Khan Internships

Spend a few months at the Academy,
building free education for the world.

Help millions of students learn what they want, when they want

Khan Academy's content is used by classrooms and individuals in over 20 languages around the world. More than 920,000,000 interactive math problems have been done. Our faculty's videos have been viewed over 225,000,000 times. As an intern, any improvement you make can instantly help millions of students learn whatever they want, whenever they want. If this type of educational scale excites you as much as it does us, we need help covering the entire map with students.

Let's turn this whole map red.

We treat interns more like cofounders

Read these stories from our past interns. They've solved difficult technical, UX, and social problems in ways we never would've thought of. We hand our interns the most important features Khan Academy's working on and rely on them to produce excellence in return. Unlike other internships, you won't be tossed a list of edge-case bugs that nobody else wants to solve. You'll be expected to maturely own a project that may affect millions of students.

Improve real lives, not just pageviews

We get emails and letters daily that share the inspiring and personal stories of Khan students and teachers. From a parent unleashing their 2nd-grade son on advanced algebra to a teacher finally able to keep track of her students' progress to a student rediscovering her love of math, we feel incredibly lucky to affect real lives. When you run an A/B test or get usability feedback from a teacher at Khan Academy, you know you're working toward a meaningful metric.

 

We offer mentorship and then some

We treat our internship program as the healthiest, most important source of full-time recruiting we have. From day one to the end of your internship you'll have an experienced teammate who considers it their job to make sure you're growing the skills you need. Something's in your way? Let us know, we'll fix it. Yearn to learn fancy javascript tricks? We've got you covered. Wanna hear stories about the early days of Google? Ditto. Whatever you're working on, you'll find a teammate interested in helping you learn.

Our internship experience is...eclectic

We've been known to have weekly guitar lessons run by Rock Academy's lead musical instructor. Every internship so far has been defined by epic board game nights. One of our interns flew to Guatemala to give a TEDx talk. Sal's always around the office to tell you about his 10-year vision for Khan Academy. So you won't just be coding for three months straight. You'll enjoy the passion, quirks, and friendliness of a team full of unique talents.
