Clubs Lead @ Hack Club

New job open as of May 18th, 2021.

Please note: We're in the final stages of filling this position as of 2021-05-26. We'd still be happy to hear from you, but we want to note that we're currently in our final round of interviews.

At Hack Club (https://hackclub.com), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we're building a giant video game, but instead of being made out of bits and code, it's made out of teenagers. And instead of pushing players to get a high score, Hack Club helps teenagers learn to code, build the most meaningful friendships of their lives, and develop strong identities to become the future leaders our world needs.

Elon Musk spoke with Hack Clubbers last year and said Hack Club "makes me feel much more optimistic about the future".

Alongside the soccer players, theater kids, and band geeks, we aspire to create and foster a new type of high schooler: the teenage hacker. Our goal: to become as ubiquitous, as universal, and as culturally foundational for young people today as the Girl and Boy Scouts were 70 years ago.

Title: Clubs Lead

Job Description:

As our 8th full-time staff member, you'd be taking the reins of the central pillar of Hack Club: our Clubs Program, and lead it into becoming a special and deeply cherished experience in the life of every teenager who goes through it.

Every year, thousands of teenagers aged 14-18 across America find themselves in the same position in high school: they discovered a love of coding, want to spread their love of it through a community at their high school, but struggle when starting a coding club. That's where Hack Club comes in and why they decide to start Hack Clubs instead.

As the head of the Clubs Program, you will be responsible for helping hundreds of Hack Club leaders around the world run the best coding clubs. A formal list of your responsibilities would be something like:

A bit of what we suspect you'll be like:

Location: We have an in-person office in Burlington, Vermont where six of us work collaboratively. This is an in-person role, though this position can temporarily start remotely during COVID. Relocation assistance is provided.

To apply, email jobs@hackclub.com with "magic" in the subject line. We don't think we'll be able to identify you just by looking at your resume, so please include 300-400 words on your background relative to this role and why you're interested.

And last, some details on compensation. This role pays between $60 - $100K, depending on your experience---and as a nonprofit we know that's probably less than you'd make elsewhere. We offer healthcare and 4 weeks paid vacation.

- Zach Latta, Executive Director, and Christina Asquith, COO
