Send your contact information, a brief introduction and a note about why you want to be involved to: hello at


We have a number of positions in Communications available.  If you enjoy marketing, writing, social media, photography or videography then drop us a line.  You will get to work with our Partnerships and Digital Media Coordinator and help us engage the community, share what happens at the event, and interact with partners and sponsors.

We are looking for people to help with:

  • Social Media. Help us keep our site fresh, post content to our Twitter, Facebook and other social media channels at least every second day, and help us communicate with  our robohacker friends. Our team will help you identify what content to send out. You should commit about 2-3 hours per week up to the event and you will be onsite for the whole hackathon sharing all the great activity and energy.
  • Media Relations: Help us reach out to local media and share information about the event with them. You should commit about 2 hours per week up to the event, more the week of the event and you will be onsite for the hackathon interacting with our media partners.
