We're not just looking for "hackers" and programmers to join our organizing team. If you have experience planning events or meetings, designing graphics, running social media accounts, leading organizations/clubs, or just about anything else, we'd love to have you on our team!
For HSHacks V, we are:- Looking to hold our event in March of 2020, although this may change- Aiming for a balanced gender ratio for both our organizing team and attendees- Targeting 400-500 high school attendees- Attracting student attendees from a variety of different backgrounds, including underrepresented groups in STEM, from all across the Bay Area (and maybe even country)
Organizers are split into 4 branches:- Operations, which is in charge of making the event itself successful, including organizing the schedule, meals, liability waivers, prizes, mentors, games, etc.- Sponsorship, which is in charge of reaching out to companies, sponsors, and partners to obtain donations, prizes, APIs, etc.- Tech, which creates the hackathon website, mobile apps, bots, etc.- Outreach, which promotes the event through social media, campus ambassadors, posters, press, etc. and processes attendee applications
This application is open to all individuals who meet the following criteria:- Attending high school during the 2019-2020 school year- Participated in at least 1 hackathon- Has some experience leading hackathons, organizations, school clubs, etc.
We expect you to:- Commit 3-6 hours per week, which may increase closer to the event- Complete assigned tasks on time- Be available for weekly director and team calls- Stay active on our Slack channel and messaging apps, and respond to all communications within 24 hours
Being a director will mean that you will take on a larger role compared to team members. You will be responsible for one of the four branches, and will lead a team of 2 to 6 people. This role will require a larger time commitment, and you will be shouldering more responsibility. However, you will have more opportunities to demonstrate your leadership abilities (including to colleges 😄), gain more experience, and play a major role in shaping how HSHacks is run.
If you are looking to be a team member but not a director, you do not need to fill out this form. Instead, fill out the team application at the following link: https://forms.gle/jpRVUEtLTHT2tx5o9
The deadline for this application is Sunday, August 25th, at 11:59 PM. After submitting, be on the lookout for an email with information about an interview call. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to email@example.com.
