Frequently Asked

Questions

Work & Productivity

What are the co-working spaces like?

Clean. Bright. Fast internet. Good chairs (don’t underestimate how important this is).

Co-working space specifics vary from location to location, but one thing that doesn’t change is it’s a place for you to be productive and get shit done.

The coworking spaces we partner with generally have the fastest internet in the city. We pay special attention to make sure the internet is high quality, consistent, and reliable. 

Sometimes we find ourselves working with a beach view and other times we’re in the heart of the city. Our co-working spaces have a range of facilities and setups for you to find something that will suit your work style.

Will I have everything I need to work effectively and productively?

Definitely. Work spaces are equipped with everything you need from solid internet (we’re re-emphasising since everyone asks about it) to spacious setups and loads of power outlets. 

Another thing we factor in is close proximity to our housing, restaurants, and cafés. Stop wasting your time stuck in traffic on your commute to work.

Do I need to worry that I won’t get enough private work time?

Not even one little bit. While Hacker Paradise is a community-oriented program, we all know that there will be times you need to put your headphones on, drown out the world around you and focus on getting your work done (or whatever work style suits you best). We most definitely respect the privacy of all our attendees.

We’ve had people write about how they are more productive while they are with us. See here.

The facilitators are at hand to plan activities and solve problems that arise so you can focus on getting your work done.

Can you find work for me?

Unfortunately, no. We don’t provide jobs for Hacker Paradise attendees, but we do know some great places to look. Both We Work Remotely and Remote OK, for example, are job boards for remote workers.

What can I work on?

You can work on anything you like! Most people spend their time doing their day job, whatever that might be. In addition, we encourage you to work on side projects such as innovative apps and future best-selling novels. You can use the Hacker Paradise community as a sounding board for ideas and improvements and we often have participants collaborate on projects.
