Join an ABnormal Team

Joining RocketHour is NOT a normal job. We are an inspired startup: constantly moving, constantly improving, constantly asking ourselves, “How can we do things better?” We take our work seriously, yet playfully. And we have HUUUUUGE dreams.

We are a place for learners – for folks who value candid, constructive feedback. We are a place for jokers – for those who laugh easily. We are a place for educational nerds – for people looking to master the craft of teaching kids to code.
