high bar for our Codecademy values

What you’ll need

  • 5+ years of experience in People Ops/HR
  • 2+ years of experience in an HRBP or similar role
  • Ability to build and develop relationships, including ability to influence decision making and decision makers

What will make you stand out
