Backend Engineer (Python/Django)

Codingal , Anywhere · · Full-time employment · Programming

Codingal is on a mission to inspire school kids to fall in love with coding.

Codingal is the #1 coding platform and community for the school students to learn Computer Science by building apps, games, and websites. All classes are taught live 1:1 by vetted and trained teachers with programming background. We have an outstanding NPS of 79 and growing very fast!

We are backed by top investors including Rebright Partners and Y Combinator.

Coding helps improve logical thinking and problem-solving skills by 70% among kids at a young age, also enabling them to perform better in other subjects in school. Moreover, coding jobs are the future. They already constitute more than 60% of all jobs in science, technology, engineering, and math. While still in school, those who start young will be ahead of everyone by the time they get into college. They will be creators of the future. Learning to code at a young age will inspire more kids, including girls, to take up Computer Science as a major when entering college. Today, schools and traditional education systems are not equipped to provide the right coding education to children. Codingal is here to change that and empower every student with the tools, content, and live coding classes to start learning to code and build anything they can imagine.

We are looking for a Software Engineer who believes in this mission and is a hacker at heart.
