We are looking for an engineer/educator to create and lead on technical projects for Hack Clubbers, with a strong focus on girls at Hack Club.

In this role, you would assist Hack Clubbers with their projects, as well as build your own small projects, and ship them regularly.

A couple of things about you:

  • You're passionate about building technical projects and find tinkering fun.
  • You've worked with teenagers and are excited to work 1:1 with them every day.
  • You are highly technical and work at a fast pace.
  • You played an important role in an online community when you were a teenager.
  • You embody the values of a model Hack Clubber: collaborative, kind, high integrity, helpful, and curious.
  • You have the traits of a wonderful friend: always encouraging, genuinely want to see students learn and figure out things on their own, excited to answer questions, and always wanting to help students find their own course of action.
  • You're excited to work 1:1 with high school students every day.

A formal list of your responsibilities would be something like:

  • Promote Hack Club to girl coders.
  • Exploring partnerships and events with Girls Who Code, Black Girls Code and Kode with Klossy, as well as other female coding organizations.
  • You would also help create events with leaders in industry to inspire our hackers.
  • We are actively looking for candidates who have worked successfully with girl hackers before. We invite and encourage all interested candidates to apply even if they don't feel they meet all of the criteria.
  • Build out all girl clubs for all girls schools.
  • Run a small team of Hack Club interns.
  • Listen to community members, and support them to execute on their ideas.

To work at Hack Club, you need to have a background in programming, but you should be inspired by making things fun. We picture our ideal candidate to be post grad and very on top of the new trends.

The compensation varies on past experience. We offer healthcare and 4 weeks paid vacation.

How to apply:

Email with "hopper" in the subject line, 3 bullet points demonstrating why you would be exceptional for the role, and your resume.
