InterviewBit, a Bangalore-based startup that runs an advanced online computer science program for college graduates and young professional engineers, has raised USD 20 million in one of the largest Series A financing rounds in the education sector.
The five-year-old startup’s Series A round was led by Sequoia India and Tiger Global. Global Founders Capital and some others participated in the round. The startup said it is also rebranding its online coding program, earlier called InterviewBit Academy, to Scaler Academy.
The startup said more than 2,000 students have enrolled in its six-month program to date, where it runs live-streamed sessions to coach aspiring software engineers for competitive job interviews in their industry.
