Subject Matter Expert : Natural Language Processing


Job description

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. A few years later, we are a rapidly growing, diverse team of 100+ 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.

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!

  • Provide explanation of complex technical concepts in such a way that other team members—and, ultimately, Codecademy learners—can understand

  • 5+ years of experience as a professional programmer or educator
  • Extensive knowledge of and real-world experience with Python for natural language processing
  • The ability to provide clear, actionable, and empathetic feedback and explanation
  • A strong command of written and spoken English
