Why Work at Udacity?

We believe that education is no longer a one-time event but a lifelong pursuit. Technology is advancing and there is a growing gap in skills and the knowledge needed to contribute to modern society. We're rethinking how education is delivered to provide relevant, affordable and lifelong learning opportunities.

We teach modern programming, software development, data science, product design, and entrepreneurship in an engaging, accessible way that emphasizes mastery over memorization.

How We Work

engineers developing. they don't even see the code anymore, just intro to cs student, data science student, machine learning...

Whatever the best cutting edge technology is, we aim to use it! We're on the latest Angular, Bootstrap, and Grunt. We keep an eye to what's coming next, and aren't afraid to switch things up when a breakthrough tech releases—or to build our own and open source it. To support this approach, we use testing and modularity as core aspects of our development culture, and we're strongly averse to legacy lock-in.

To support each other's growth as engineers we talk, teach, and try new tech together frequently.

We write both features and their tests with the latest lightweight tools, such as Karma, Protractor, and Istanbul.

We love to teach, learn, and learn about teaching. Many of us are former teachers or education researchers and are driven to have a personal impact on our students' learning.

We're particularly drawn to improving the new world of online-only learning and discuss, integrate and advance the latest education research.

We work hard to build the most engaging, effective courses we can. We integrate rapid prototyping, expert and student feedback, and usage data to constantly improve our courses.

We orient ourselves entirely around our students' learning—driven by our passion for teaching and diverse set of quantitative backgrounds.

We blend a data-driven approach and student goals and situations to support personalized learning experiences, including mentoring, concept and code feedback, and on-demand support.

We use custom technologies to support our students' online learning, and we regularly meet with engineering to improve these technologies.

We are committed to supporting one another's personal growth through a flexible, feedback-oriented community-structured environment.

We're a small team in a collaborative company that values empowerment and ownership. As a result, we work at the project level, not the task level. Our work extends beyond design into product, strategy, and marketing.

We iterate quickly with qual and quant feedback. For qual, we've built external and internal user testing into our design process. For quant, we use external analytics, AB testing, and surveys.

We constantly experiment with new tools to enhance the way we approach design, including framerJS, Quartz Composer, and more. Learning is hugely supported within the company.
