Today we’re thrilled to share the latest addition to the Picsart family. We’ve acquired the learning platform Code Republic!
Since 2016, Picsart has been hosting information technology courses under what is today known as Picsart Academy. It provides world-class online learning opportunities for students of all levels in IT, including web development, AI, machine learning, data science, product management, and more. Code Republic will be joining Picsart Academy to help us further amplify our technology education offering.
The Next Generation of Top Tech Talent
We’ve seen thousands of students advance their technology skills by successfully completing Picsart Academy programs. Every year we receive hundreds of highly qualified applications from students with diverse skill sets and backgrounds – including some with no previous technical background, opening the doors for them to start a promising tech career. Upon completion of the program, many students have received job offers at Picsart. One of our previous students even started as a Picsart Master before he became an Associate Product Manager at Picsart. Now he helps create some of your favorite tools!
Did you know that Picsart was founded as the result of a collaboration between a teacher and his students? Because of this, learning and education have always been at the core of our DNA. And we’re excited to continue supporting learning efforts by educating the next generation of top tech talent.
Code Republic Acquisition
This new addition of Code Republic will allow Picsart Academy to support additional courses, topics, languages, and locations around the world. All 20+ Code Republic employees will join the Picsart Academy team. In fact, Code Republic’s Founder Vardan Grigoryan is a boomerang Picsart employee, having previously worked as a Senior Engineer at Picsart for over two years. He’s also been teaching coding bootcamps regularly since 2012, so he’s a pro at educating engineers.
Picsart Academy courses are currently offered in the Armenian language only, and will be beginning a new round of in-person classes in Yerevan this month. We’re looking forward to launching English language courses virtually later this year and expanding in-person courses to additional cities.
There’s so much more to come from Picsart Academy and we can’t wait to share with you! If you’re interested in learning more and applying, visit the Picsart Academy.
