Charleston, SC

Staff Accountant

WHO WE ARE

Data Protocol is a fast-growing, venture-backed education technology company based in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. We are transforming the way software developers build apps and products by doing two things:

1) we produce courses that are high-quality, propulsive, and engaging and

2) we deliver these courses in a proprietary learning environment that reflects how developers want to learn.


We are a rocketship. Mission control is an absolutely critical function for our team and our products as we build toward liftoff.

  • Clear Communicator — You can tailor communication based on the audience always striving for clarity.
