HackGT Applications

posted in: Blog 0

Applications to join the HackGTeam are open from Monday, November 4th to Wednesday, November 20th! 

If you’ve ever been curious about joining the #DreamTeam, this is your opportunity. Our team is composed of thinkers, dreamers, and innovators – and we’re looking for the next generation of passionate and hard working go-getters from all across campus to help shape the future of HackGT!

Applications are due on Wednesday, November 20th at 11:59 pm and can be found at apply.hack.gt. All majors and years are encouraged to apply! 

In the next two weeks, we’ll also be hosting recruitment information sessions so you can get an idea of what being on the team entails. We’ll also have representatives from each of our four sub-teams to tell you a bit more about the work each team does. These sessions will be held:

  • Monday, November 11th @ 7:30 pm in Klaus 1443

While you are not required to attend an information session, it is highly recommended that you do.

Additionally, our four primary subteams include:

Operations: We make our events happen. We make put out fires and make sure the event runs smoothly. We are looking for self-starters who can take parts of our event and plan out every little detail.

Tech: HackGT has a lot of moving parts, so we build our own tech systems to make the event seamless. Tech focuses on polishing or, if needed, reinventing, parts of our events. Some projects from this year: we rebuilt our participant-sponsor web portal, created a hardware checkout system, and rolled our own mobile app.

Design: Are A E S T H E T I C S always on your mind? Design tackles a wide breadth of work from branding and marketing design to mobile and web app UX, print, animation, and physical structure building. We’re looking for passionate designers who are comfortable with being uncomfortable learning many new skills and ready to take on large scale design projects that will reach thousands of participants and students campus-wide.

Marketing: The communicators with a bit of pizzaz! Writers, photographers, videographers, salespeople, influencers – we cover it all. Building and cultivating the HackGT brand and spreading the word!

We’re excited to see all the stellar ideas you’ll bring to the HackGTeam and hope you’ll consider joining the #DreamTeam! With any questions, please feel free to reach out to hello@hack.gt – we’d love to help!
