HackTheU 2020 Organizer Applications
Hi there! HackTheU is looking for new members to join the organizing committee for 2020. We're a non-profit/student group based out of the University of Utah that hosts hackathons, workshops, and activities for all people interested in tech in the state of Utah -- partnering with companies like Galileo Financial Technologies, Facebook, L3Harris, Goldman Sachs, and Twitch.
HackTheU is looking for people to fill the following positions:
-- Director --
Direct, manage, and lead a committee of HackTheU. Directors are responsible for delegating tasks, running committee meetings, and communicating updates with the Chief Directors on what is going on in their committee. We anticipate a 2 to 3 hour/week commitment.
-- Member --
Members help accomplish tasks within each committee. They are responsible for the tasks they have taken on or have been delegated. We anticipate a 2 hour/week commitment.
There will be weekly committee meetings + biweekly all hands meetings. Directors will hold a directors meeting on weeks without an all hands meeting. Directors & Members must be university students for the entirety of 2020.
Our committees for 2020 are:
-- Logistics --
Organize sponsorships with companies. Manage and coordinate venues, food, hospitality, registration, themes, prizes, and more for our events.
-- Marketing --
Design and distribute marketing materials for our events. Organize tabling, press releases, social media, and more. Reach out to other student groups to involve them in our events.

Run and deploy software to help run our hackathon. Our main website is in Wordpress, our registration site is in TypeScript and hosted on AWS. Learn real-world development skills and deploy software to be used by hundreds of users. Organize hardware and software to be used by hackers.
