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. 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 an expert programmer or academic to provide guidance as we build our DevOps offerings, which we’ll teach using tools such as GitHub Actions, Docker, and Kubernetes. The Subject Matter Expert provides the Codecademy Curriculum team with specialized, up-to-date, nuanced insight into DevOps and how it should be taught. This is a paid, remote, contract position, with a typical commitment of 2-5 hours per week.

What You’ll Do

  • Work with a Curriculum Developer to create and refine a high-level syllabus for Introduction to DevOps
  • Create an end-to-end project outline for learners that includes all of the relevant skills and learning outcomes that will be taught within the course
  • Review the lessons, quizzes, projects, and other content items that other members of the Curriculum team create as we turn that syllabus into reality
  • Provide complex technical and pedagogical insights in such a way that other team members—and, ultimately, Codecademy learners—can understand

What You’ll Need

  • 5+ years of experience as a professional programmer or educator
  • Extensive knowledge of and real-world experience in DevOps
  • Experience with CI/CD concepts
  • Experience with Git, GitHub, and GitHub Actions
  • Experience with a major cloud computing platform: Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, or Google Cloud Platform
  • Experience with containerization: Docker, Microsoft Containers, or similar technology
  • The ability to provide clear, actionable, and empathetic feedback and explanation
  • A strong command of written and spoken English
  • What Will Make You Stand Out
  • 10+ years of experience
  • Experience with cluster management: Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, or similar technology
  • Experience with load balancing and microservices concepts
  • Experience in both programming and education
  • Experience teaching DevOps and related concepts specifically
  • Experience in online education at scale
  • Experience using the Codecademy platform

Application Note: With your resume, please share a Github repository demonstrating your work with DevOps. Should you prefer to share a private repository, a username with whom to share will be provided for you.

This is a contract, remote position. You can expect anywhere from ~2-5 hours of work per week, with the freedom to work wherever and at whatever times you want. You will be compensated (paid) bi-weekly.
