Who We Are

CodeCombat is building a new way for K-12 students and at-home learners to learn how to code, using real programming languages to explore adventure games. Students learn how to write functions to control their hero avatars, implement puzzle-solving strategies, and code their own games. We are committed to researching, experimenting, and iterating new ways to marry education with fun for students worldwide.

We recently released Ozaria, a Computer Science program, adventure game, and fantasy story where students master core Computer Science concepts. The unfolding narrative creates a powerful and engaging student-centered learning experience, with each student’s investment in Ozaria’s story paralleling the investment they are making in their own learning journey.

We are a small, determined, and tight-knit startup dedicated to providing an enjoyable, meaningful place to work. Team members pursue a healthy work/life balance with flexible working hours. All of our team members work remotely from all around the world, with concentrations in San Francisco and Beijing.

Our Values

Our work is purposeful.

We bring our personal best every day, because our game-based learning can be life-changing for young people.

Strength comes from interdependence.

We recognize that each of us is central to the mission of CodeCombat. We know our differences create strength and resilience. We engage one another with respect for who we are, not only what we do. We create community with intention, because we need each otherand because it’s fun.

Kind, not just “nice”.

We don’t let fear of not being “nice” get in the way of the direct communication that underpins healthy relationships. We build strong connections through honest dialogue, even when the conversations are difficult.

Structure can be liberating.

Transparent processes let us focus on making the right decisionsand they create channels for diverse voices to speak. Eliminate information silos and shadow structures; create known communication channels and clear responsibilities.

We can operate at any speed.

We’re thoughtful about how fast we go. We pay attention when the lights change. Sometimes we walk.

Learning and growth go hand-in-hand.

Every experience is an opportunity to learn, and our team is growing every day. When we think we know it all, it means we have more to learn.
