Junction is a not-for-profit hackathon and tech community, with a mission to bridge the gap between creators by making everyone fall in love with technology. We organize hackathons and other tech events - around the year and around the world. The event-filled year peaks annually in November with our flagship event Junction: Europe's leading hackathon, bringing 2000+ hackers together for a weekend-long experience. Besides the events, we have built a hackathon platform, Junction App.
The Junction team consists of 8 full-timers in Finland, a bunch of amazing volunteers and our global JunctionX teams in countries across the world. Our team is rather young, and as most of us are students. We have a great team spirit and an independent work atmosphere. The work we do is very much self-directed, but we love cooperation and helping each other out. At Junction, we are able to mould our roles to the direction we want, which makes our jobs very motivating. So, as important as it is that you know the basic skills needed for this role, we are all still learning and that’s very much okay!
