We've been lucky to have an amazing group of interns over the past few years. Some of our previuos summer interns wrote about what it was like to intern at CodeHS, which you can read about here: 

From one of our interns, Andy: "CodeHS exceeded my expectations for an internship in every way. From the time I started working I was given projects that would make a real difference to teachers and students. I can open the site and see the features and changes I implemented over the summer, something my friends who worked at larger companies can’t do."

Several of our interns have become full time employees at CodeHS.
