About Junction

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 1500+ hackers together for a weekend-long experience. Besides the events, we have built a hackathon platform, Junction Platform.

The Junction team consists of 9 full-timers in Espoo, Finland, a bunch of amazing volunteers, and our global JunctionX teams in countries across the world. Our team is rather young as most of us are still students. We have great team spirit and an independent work atmosphere but also a lot of responsibility. 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 the work very motivating. So as important as it is that you know the basic skills needed for this role, we are all still learning and growing in our roles as the year progresses.
