We Are More
Than Just Hackers
We're a diverse group of creatives, engineers, academics, and entrepreneurs who work hard, play hard, and travel the world.
Who Travels With us
We find that most people who join Hacker Paradise fall into certain categories. Of course, you don’t have to fit into one of these! If you’re an astronaut with a side hustle, or a snake handler with an app to build: we’re here for you too.
Experienced Remote Worker or Digital Nomad
A lot of Hacker Paradise-ers fall in the bucket of full or part-time remote workers that have traveled extensively on their own.
Hacker Paradise allows the remote worker to take a break from solo travel to let someone else deal with the wifi issues. Because sometimes it’s nice to delegate.
The one new to remote work travel aka Nomad Newbie
Hacker Paradise can help with a multitude of potential barriers to going remote – like structuring the conversation with your employer, or handling all the logistics.
Maybe you’re working on a big business dream or building out a freelance consulting career.
This ambition and drive to BYOB (be your own boss) are common traits in the Hacker Paradise community, and we think the supportive nature of our crew is the best part of the remote work lifestyle.
The One On Sabbatical Or In Transition
Ready to dive into passion project, new idea, or begin that novel? Unsure of where to start in a personal or career related pivot?
We know sitting in your living room or at that same desk in the library is just not going to cut it. Going remote can provide a huge amount of energy, drive and inspiration.
Finish your project and have rad travel experiences at the same time and use Hacker Paradise as a springboard to jump start your new idea and build a global network.
We Love our Hp-ers
Introducing a few of our favorites and the nice things they've said about us
Game Developer, Australia
“I travel with HP mostly because of the community. HP brings together an amazing group of people who bring the travel experience to a whole new level.”
“I love the idea of working while traveling, and Hacker Paradise in particular is well organized and has a healthy work-play-explore balance.”
“HP is a wholesome program in every regard. From micromanagement to bigger logistical and operational details, the HP team is phenomenal.”
“The HP community is constantly inspiring me. Meeting these open, curious, creative innovators, challenges and encourages me to follow my dreams.”
“I love the feeling of reuniting with friends (old and new) in a completely new corner of the world! I love how in HP you can make genuine and lasting connections across cultures, professions, ages, life values, languages, and just in general with people you would probably never meet in your “normal” life.”
Growth Hacker & Editor, UK
“HP feels like one big extended family of awesome, like-minded people, and there’s always something fun going on to get involved with. If you told me this time last year that I would be midnight skinny-dipping with sparkling plankton on a paradise island in the middle of December, it would have made the rain and snow a lot easier to deal with.”
“HP helped me broaden my horizon on technology, get out of my comfort zone and work on something new in a new environment, with lots of very interesting new people. I keep coming back, once or twice a year, because HP for me is a great mix of work, social, exploring new places and to escape the cold and dark Dutch winters.”
Nurse & Fiction Writer, USA
“HP has provided me with life-long friendships, new adventures and crazy stories to share, amazing networking opportunities, and the ability to have weekly educational sessions on interesting and varied topics. I highly appreciate the focus on professional growth and development while maintaining accountability for the projects we’re currently working on.”
Graphic Designer, USA
“I not only want to travel the world, I also want to grow my global community and refresh my passion for freelancing. I accomplished all of that on my first trip so came back for more!”
Entrepreneur & Writer, USA
“I was nervous about balancing productivity and fun while traveling abroad, but the HP community provides a perfect balance of structure and spontaneity. What really makes the whole thing work is the people.”
“Hacker Paradise is always a great group of people, and I’ve been 8 times I love it so much! I get to explore cities like Ubud, which I wouldn’t normally go to.”
Software Developer, India
“As a backpacker I generally find it hard to travel and work because everyone around you is just exploring. HP solved that problem by taking care of the logistics and providing a curated community of highly motivated digital nomads.”
