Play a vital role in Hack Club’s nonprofit mission to create a “hacker generation”: these are millions of young people with technical skills, a positive, curious mindset, and a network of like-minded friends from all backgrounds.

Hack Club is a nonprofit education organization, founded by high-school dropout/coder Zach Latta and run by a team of young, highly-creative engineers, overseeing a global network of tens of thousands of teen coders in the US and around the world.

We are looking for a smart, creative marketer to grow our movement, from 20,000 teenagers worldwide to hundreds of thousands of teen hackers. Your goal is to deeply understand technical teenagers across the US and craft creative methods to reach them. You'll run operations and manage a budget to pay a handful of highly technical teenagers. 

Hack Club is engineer-led, and half of our staff is younger than 25.  We are well supported by philanthropists, including a number of West Coast-based engineer-founders. Our content features regularly atop Hacker News, and on GitHub Education’s blog + we've already been featured in Wall Street Journal, CBS News, and other newspapers.
