Spend a few months building
free education for the world
Khan Academy's content is used by classrooms and individuals in over 25 languages around the world. More than 2 billion interactive math problems have been done. Our faculty's videos have been viewed over 400,000,000 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 your help to educate the entire world.
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. The people you'll work with come from all walks of life and are available to teach you new tricks and tell stories about their past. Whatever you're working on, you'll find a teammate interested in helping you learn.
Interns help solve our hardest challenges
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.
