Be A Part Of
A Global Team
Explore the world. Lead A Community. Make A Difference
We are continuing to grow and are looking to hire new people!
Spend the next year (or more) traveling the world to awesome locations while leading a ragtag crew of developers, designers, entrepreneurs, writers, project managers, and all-around cool people.
What we are Looking For
We are looking for people who love meeting new people, who are not afraid to ask or to give an opinion, but who also know when it’s time to listen. We gotta know what our community wants, so being able to listen is very important.
Your background is not important, but your experience is essential. We might stalk you on social media to get a sense of who you are outside of just your application you submit to us. We value uncanny superpowers like being nice to people, thinking outside the box, having a high emotional IQ, being communicative, working in groups, being empathetic and not being afraid of change or public speaking.
We strive to create a community where everybody feels included and accepted, regardless of age, gender, nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation or any other factors. We do not tolerate prejudices of any kind and we embrace the differences and quirkiness that are in our community.
What makes Hacker Paradise special?
We are the longest-running remote work and travel community. Our program is focused on professional and personal development with several events happening every week. You will play an integral part in helping people connect, collaborate, and grow.
We are a more than a group of people. We teach each other, help each other, rely on each other–basically, we become each other’s support structure on the road, even long after a trip is over.
We organize trips and manage community for people who want to have new experiences and get stuff done at the same time. Our program attracts freelancers, remote workers, entrepreneurs, people in transition, and people who simply want dedicated time to focus on a side project.
What's in it for me?
We’re looking for people who have experience:
Herding digital nomads, planning events, living the good life
Your job is to make sure the trip runs smoothly and everyone has an awesome time as part of our community. The job requires a deep understanding of who our participants are and what they are looking for.
We’re looking for people who can commit to at least one year of traveling & working with Hacker Paradise.
Cultivate Community: It’s a Trip Leader’s job to connect people, keep the community engaged, set the right culture, and make sure Hacker Paradise remains a safe space for everyone to come together and contribute. People that participate in Hacker Paradise trips often end up working together and forging long-lasting bonds.
Support Growth: At Hacker Paradise, we highly value personal and professional growth. The Trip Leader works to understand the goals of each of our participants and tries to help them achieve those goals during the trip.
Keep things running smoothly: On the trip, there will be the day-to-day of keeping the program running. Part of the Trip Leader’s job is to deal with the inevitable hiccups that come along the way and to ensure that participants have as smooth of an experience as possible.
