Reports To: Senior Advisor of Curriculum, Impact, and Innovation

Starting Date: March 2022

Compensation: $85,000 - $95,000 Full Time


Founded in 2013, Hack the Hood (HtH) is a non-profit organization based in Oakland, California with a mission to train early career youth and communities of color through tech skill-building programs grounded in justice and career navigation support that ensures economic mobility.
