Hack Club Creative Events Engineer for Girls

Hack Club is a vibrant global community of young creators, hackers, and makers who are passionate about technology and innovation. Founded by a high school dropout in 2014, Hack Club now has tens of thousands of teenagers from the US and around the world, and has philanthropic support from SpaceX’s Gwynne Shotwell and Elon Musk, Michael Dell and Jack Dorsey.

Each year, Hack Club’s team of 22 people in our Vermont HQ support teenagers to develop their coding skills, run hackathons, finish coding challenges, run clubs and start their own projects.

We’re excited now to be hiring for our first software engineer to have the dedicated role of teaching coding to girls.
