Edtech startup, Codingal, is looking to hire at least 1,000 teachers over the next four months. The hired teachers will serve as instructors for the platform. They will be trained by Codingal so that they become more efficient at their work.
The Company, which offers education in coding, will allow its teachers to work remotely and offer them competitive salaries in the range of Rs 25,000 to Rs 60,000.
The remuneration will be based on the number of classes taken by the teachers. They will also benefit from referral programmes, and receive incentives and mentorship bonuses.
The edtech firm had managed to raise funds to the tune of $1.2 million in September last year. The seed funding round saw investors such as Y-Combinator, Summer Capital, Day One Syndicate and Rebright Partners participating.
The firm had experienced extraordinary growth of about 500 per cent in 2021 with its presence in over 20 countries, catering to about 1.5 lakh registered users.
In October 2021, Codingal hosted ‘CodeQueens’, an online app, game and website-development hackathon meant only for K-12 girl students. The two-month long hackathon featured several coding challenges to build functional games, apps and websites.
In early 2022, the coding platform for K 12 students had received accreditation from STEM.org for the ‘World’s Best STEM-based Coding Curriculum’ application.
