Work With Us at Hacker Paradise. Travel The World!
 

We Are Hiring!




Explore the world. Lead a community. Make a difference.

We are Hiring!

We are continuing to grow and are looking to hire new people for the positions listed below!

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 are we 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.

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. 

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.

What's in it for you?

You’ll learn how to:

 - Be part of a growing startup

 - Say hello, thank you, and cheers in so many languages

 - Work from a coworking space, a park, a cafe, or even a bar

 - Fit everything you need for an entire year in a suitcase

 - Find a routine and be productive while on the road

 - Be part of a global family

You won't learn how to:

 - Explain to your friends and family what it is that you do for work.

 - Honestly, they will pretend but they will just always think you're on vacation.


A little more on us, our Culture and Mission

Hacker Paradise was started in 2014 from the need to escape from the typical startup hustle that can leave people burnt out and disillusioned with the startup world. By allowing people to change their environment, we set up a nomadic community where they are more motivated and inspired to accomplish their goals--whether those be professional or personal.

We aim to help people grow professionally while getting out to experience the world. We want to create a community for people who care about experiences more than possessions but still value getting things done and making a difference in our communities.

We also have fun. Lots and lots of fun.

We believe in some core values:

 - Community first

 - Diversity

 - Inclusivity

 - Engagement

 - Empathy

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.

Spoiler alert: we’re fairly addictive and you’ll not want to leave.

TRIP LEADER

 

About the Position

We are looking for Trip Leaders to lead our Hacker Paradise starting with our winter and spring trips in South America and Southeast Asia and wherever we decide to go after that.

Your job is to make sure the trip runs smoothly and everyone has an awesome time. The job requires a deep understanding of who our participants are and what they are looking for.

A Trip Leader’s main goals are to:  

- 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.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities for a trip leader fall into roughly two categories: managing the community and facilitating on the ground.

Community manager responsibilities include:

- Set the culture of the group

- Manage conflict within the community

- Onboard and engage new members of the community

- Connect with the local community through events

- Cultivate connections between members of the community

- Seek feedback from the group and iterate on our processes & structure

- Help manage the Hacker Paradise social media

- Be an active participant on Slack and at social events

Facilitation responsibilities include:

- Organize weekly talks, workshops, and lunches

- Address Wi-Fi issues

- Take care of the projector, the router, and other Hacker Paradise gear

- Handle logistics for arrivals and departures & issues for housing and coworking spaces

What we're looking for

We’re looking for people who can commit to at least one year of traveling & working with Hacker Paradise. There will be 3 weeks every several months for you to recharge.

We’re looking for people who have experience:

- Leading and managing groups of people, especially in a role outside of a normal 9-5 office job (being a camp counselor, RA-ing in college, managing people, etc.)

- Organizing events (conferences, hackathons, meetups, etc.)

- Working with creative and technical people (bonus points if you’re creative and/or technical yourself)

- Resolving conflict (non-violent communication, etc.)

- Working with high autonomy, either professionally or on your own projects

- Living or traveling abroad for extended periods

Compensation

The best part about Hacker Paradise for us has been the ability to (1) travel the world and (2) be part of a fantastic community, developing friendships that last far beyond the trips themselves.

In terms of financial compensation, you will receive free travel, housing, & coworking when leading a trip and a stipend on top of that for living expenses during the trip.

Time Commitment

Your role should involve an average of 35 hours per week of formal work. Some weeks may involve more or less than that depending on activities, and there may be a fair amount of informal work (people asking you about logistics at dinner or during off-hours).

You might opt to work on some small side projects. However, Hacker Paradise must be your number one priority during this period. If a conflict arises, we’ll expect you to put your role with us over your other commitments.

Applications for this role closed on
Dec 17, 2017.

You can still fill up the form and we'll let you know when future opportunities come up.
