Who Are We?

Hacker Paradise is a diverse community of professionals working remotely and experiencing the world. To date, 512 people from 51 countries have participated in our trips (often repeatedly), making our family’s skill range great.

In 2014, our founders Casey and Alexey started Hacker Paradise as a way to help remote workers have a sense of community and get intellectual stimulation while traveling.

Our goals are different, but we all share at least one trait: ambition — ambition to complete passion projects, ambition to boost careers and ambition to engage in unfamiliar cultures.

What Do We Do?

We take care of logistics; you get productive.

Our facilitators find the best co-living and co-working spaces (wi-fi has got to be fast!), so there’s nothing getting in the way of your work. We organize skill shares and social events for professional and personal development. We scout out all our locations in advance thoroughly to make your transition smooth and to be able to answer any of your questions.

All you need is to book your flights, organize your visa and bring along the projects you’re working on.

When Do We Work?

Everyone has their own exciting projects, so you choose your own work schedule and personal routine. You get the freedom of a solo traveler with the benefits of a working community. All activities are optional, so they won’t get in the way of any big deadlines.

But we welcome you to join in as many professional activities as possible such as workshops and talks. In the past we’ve had guest speakers like Leo Widrich (co-founder of Buffer), Taavi Kotka (CIO of Estonia) and Matz (creater of Ruby) share their expert knowledge with us, so the benefits are beyond words.

Past Trips

We’ve run over 20 trips since 2014! You can see below all of the places we have already been and when.
