Khan Academy — Mountain View, CA (remote possible)

We're a small, non-profit tech startup bringing a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere.

Millions of people in all walks of life use our free platform to learn (check out testimonials at https://www.khanacademy.org/stories). Most of you reading this are probably familiar with Sal's videos, but we also have hundreds of videos by other teachers and a huge library of interactive exercises.

A few things we're currently working on building right now:

– Mobile apps to help students learn on the go and increase access to those who might not have access to a computer [1]

– Improved knowledge models so we can better predict what you know and what will help you [2]

– Infrastructure to make the site more reliable and faster for our millions of visitors every month [3]

We're especially looking for dev ops engineers, but we have a handful of other positions open. Unfortunately, we've filled up our slots for this coming summer internship, but we'd happily talk to intern candidates for future terms.

Hey Ben, I sent in a software developer application about 3 weeks ago (included all required information). If I haven't received a response by now, does that mean I probably wasn't selected to go on to an interview? Thanks!

It means our process is backed up further than we're proud of — sorry for the slow response. Can you email Kayla (kayla@khanacademy.org) and me (ben@khanacademy.org) and we'll get back to you asap?

No problem, just sent you an email. Thanks for responding.
